Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period film Padmavati’s release date was suddenly postponed from December 1 to an infinite period. But, now it is CONFIRMED that the movie is not going to get released in 2017, and the reason is not related to any dream sequence of offensive script. Read below to know the exact reason of delaying the movie release.
The CEO of the Censor Board, Anurag Srivastav revealed the actual reason behind the postponing and hinted that it will take at least two months for the release.
Anurag Srivastav recently told Hindustan Times that, “The disclaimer had not been mentioned by the makers. We need an official thing from the makers about what your stand on this actually is. Is it based on fiction, or based on historical facts – you have to put it completely. By leaving that out, the document was (deemed) incomplete, because, for examination purposes, we need to know what they (makers) are saying.”
According to the rule, CBFC at least takes 68 days to pass the film with strict action. Anurag Srivastav further added that “The rule has always been there. There has (of late) been a lot of clamour that films are not being released in time. But we just pointed out that we have this leeway of 68 days, because many times people come and say ‘I have to release my film tomorrow or day after’ when they have applied today!”
“We have a huge number of applications, and there’s a huge backlog, especially in Mumbai. We have to then tell these makers that we cannot do it out of turn, because then, others will get affected.”
Lets see when we get to see this epic period film!
