The movie which was scheduled to release in December has been opposed due to its controversial content. Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor, the film was earlier opposed by Rajput Karni Sena for showing Queen Padmini in a bad light.
The release date for Padmavat has not been announced yet, however, we hope that 2018 will turn out to be great year for Sanjay Leela Bhansali with his much delayed movie releasing.
