LONDON: Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati has been put on hold in India; however, British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) cleared the movie for release without a single cut.
According to an Indian newspaper website, December 1 has been finalized for screening in Britain. The decision of the all-clear certification will buoy up the spirits of its makers who are faced with protests and serious threats back at home.
Passing the movie with a 12 A rating, the BBFC said that the film had “moderate violence and injury detail”.
The BBFC summarizes, “Padmavati is a Hindi language epic drama in which a Sultan leads an invasion to capture a Rajput queen.”
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s classic hit a major snag as the protesters claim the movie shows the Rajput queen Padmavati in a bad light. However, the filmmakers contradicted these claims.
