No ‘Padmavati’ release on Dec 1

Mumbai : The proposed release date of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s movie “Padmavati” has been deferred, the makers of the film said today.
Viacom18 Motion Pictures in a statement said it had taken the decision “voluntarily”. “Viacom18 Motion Pictures, the studio behind ‘Padmavati’, has voluntarily deferred the release date from December 1,” it said. The spokesman said it had the highest regard for the law of the land and statutory bodies such as the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). As a “responsible and law-abiding corporate citizen”, it was committed to following the established procedure and convention, it said. “We have faith that we will soon obtain the requisite clearances to release the film,” the statement read. Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi had yesterday slammed the makers for allowing the film to be screened for various media channels before obtaining a certificate from the board. The CBFC had sent the film back to the producer as the application for the certification was “incomplete”.
