The year 2017 has been an eventful year for Bollywood. While this year saw several hit movies, Padmavati managed to create a lot of controversies. From threats of beheading to burning posters, the cast and the director of the movie had manage through all of them.

 

Recently, Karni Sena called for a nation-wide ban on this movie and several politicians are also pushing the same agenda. Shivraj Chouhan, Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, has already banned the movie from releasing in his state while many others have joined in the protest.

 

The director and producers of ‘Padmavati’ have decided to postpone the release date to an unannounced date. It is believed that they have taken this step keeping in mind the protests. However, the censor board has a different story to narrate.

According to the CEO of censor board, Anurag Srivastava, the movie did not receive the necessary certification. He said:

“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.”

 

There is a 68-day rule which asks all movies to send in their application 68 days before the release date. Clarifying more on this matter, Srivastava commented:
