In the country like India where the citizen has been given the Right to speech and Expression, a movie poster releases which is to urge people not to get offended by it instead of talking about the film.
We are talking about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmavati which is now Padmaavat. Due to protests, the film release date has been shifted to 25th January 2018 from 1 December 2017. And now the makers had come up with a full-page ad in newspapers to clarify certain things about the movie. It’s a disclaimer urging people nor to get offended by the film.
The disclaimers on the advertisement are:
The film ‘Padmaavat‘ is based on the epic ‘Padmavat’ by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi which is a revered work of fiction.
The film does not have and never had a dream sequence between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati.
We have made this film as an ode to the famed valor, legacy, and courage of Rajputs.
The film portrays Rani Padmavati with the utmost respect and does not tarnish her repute or misrepresent her character in any manner.
The film has been cleared with only five modifications by the CBFC and is officially approved for release in India with a U/A certificate.
There are no further cuts or modifications to the film.
We are grateful to the government authorities, CBFC, film fraternity and our fans for their support.
It’s really a sad act for the country where the filmmakers have to release a disclaimer before the release of the film.
