People Are Pointing Out A Serious Problem With Padmaavat’s Front Page Ad In Bombay Times

This movie has been in the news since the time it was announced. Never has a film been related to so many threats directed at its leading cast. Yesterday, the makers re-released the trailer of Padmaavat and in today’s Bombay Times, they placed a front-page advertisement to promote the movie. But more than the promotion it had listed disclaimers clarifying that it never had a dream sequence featuring Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati and that it is a movie every Indian will be proud of.

Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures — officially announced that the film will hit the screens on January 25 with due modifications suggested by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).

Padmaavat’ is a film that every India will be proud of. Please visit your nearest theatre on January 25 to experience it yourself,” the makers have stated at the end of the ad.

The following are the points clarified by the makers of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial:

* 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 valour, 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.

But Twitter couldn’t handle the way a creative director had to publish this as an advertisement in a democratic country.
