Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ is scheduled to hit theatres on December 1, amid several controversies and threats to stall its release. However, according to reports doing the rounds online, the film has still to be sent to the Central Board of Film Certification. According to the report, the film had to be sent 68 days before its release. However, director Bhansali has yet to go about with the formalities in order to get a scheduled release.
According to a CBFC spokesman, the films are reportedly not sent on time leading to undue pressure and unfair criticism of the board which has too little time to certify the application.
