The Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial film ‘Padmavati’ has been cleared by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) for the UK audience for release without a single cut. The film received clearance for release in the UK for December 1 release date. However, it is expected that the makers may not release the film in the country before it comes out in India and the makers also gave a sign to this regard.
The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has given the film 12 A rating and the film was passed without any cuts. In 12 A rating, it means a child under the age of 12 needs to be accompanied by adults to watch the film. Stating, ‘“Padmavati” (12 A) moderate violence, injury detail”, the British Censor Board has listed the film on its official site. They also added that “all known versions of this work passed uncut”. The Bhansali’s film has been receiving rage from various Rajput groups and political leaders, who have been criticizing Bhansali for playing with history.
As the rumors surfaced that there was a romantic dream sequence between Rajput queen Padmini and Allauddin Khilji. Bhansali, on the other hand, in an appeal cleared that there was no such scene in the film and it was merely a rumor. The film was earlier expected to release on December 1, but it has been postponed by the makers until further notice.
