'PadMan' will release on schedule, likely clash with 'Padmavati'

"Padmavat" will clash with R Balki's Akshay Kumar-starrer "Pad Man" which will also release on January 26 unless there is a last minute change. Also, Anushka Sharma's home production film Pari is also scheduled to release on February 9. "The certified runtime of the Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor starrer is two hours and 43 minutes (163 minutes)", a source close to the development told the Mumbai Mirror.

Besides Joshi, the meeting was also attended by regular examining committee members, along with other censor board officials.

The special panel included Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Dr Chandramani Singh and professor K K Singh of the Jaipur University.

The blaze is so violent that they demanded the removal of newly appointed CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi and to imprison Sanjay Leela Bhansali for portraying the Rajput queen, Rani Padmavati in a supposed negative light.

"On Friday, the Central Bureau of Film Certification (CBFC) granted Padmavat a U/A certification".

The certificate as per procedure will be issued once the required modifications are carried out and final material is submitted.

Karni Sena's national president Sukdev Singh Gogamedi said that the CBFC and the Bharatiya Janata Party government at the Centre will be "solely responsible for the consequences" if the film is released, according to The Times of India.

He, however, said his stand is "very clear, which is known to everyone". But owing to massive protests and threats from the Rajput outfits, and some objections from the censor board, the film's release date was pushed for indefinite period.

He said that he will continue to protest against Padmavati in democratic manner.

Seems like things are finally looking up for the filmmakers and cast of the film. Although the release date of Padmavat is not confirmed yet, things will not be easy for the film as the competition is tough and there is no certainty over how many states will let Padmavat release in theatres.
