However, even if the producers of Padmavati got a favourable order from the apex court against Sharma's new plea and also received a nod from the Indian censor board for the movie's release, they may still not be out of the woods.

Lawyer, M L Sharma mentioned the fresh plea for an urgent hearing has been presented and he has also alleged that the grave damage will be done to the social harmony if the movie was allowed to release outside the India.

The final copy of the film submitted to BBFC states that the duration of "Padmavati" is 164 minutes and is scheduled for release on 1st December 2017. Given the sheer volume of films that Bollywood is churning out every month, there is a paucity of release dates. On Thursday, Bhansali's film got the certificate for the release in the United Kingdom, but now a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court against it.


Ace director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's historical film "Padmavati" has been made with a whopping Rs 170 Cr budget. He told that the filmmakers have tampered with the facts by saying that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has given the songs and promos for the film. The court will hear an advocate's plea against the release of the movie in the foreign countries on Tuesday, November 28. Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali "s film 'Padmavati" is not taking the name of the shortage of problems.

The movie that features Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor is distributed internationally by Paramount Pictures.
