Ever since Sanjay Leela Bhansali announced his most ambitious project PADMAAVAT (earlier titled PADMAVATI) there has been a sense of awe and curiosity among one section of the society and anger among the other.

The film's screenings have already been banned in the neighbouring states like Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. "I want the film to be screened in theatres", said Thakur. "We have heard that it is releasing on January 25 and if so happens we will take to streets and appeal our youths to hold public curfew at cinema halls", Lokendra Singh Kalvi had said at a press conference.

Recently, while interacting with Hindustan Times, Twinkle expressed her disappointment over Padmaavat & Padman clash. Due to controversies, Padmaavat has created a lot of curiosity amongst the audiences and everyone knows that Akshay Kumar is a box-office magnet right now.

"Real cities are mentioned but their geographical and historical accuracy is questionable in the film.Some of these places mentioned did not exist during the 14 century.So we've asked for disclaimer regarding the use of names of places".

Arequipa Governor Yamila Osorio said on Twitter that one 55-year old man died in the town of Yauca after being crushed by rock. The threat of a tsunami was ruled out by the Peruvian navy and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Hawaii.

"The film does not have and never had a dream sequence between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati", the advertisement stated. The movie was previously slated for a release on December 1, 2017, which got deferred.

The movie's title has been changed from Padmavati to Padmaavat, possibly to reflect the fact it is based on the work. The makers also stated that they have made the film as an ode to the famed valour, legacy and courage of Rajputs.

In a statement, the makers of the film said that "Padmaavat" is the first Indian film that will have a global IMAX 3D release.

On December 28, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had an examining committee meeting to review Padmavati and it chose to give the film a U/A certificate on condition that some modifications are made and the title likely changed to Padmavat.
