Due to the protest by Karni Sena, Padmavati’s release has been stalled in India, but it looks like the movie will be releasing on its original release date – 1st December in Britain. Is this true?
According to reports, the magnum opus, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor, will release in the UK on December 1 and the film has reportedly been given a yes by the British Board of Film Classification.

But we, UrbanAsian spoke to Sarfaraz Merchant from Viacom 18 about the release in UK. To this Sarfaraz said:
“Padmavati is not releasing on 1st December in UK. The release date is unconfirmed.”
The makers had also asked the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to expedite the certification process for the film, but the request was turned down.
The Sri Rajput Karni Sena has been adamant that he won’t allow the film to be released in India even if any changes are made.
Yesterday at a press conference held in Delhi by the Karni Sena, this is what they said:
“My party members and I are totally against the film Padmavati’s release. Even after the changes, we will not allow it to hit the theatres. We will come out on the streets along with other social organizations and protest against it if it gets a release date.”
Also, governments of several states – Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh – have said that they might ban the movie in these states.
Well, let us hope that the movie releases soon.
