Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor starrer Padmavati has been the talk of the town ever since its announcement. But the film got constantly delayed as it faced a lot of trouble during its shooting.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali wanted to release the film on November 17, but now the film has been postponed and it will now release in February 2018.
A close source to the film said “SLB had an October 20 deadline, which is impossible to meet now. The workers’ strike took away a few important days. Meanwhile, two of the principal actors — Deepika and Shahid — also had free dates, so they took off on vacations. A lot of the shoot is still left. The major chunk may have been shot, but some big action sequences are still left. Ranveer’s portions as the young Alauddin Khilji, too, remain to be shot.”
Well, this also looks like a good decision as apart from Anushka Sharma‘s Pari, February 2018 will not see any big releases.
Stay tuned for more updates.
