Sanjay Leela Bhansali's latest period film 'Padmaavat' is slated for release on January 25 after getting clearance from the censor board. Except for minor cuts in the five places and the title change, Bhansali had some relief with the censor board. Supreme Court also removed the ban imposed by four states on the release of 'Padmaavat'.
But Rajput Karni Sena was adamant in their stand that they will not allow the release of the film. The protests were also continuing against 'Padmaavat' in several places. In a recent development, Karni Sena chief Lokendra Singh Kalvi said that they are open to watching 'Padmaavat' as requested by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. 'Padmaavat' director written a letter to Karni Sena chief earlier to watch the film before the release and if they have any serious objections, they will edit those scenes from the film.
Karni Sena chief put a condition that he will watch the film with three censor board members... three selected journalists. Bhansali team agreed to his condition and they are arranging a special screening for them. All hurdles will be cleared for Bhansali team once they watch the film and release a press note.
