Last week there was talk that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh is all set to hit screens on January 25 alongside Akshay Kumar’s PadMan. Though there was talk, the makers hadn’t made an official announcement on their film’s release date until yesterday. Apart from this, the makers also revealed the change in the film’s title after getting a go-ahead from the CBFC. Padmavati is now Padmaavat as suggested by the certification board. After announcing the official release date of the film yesterday, the makers of the period film have made a few clarifications about it which will hopefully put an end to all the drama around the film.

The makers of Padmaavat also clarified that the film does not have a dream sequence between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati. The makers also stated that they have made the film as an ode to the famed valour, legacy and courage of Rajputs. Take a look at all the clarifications by the makers in the image below!

Sanjay Leela Bhansali was recently quoted saying, “Padmaavat is a dream come true for me. I have always been fascinated by the stories of honour, valour and vigour of our great Rajput warriors that have been captured so beautifully in our literature and this movie is my homage to those glorious stories. I would also like to thank the entire film fraternity for supporting Viacom18 and Bhansali Productions through the entire production and pre-release phase and hope they like the film they so supported.”
