Will ‘Padmavati’ release as per the schedule?

Few months ago, Sanjay Leela Bhansali announced his next directorial titled ‘Padmavati’, one more period love story after his magnum opus ‘Bajirao Mastani’. The release date of the film was also announced. It is slated to release on December 15, 2017. However, we wonder if the film will release as per the schedule.

Principle photography of SLB’s ‘Bajirao Mastani’ had started in September 2014, which means around 15 months before the film had released. The movie was surely a masterpiece made by the director. But of course we cannot ignore the fact that the filmmaker took a long time to make the film, and one can always expect some hurdles and unforeseen consequences while making a big film. For example, Ranveer Singh was injured while shooting the war sequences of the film. ‘Bajirao Mastani’ was made with a budget of Rs 120 crore and it took such a long time to be made.

Now SLB is all set for ‘Padmavati’ which is based on Rani Padmavati, Sultan Alauddin Khilji and Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. The movie is said to be made with a budget of Rs 190 crore which means it will be grander than ‘Bajirao Mastani’. While in September 2014, the principle photography of ‘Bajirao Mastani’ had started 15 months before the film released, when it comes to ‘Padmavati’ till date even the official announcement of the cast is not yet made. Yes, we agree that sources have confirmed that Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh will be playing the lead roles in the film, but the makers have not yet officially made an announcement. In one of the studios of Mumbai, even a set is being erected, but making a big film is a big task, because of which we feel that ‘Padmavati’ might not release as per the schedule.
