Deepika-Ranveer starrer Padmavati to release on Nov 17 as per schedule
Viacom 18, which is one of the producers of Padmavati, has refuted reports that the film's release date has been pushed to 2018, saying the period drama will hit the theatres as per schedule.
There were reports that Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed movie has been shifted to next year after its sets were vandalised twice in Jaipur and Kolhapur, respectively.
"Padmavati is not postponed. Not shifting to 2018 either. It will release on November 17, 2017," Viacom 18 Motion Pictures said in a statement.
On January 27, Bhansali was slapped, roughed up and his film set vandalised by Karni Sena activists in a Jaipur fort for alleged distortions in the film script.
The film stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
