Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati was supposed to release this month. The CBFC is yet to certify the film.
As reported by a leading daily, the ruling government is planning to involve prominent historians to review Padmavati. It is reported that that the Union Information and Broadcasting ministry has asked the Human Resource Development to help them with good historians that can review the film along with the CBFC panel.
Well, it is still unsure as to when the film will be reviewed.
Padmavati has been facing a flak since last few months as the Rajput Karni Sena and several politicians think that Bhansali has distorted historical facts in it.
Deepika and SLB even received death threats by some of the communities in the country. The two are given strict police protection since then.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali even went to the Parliament to clear that he has not distorted any history in the film.
Recently, while talking to a leading magazine, Shahid Kapoor, the lead of Padmavati was all praises for SLB. He stated, "I am in awe of him, for he has been relevant as a filmmaker for over 30 years. I told him that if he wanted me to do it, I would. And that was it. Beyond that, the journey of the film has been magical — extremely challenging, but also extremely magical!"
In an interview with a leading daily, when Ranveer Singh was asked about the controversy surrounding the film, he said, "It’s undoubtedly a very tough situation. I am most concerned about Sanjay sir. At this point, for him to go through all of this is extremely difficult considering the amount this man has suffered, sacrificed and [the way he] fought to make this film. What anybody else is going through can’t be compared to what he is experiencing. It’s a difficult situation for him to be embroiled in after the kind of love and sheer effort he has put into the film."
