After braving all odds, 'Padmaavat' hit the screens on January 25, 2018, and managed to have preview shows days ahead of the nationwide release at some places.
'Padmaavat' faced massive protests from certain fringe groups across the nation, demanding a pan India ban on the period drama.
The film was initially scheduled to hit the screens on December 1, 2017. It stars Deepika Padukone in the titular role of Rani Padmavati while Shahid Kapoor plays her on-screen husband Maharawal Ratan Singh.
Ranveer Singh plays Alauddin Khilji in the period drama respectively. The film is based on the epic poem 'Padmavat' which was written in 1540 by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi.
This is Deepika and Ranveer's third collaboration with the filmmaker after 'Ram-Leela' and 'Bajirao Mastani' while Shahid's first one.
