Earlier this week, the Supreme Court had allowed a country-wide release of the controversial movie on January 25. The release of the film was delayed as it was protested by the Rajput community and others across the country for showing Queen Padmavati in low light. Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’ starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh will finally be released on January 25.
