Today, a lot of newspapers published a full front page advertisement of ‘Padmaavat’ listing a bunch of disclaimers before appealing the audience to watch it.

Padmaavat advertisement in Bombay Times

“Padmavaat is a film that every Indian will be proud of,” the advertisement states at the end.

It’s 2018 and creative directors still have no actual creative freedom and they have to JUSTIFY a work of art in a democratic country like India.

“We are grateful to the government authorities.”

People on Twitter are pointing out how problematic this is.

They are only clipping the wings of creativity.

These are all the disclaimers listed by the makers of Padmaavat:

* The film ‘Padmaavat’ is based on the epic ‘Padmavat’ by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi which is a revered work of fiction.

* The film does not have and never had a dream sequence between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati.

* We have made this film as an ode to the famed valour, legacy and courage of Rajputs.

* The film portrays Rani Padmavati with the utmost respect and does not tarnish her repute or misrepresent her character in any manner.

* The film has been cleared with only five modifications by the CBFC and is officially approved for release in India with a U/A certificate.

* There are no further cuts or modifications to the film.

* We are grateful to the government authorities, CBFC, film fraternity and our fans for their support.




They also released a new trailer for Padmavaat last night.

It’s set to release on 25th January.
