Just a day after it was officially announced that Padmaavat will hit the screens on January 25, the producers had come up with a full-page ad on newspapers, clarifying certain things about the movie.
The front-page advertisement had disclaimers, stating that the movie does not have and never had, a dream sequence between Alauddin Khilji and Rani Padmavati, among others.
The producers Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures have urged people to watch the movie, saying that they would be really proud of it.
These are the disclaimers on the advertisement:
* 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 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.
It's a sad day when a movie poster spends less time talking about the movie, and more convincing people not to get offended by it.
