Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat was cleared for release in Pakistan on Wednesday. The film was given U certificate by the censor board.

“Padmaavat has been declared fit for public exhibition in the cinema houses without any excision by Central Board of Film Censors (CBFC),” Mobashir Hasan told IANS via social media from Islamabad. According to some distributors in Pakistan, there were apprehensions over the movie given the negative portrayal of Alauddin Khilji.

Asked about it, Hasan said, “CBFC isn’t biased in arts, creativity and healthy entertainment. A co-opted member has no voting rights. They are for expert opinion,” Hasan explained. Padmaavat is set for a worldwide release on Thursday.

Satish Reddy, Chairman, Eveready Group of Companies, a key film distributor in Pakistan, told IANS that Padmaavat should have a “very strong” response in its first week.

In India, the film has been struggling to get a safe release due to the protests from some Rajput outfits. Shri Rajput Karni Sena activists have been staging violent protests across some parts of the country to stop the film’s release.

    Problems with bhansali films..they are very gorgeous bt the story lacks depth..his films’ costumes get more attention than story
    If noticed then there is a big difference between jodha akbar and bhansali’s ram leela,bm,padmavaat..
    I hoped ashutosh gowariker makes more like swades laggan or jodha akbar..slb lacks in story telling..
    Making films on grand scale doesn’t mean it will be good..i have found most of his films boring except hddk
