Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has been in the news but for all the wrong reasons. First, there were casting issues in the film as the makers were not able to find the third lead beside Ranveer and Deepika. The film is also in the troubles due to the threats by Rajput community. And the latest we hear that there are budget issues and stars will not be available for shoot due to their other commitments. SLB planned to wrap up filming in time for Cannes 2017 but now that won’t be possible.


Now there are reports that film will not be releasing next year and will be postponed to 2018. and they are planning to release it either in Summer or in December. Padmavati is one of the most expensive films made in Bollywood as the budget will be around 150 crore and needs a festival release. Eid 2018 slot is still empty however this date is generally associated with Salman Khan. If Padmavati is released in December, this would set up another clash between Bhansali and Shahrukh Khan whose dwarf project will be releasing in the same period.

Interesting both films were earlier announced to release December 2017. However SRK postponed his film to 2018 and a few days later Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai was announced for December 2017 release.


  1. Padmavati latak gya…..
    Kya yaar Bollywood arena fake news banate ho ki Christmas 2017 nhi ab 2018 mein release hoga…..
    Site se interest jaa rha hai…….

  2. Bhansali this time ur movie will be disaster.
    Bcz u r clashing with srk’s most ambitious project.

  3. Bhansali tu kya cheez hai prdp ke time pe world ka bada franchaies james bond release nahi kar paya.avoid rajini & srk clash with sultan tu our kuch bolna padega?
    True mega stardom SK

  4. Hmm I think it will be very selfish if salman claims eid and Christmas. That is not possible. He can’t claim 2 holidays in one year. Salman should think about that.

  5. I think this is the best decision for Padmavati, because even if it release 1 week before or after TZH, it will be Suicidal for SLB, because TZH is way big movie and according to the source it will be the biggest action movie of Bollywood…..And if we actually believe in inside report then it will be the Jason Bourne of Indian movie…

    Secondly Srk is not a big star anymore, that’s why everyone is ready to clash with him……And if we look in past also Srk was never a big star, he always face clashes even in his golden phase (2002-2008)…..No one actually scared from Srk stardom, even in his good phase, and the reason for this is that Srk never give big grosser in his life like Salman Khan….He was consistent in BO, but only giving in Average movies and at max Hit, and hardly gives Blockbusters…..In his best phase of (2002-2008) he manage to gives only 3 Blockbusters and zero ATBB….You can also check this in his Filmography……That’s why no one scare from him and always ready to clash with him…..

    On the other hand if we look at Salman’s career, he also face so many clashes but that all in his Worst Phase, but now in this decade (In his Golden Phase) no one dare to clash with him, because he is not only consistent in give successful movies, but he is delivering Back to Back Blockbuster……Till now out of 10 movies he gives 8 Blockbusters or better, 1 Superhit and 1 Semi-hit…..This is phenomenal achievement and that’s why no one dare to clash with him….

    I know that Srk fans will not like my this comment but this is reality and if you think about it with cool mind then you also agree with me…..
