It is not easy to make a historical film and meet the deadline. Like many period films, Bollywood’s Baahubali ‘Padmavati’ featuring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the lead roles is said to be postponed to a later date, probably in February, next year.
There seem to be several reasons for the postponement. The main reason is a delay in the shooting after the controversy with the Rajputs in Rajasthan and the film is yet to wrap up shooting some crucial scenes. The dates of the lead actors aren’t available according to some reports from Bollywood sources.
Then, the post production work would need a major chunk of time to get the desired output for the period film. However, the COO of ‘Viacom 18’ puts an end to the rumours which means that the film might come in time as expected. However, there is no official confirmation, if this Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period drama will come this year or will be postponed to the next year.
