The Chief Minister of Haryana, Manohar Lal Khattar has made it clear that the decision to screen Padmaavat in Haryana would be made only after viewing the film.

The screening of Padmaavat has been banned in the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. The reason cited for the above mentioned ban was the maintenance of law and order.

In Uttar Pradesh, CM Yogi Adhyanath remains reserved on permitting the screening of Padmavati.

Meanwhile the makers of Padmaavat issued a new full-page advertisement on newspapers. Seven declarations and clarifications have been made by the makers to invalidate rumors surrounding the movie.

This advertisement comes a day after Bhansali Pictures and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures officially announced that the movie will be released on 25th January after a few modifications by Central Board of Film Certification.

The declaration states that the film ‘Padmaavat’ is based on the epic ‘Padmavat’ by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi which is a revered work of fiction. Also, that the film was made as an ode to the famed valor, legacy and courage of Rajputs.

The ad maintains that the portrayal of Rani Padmavati is done with utmost respect and does not tarnish her repute or misrepresent her character in any manner.

The declaration refutes the rumor surrounding the dream sequence between Allaudin Khilji and Rani Padmavati by stating that the film does not and never had a dream sequence.

The back page of the ad features an image of Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati.
