Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial film Padmaavat is all set to hit the screens this Thursday at the box office. While the historical drama has received a huge thumbs-up from the audience because of its trailer and music, some self-vigilante group continues to create the hurdles for its release as they feel the film is distorting the history.
So it’s a great news for fans, that they can pre-book their tickets for the immensely awaited Padmaavat online or directly from the ticket window at nearby theater.

The film has opened well in both – multiplexes as well as single-screens.
Padmaavat has had a long history of trouble. It stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji. From being assaulted on the film’s set in Jaipur to the set being vandalised in Kolhapur to getting threats from detractors — Bhansali has been facing the ire of organisations that are up in arms against the period drama since its inception — from when it was titled Padmavati.
Months after facing opposition, the makers, Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures, clarified that the film was based on 16th century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi’s epic poem Padmavat, and does not distort historical facts — as was being alleged by some Rajput outfits.
Made on the whopping budget of around Rs 160 crore, the stakes are riding very high on this historical drama. Since the next big releases, Pad Man and Aiyaary are hitting the screens on February 9, Padmaavat has two open weeks to perform at the box office
