Right from the beginning of the year, the film Padmavati was marred with controversies. While the sets of the film was vandalised and set on fire in Kolhapur in March, many extremist groups and people protested against the release of the film, fearing it will show the Rajputs in a bad light. While the epic drama film by Sanjay Leela Bhansali is based on a poem by 16th century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi on a Rajput queen, many members of the Rajput community have gone all out to ensure the film is indefinitely postponed.
From threats to cut Deepika Padukone’s nose off, calling her a “nachne wali” to alleging that underworld don Dawood Ibrahim has produced the film, Padmavati has continued to be in troubled waters. Now, with its release postponed to January 2018, the buzz around the film is far from ceasing. Amidst all the debates and heated discussions around its new release date, people on the Internet, especially Twitter, are managing to sneak in a joke or two as well.
Some of the wittiest one-liners that people have come up with are when they compared the delay in its release to other relatable events of our lives. For instance: “Release of #Padmavati postponed to next year. Same like our new year resolutions,” “Padmavati’s release has been postponed to next year. Just like everyone’s Goa plans,” etc. are some of them.

Sad to see such extreme reactions from the audience towards #Padmavati . Proud to say that my movies never generate such hatred. Maybe because they don’t have an audience in the first place.

At this point, the producers of Padmavati should do the right thing, and leak the movie.

Padmavati pushed to 2018. Looks like Karni Sena has great new year plans.

*पद्मावती को रिलीज नहीं होने देना चाहिए•••*
जिस रानी पद्मिनी को
अलाउद्दीन खिलजी जैसा
मुगल सम्राट नहीं देख पाया
उसे असलम पंचरवाला
150/- रुपये में देखले,
ये कतई मंजूर नहीं…
1 MONTH TO TIGER ZINDA HAI
