Padmaavat my homage to Rajput valour and vigour: Bhansali

Sanjay Leela Bhansali on Sunday said that his much-awaited directorial venture Padmaavat is his tribute to the glorious stories of Rajput "honour, valour and vigour".

"'Padmaavat' is a dream come true for me. I have always been fascinated by the stories of honour, valour and vigour of our great Rajput warriors that have been captured so beautifully in our literature and this movie is my homage to those glorious stories," Bhansali said in a statement.

During the country-wide protests against the film, many members from the industry came forward to support the filmmaker and the cast.

In his statement, Bhansali also thanked the fraternity for their unwavering support.

"I would also like to thank the entire film fraternity for supporting Viacom18 and Bhansali Productions through the entire production and pre-release phase and hope they like the film they so supported," he said.

Viacom18 Motion Pictures, the makers Padmaavat, on Sunday announced that the film will hit the screens on January 25 in  Hindi, Telugu and Tamil.

According to the release, it is the first Indian film that will be globally released in IMAX 3D format. The censor board had cleared the movie with a U/A certificate.
