‘Padmavati’ 3D version to be out soon; heres more on what happened
Amid all the controversy over ‘Padmavati’, the magnum opus of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Viacom 18, the director has submitted a new application on 29 November.
The period drama was shot in 2D, but the filmmakers decided to convert it to 3D after positive feedback on the 3D trailer, it is learnt.
“When there is simultaneous release of 2D and 3D versions, we only certify the 3D part,” a CBFC source added.
According to CBFC insiders, the board is yet to scrutinise the application. Only after that will it see the film.
The filmmakers have submitted three applications, including the latest 3D one, to the Censor Board. The first was returned because there was no disclaimer. A formal decision on the second application is still pending with the board.>
