What? Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati And Salman Khan’s Tiger Zinda Hai To Get DELAYED

CBFC is doubtful about releasing Padmavati and Tiger Zinda Hai

Bollywood fans are right now braced up for two big releases of the year- Padmavati and Tiger Zinda Hai. Deepika Padukone starrer Padmavati is right now amid the controversies and whether it will release on the said date ie December 1 is a huge question mark. However, while Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif are promoting Tiger Zinda Hai in full swing, it might get delayed! As reported in Pinkvilla, Padmavati might not release on December 1 and Tiger Zinda Hai might not release on December 22 as promised. Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) finds it doubtful to release the films on release date.

A trade source told the portal, “Apparently, the CBFC has used Rule 41 of the Cinematograph Act, 1952 which states that the total time limit of getting a film censored requires 68 days. There is a process involved which begins from the scrutiny of applications, formation of examining committee, forwarding the EC report to Chairman, communication of the order to the applicant, surrender of cuts by the producer, examination of cuts to the issue of certificate. The producers who have applied for the censor certificates of their films have to go through this process now. If you go by that rule, it will surely mean the delay in the release dates of films like Firangi, Padman.”

“The producers who have applied for the censor certificates of their films have to go through this process now. If you go by that rule, it will surely mean the delay in the release dates of films like Firangi, Padmavati and Tiger Zinda Hai and none of them will get a censor certificate till January, 2018, “says the source.

The source added, “Recently, when Padmavati’s application for a censor certificate had come up for review, it was sent back as the paperwork was incomplete. Firangi has recently applied for a censor certificate while Tiger Zinda Hai is yet to apply. But everyone is choosing to keep a tight-lipped silence as nobody knows what’s going on.” Well, now the fate of the films is in the hands of the certification board.
