- The new trailer was aired on Bigg Boss 11 grand finale
- Salman Khan also announced the release date on the show
- Padmaavat is releasing on January 25
Unlike the unabridged trailer, the newer one is more compact and begins with Ratan Rawal Singh's dialogue: "Chinta ko talwar ki nokh pe rakh jo wo Rajput. Reth ki nayo leke samundar se shart lagaye wo Rajput aur jiska sir kate par dhar phir bhi Rajout se ladta rahe, wo Rajput." After glimpses of the Rajput king preparing for war, the battleground and Alauddin Khilji's character, the trailer is rounded off with Rani Padmini saying: "Rajputi kangan mein utnihi dhaar hai jitni Rajputi Talwar mein."
This is how the makers announced Padmaavat's release date:

The new Padmaavat trailer was aired on Bigg Boss 11 indeed but this is what is available on the YouTube channel of Viacom18 Motion Pictures, who is in charge of distributing the film.
Padmaavat, which has recently been cleared by the Censor Board with five modifications, was earlier titled Padmavati. The release of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie (also starring Shahid Kapoor) was deferred following protests from several Rajput outfits, who objected to the movie alleging that Bhansali has distorted history.
Finally arriving on January 25, Padmaavat clashes with Akshay Kumar's PadMan.
