- The film did not release in two Indian states
""Padmaavat" is a historic film for our country. I'm overwhelmed and extremely happy that the film has received this much love from audiences not just in India, but also the world over," he added.
Ranveer thanks director Bhansali for his vision, and for giving him a character like Alauddin Khilji - the antagonist of "Padmaavat." He told IANS: "This success is for all of us to cherish and remember that as artistes, we need to stand by our vision, our craft."
"Padmaavat" is based on Malik Muhammad Jayasi's ballad of the same name, which narrates the story of Rani Padmini of Chittor. "Padmaavat" features Deepika Padukone as Padmavati, who performs jauhar along with hundreds of Rajput women, after Alauddin Khilji breeches the fort of Chittor.
"Padmaavat" released on January 26, more than a month after its initial scheduled release.
