Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial Padmavati was finally submitted to the Central Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) on Friday, three weeks ahead of its scheduled December 1 release.

A source from the film’s team informs, “When it was decided just five weeks ahead of release that we would convert the film from its 2D format to 3D, we had to work round-the-clock with the technicians to beat the deadline. We were not allowed to submit a 2D version. We had to submit a 3D version to the CBFC, which we have done now.”

With the film finally getting there, the curtain finally falls on the spate of ugly unfounded controversies surrounding the film. Says a source from the CBFC, “Once the film is viewed, and if the fears of the protesters (mainly about a dream sequence featuring Rani Padmavati with her adversary Allauddin Khilji) prove unfounded, the film will be certified and be allowed to release on time.”
