Padmavati in Paris! – While the entire plan is yet to be formulated, the Parisian release of Padmavati will be bigger than any previous Bollywood release
Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati will hit the screens in December. Padmavati, which was first performed as a stage play by SLB in Paris in 2008, will have a special release in Paris. While the entire plan is yet to be formulated, the Parisian release of Padmavati will be bigger than any previous Bollywood release. Says a source, “Devdas had one of the biggest ever releases in Paris for an Indian film. But Padmavati, which is a familiar tale to the Parisians, thanks to the opera staged in 2008, will be released on an even bigger scale.”
Earlier plans were to dub the film in French for the Paris release. But this move was seen to be detrimental to the mood and flavour of the film. Padmavati will now be released with French subtitles. Incidentally, Ranveer Singh, who plays the archvillain in the movie has a special affinity with the city after he shot Befikre there.
