A day after BJP-ruled state Gujarat put a ban on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmaavat’, the Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday gave a green signal to the magnum opus starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.

The CBFC has certified ‘Padmaavat’ for screening and the film is slated to release on January 25.

Gujarat No -Yogi yes to Padmavat

Earlier this week, Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje observed that Bhansali’s ‘Padmavat’ will not be allowed to hit theatres in the state.

On Friday, over 70 activists of the Rajasthan-based Karni Sena were detained in Mumbai while protesting outside the CBFC against the clearance given to Bhansali’s film which was earlier titled Padmavati.
