Mumbai: Sanjay Leela Bhansali's controversial Hindi film "Padmavati", which stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, will release on January 25 as "Padmavat".

"It will release as 'Padmavat' on January 25. The film has got U/A certificate," sources at Viacom18 Motion Pictures told IANS.

"Padmavati" -- now "Padmavat" -- was earlier slated for release on December 1 but got stuck after the Karni Sena claimed it distorted historical facts related to the Rajput community.
