This will be the first-ever Indian film to have a Global IMAX 3D release. Trade analyst Ramesh Bala took to Twitter and announced, "@deepikapadukone 's #Padmaavat will be the 1st Indian movie to have a Global IMAX 3D release. @ParamountPics will release the movie outside India.. Dir #SLB."
The film will also be released in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu along with a U/A certificate. Bhansali in a statement said: "Padmaavat' is a dream come true for me. I have always been fascinated by the stories of honour, valour and vigour of our great Rajput warriors that have been captured so beautifully in our literature and this movie is my homage to those glorious stories. I would also like to thank the entire film fraternity for supporting Viacom18 and Bhansali Productions through the entire production and pre-release phase and hope they like the film they so supported."
Earlier, the Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions have said that the film is based on the 16th century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic poem "Padmavat". The film features Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh, Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji.
