The letter ‘I’ was all that stood between historical accuracy and disrespecting the ‘maan’ and ‘sanmaan’ of a great Queen of fiction as the Padmavati saga will finally find release, not conclusion on 25th January. Also, Padmavati is now Padmavat.
OMG the Republic Day weekend is all set to go CRAZY with not one, not two but three big budget, A lister packed projects set to hit the screens! Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ill fated dream project will now clash with Akshay Kumar starrer PadMan, and Neeraj Pandey’s multi starrer, Aiyaari. Twitter on the other hand is not even concerned about what to watch, as first and foremost they had to make fun of the fact that Padmavati is now Padmavat.
Within minutes of the official reports revealing the release date for Padmavat, Twitter users went berserk as the film has already received a blockbuster opening of jokes and one liners on the microblogging platform.
Social Ketchup brings you some of the best rib ticklers and one liners around Padmavat, which sounds like a completely different film that the audience will not be able to tell the difference AT ALL.
#Padmavat will clash with #Padman. So basically it's – a Period Movie vs a Movie on Periods.

After the #Padmavat verdict,
SRK named his movie #ZERO so that the censor board cannot add, subtract, multiply, divide. Anything from the title.

India is a rare Social Science experiment where:
– History is learnt from Movies
– Geography is decided by Language
– Civics is based on Religion & Caste#Padmavati #Padmavat

Rajputs: "Can we cut their heads?"
Rajputs: "What about their noses?"
Rajputs: "Can we gouge their eyes out?"
CBFC: "No that's too much."
Rajputs: "Um, how about we remove one eye?"

All those offended with #Padmavati becoming #Padmavat, at least now you know how we feel when people call #Kannada as #Kannad ?
