Padmavati: CBFC Finally Certifies The Film, But Only On These Conditions Including Changing The Title!

Padmavati Should Lose A Letter To Get U  A

The censor board's certificate will be issued once these changes are made and the movie re-examined.

Joshi was present along with the examining committee members and the special panel, which comprised Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Chandramani Singh and Professor K.K. Singh of the Jaipur University.

Following much controversy relating to the film's release, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has issued a U/A certificate to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati. Rajput groups were angry that the movie allegedly contained a romantic scene between the queen and Khilji, who had attacked the Mewar capital of Chittorgarh. Meanwhile the director of the film has agreed to make the changes suggested by the board.

Bhansali, who appeared before a parliamentary panel, has said the 190-crore budget film is based on the 16th century epic poem "Padmavat" by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The film was also asked to give a few disclaimers - one of them regarding not glorifying the practice of Sati and also relevant modifications in the song "Ghoomar" to befit the character portrayed, a CBFC statement said.

It was initially supposed to be released on 1st December, however, the release date was postponed for an uncertain time.

Right from the shooting of the film till the release of its trailer and a song, the Rajput body has alleged that there are two elements in the film which have no historical record.

He also said that cosmetic changes like changing the title of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film from "Padmavati" to "Padmavat" would not change the facts.

The film stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. "Panel member had insights and also some reservations regarding claimed historical events and socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", NDTV reported citing a board official. "Though visually stunning they leave a disturbing impact.They've asked for some shots to be altered", says a source.

Karni Sena has been spearheading the nationwide protests against the screening of the film. "Members of the committee formed to review the film have opposed it but the censor board is taking this decision due to underworld pressure". In March, unidentified people vandalised the movie sets in Maharashtra's Kolhapur district.
