CBFC wants the Padmavati title to be modified as Padmavat

CBFC wants the Padmavati title to be modified as Padmavat”

Source at the censor board said that the makers of "Padmavati" had "unnecessarily complicated its case" with an ambiguous disclaimer in its application for certification which stated that the film was partially based on historical facts.

The special panel that watched the film along with the examining commitee of the CBFC consisted of a royal, Arvind Singh from Udaipur and historians Dr Chandramani Singh and Prof KK Singh of the Jaipur University.

The Censor Board has chose to give Padmavati - at the centre of a huge controversy and violent protests - a UA (universal adult) certificate, and suggested five modifications, including changing the film's title to Padmavat. Though the producers have not issued a statement yet, a senior executive at Viacom 18, which has produced the film, told Mirror that Bhansali and the banner will adhere to the suggested alterations and the editing of the film will commence immediately.

Bhansali, who appeared before a parliamentary panel, has said his lavishly mounted 150crore period drama, featuring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, is based on the 16th century epic poem "Padmavat" by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The CBFC suggested to change the name to Padmavat.

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

Other outfits such as the Rajput Sabha and Rashtriya Rajput Karni Sena announced they would not let theatres screen the film even with the changes.

He said a special panel was set up "considering the complexities and concerns around the film" and "to add perspective to the final decision of the CBFC official committee". The outrage sparked off following the rumour of dream sequence between Rani Padmini and Alauddin Khilji broke out. "Panel member had insights & also some reservations regarding claimed historical events & socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", it added.

The Shri Rajput Karni Sena, a fringe outfit that made dire threats against the film's cast and disrupted shooting in January, reacted with caution to the censor board's decision.

Rajput groups object to the Ghoomar song, alleging that it portrays Padmavati in a courtesan-like manner.
