Padmavati Release Row : Sanjay Leela Bhansali agrees to change name to Padmavat

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

According to a release issued by the CBFC, the board had a meeting of their examining committee on December 28 and chose to give the film a "U/A certification along with some modifications and likely change of the film's title on the basis the attributed material/creative source".

The film, based on the life of Rajput queen Padmini, has run into trouble with Rajput groups alleging that it distorts history.

Joshi reportedly said that filmmakers had agreed to the CBFC's suggestions, but no official comment was issued by Viacom18. The movie has been given a UA certificate.Film Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali had earlier said that the movie was based on the 16th-century epic poem "Padmavat" by Malik Muhammad Jayasi. The films title is likely to change to Padmavat and minor changes are also demanded in controversial song Ghoomar.

CBFC had also approached three erstwhile rulers, Raghuveer Singh of Sirohi, Maharawal Jagmal Singh of Banswara and Vishwaraj Singh Mewar, for their expert views on the film. The board has suggested five modifications to the film including a change in the title to "Padmavat" - and will issue the certificate once the modifications are made. It consisted of the regular committee members, along with CBFC officials and a special advisory panel in presence of Chairman Prasoon Joshi. "Panel member had insights and also some reservations regarding claimed historical events and socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length".


"We had given a whole list of objections regarding the movie", Ajit Singh, president of Rajput Karni Sena, told Reuters.

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.

Vishvaraj also mentioned that he earlier wrote a letter on December 22 stating, "The fact remains that my questions are relevant for every member of the proposed committee and without resolving the same, the committee's findings shall remain a mirage". "Though visually stunning they leave a disturbing impact.They've asked for some shots to be altered", says a source.

Modifications in the song "Ghoomar" to make the depiction befitting the character being portrayed.
