Padmaavat: Know the changes suggested by CBFC

Padmaavat's release date was postponed after several Rajput outfits claimed that the film has historical inaccuracies and it allegedly portrays a romantic sequence between Rani Padmini (Deepika Padukone) and Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh), which director Sanjay Leela Bhansali denied.

According to a release issued by the CBFC, the board had a meeting of their examining committee on December 28 and made a decision to give the film a "UA certification along with some modifications and likely change of the film's title on the basis the attributed material/creative source". The committee made by the CBFC watched the movie and said the movie was vulgar and the facts were distorted. The disclaimer before any film says that this film is a work of fiction and one of the fundamental human rights is the right to freedom of expression.

While the makers have accepted the name change, they maintain that the rumour about the film having 300 cuts is untrue.

- Modifications to the incorrect/misleading reference to historical places. "Addition of a disclaimer which clearly makes the point that the film in no manner subscribes to the practice of Sati or seeks to glorify it", the statement said.

In the case of Udta Punjab, producers Ekta Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap went to the Bombay High Court to get their film cleared (only a few minor cuts were imposed), but that's not the case with Padmavat, whose delay has already cost a significant amount to producers Viacom Motion Pictures. We believe that these changes are in line with the filmic depiction of the story we wanted to tell.

Padmavat, which was set to release on December 1st, will be released on January 25th.

The Shree Rajput Karni Sena on Wednesday asserted that it will not reach a compromise with the makers of Padmavaat, and called for a "janata curfew" whenever the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial is released. It has been at the centre of controversies for past one year, ever since Bhansali began shooting in January last year in Jaipur.

This Bollywood period drama is based on the epic 16th-century poem "Padmavat" by Malik Mohammed Jaisi.
