Sanjay Leela Bhansali's period drama officially named as Padmaavat

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), headed by Prasoon Joshi, recently cleared Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat with a U/A certificate, after various changes and cuts were made, including the change of title from Padmavati. The film before getting embroiled in controversies was scheduled to release on December 1.The makers have changed the name on all social media sites, namely Twitter and Instagram, and are expected to change the same in the official poster, trailer and released songs as well. The committee made by the CBFC watched the movie and said the movie was vulgar and the facts were distorted.

Karni Sena workers claim that changing the name of the film doesn't suffice.

The CBFC had suggested five changes in the film including the changing of title and putting additional disclaimers. These modifications have tried to incorporate observations and suggestions given by the advisory panel and also in keeping with the sentiments of society.

- Modifications to the incorrect/misleading reference to historical places.

The modification includes changing the disclaimer that the movie does not claim historical accuracy and added that the movie does not subscribe to the Sati system practice. We believe that these changes are in line with the filmic depiction of the story we wanted to tell.

Meanwhile, it was being reported that not five, but CBFC has suggested some 300 cuts to the film. "We have full faith in the CBFC and in the transparent, fair and inclusive process that has been followed", it said. However, political parties and Hindu groups are not happy with the censor board's green signal to the film.

He also called for a "janata curfew" when the movie is released.

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

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat" will not be banned in Uttar Pradesh despite threats from the Karni Sena to disrupt the release on 25th January 2018. The historians were astonished whether Padmini actually existed.
