Padmavati Now Padmavat, Cleared With 5 Changes Including A Song

CBFC's riders: 'Padmavat' instead of Padmavati and 26 changes

"This film was sidelined by the CBFC and it raises question on the Censor Board".

"Special panel consisted of Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Dr.Chandramani Singh & Prof K.K. Singh of Jaipur University".

After heated controversies before Gujarat elections, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has finally chose to give a go-ahead to Sanjay Leela Bansali directed film "Padmavati" - with a U/A certificate.

Members of hardline Hindu fringe groups as well as the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had criticized the film "Padmavati", accusing its director of distorting history by showing Muslim ruler Alauddin Khilji as the "lover" of Queen Padmavati, belonging to the Rajput Hindu warrior clan.

Joshi said these suggested changes "are completely in agreement with the filmmakers - the producers and director of the film". The story is narrated in poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic titled Padmavat, which was written in 1540.

Other key modifications suggested include disclaimers, particularly one regarding not glorifying the practice of sati and changes to the song "Ghoomar" to befit the character portrayed. However, the protest around the film grew more just ahead of its scheduled theatrical release on 1st December 2017.

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. If the CBFC sources are to be believed, the title will be changed from "Padmavati" to "Padmavat" and the film would be awarded a U/A certificate. "Panel member had insights & also some reservations regarding claimed historical events & socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", it added.

Rajput organisations, including Karni Sena came against the movie openly and called for a nationwide ban. The decision was made after the meeting of CBFC's examining committee.

The censor board further admitted, "The film was approached with balanced view keeping in mind both the filmmakers & society". The movie, which also stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, is set in the 14th century and tells the story of Rajput queen Padmavati of the kingdom of Chittor, Rajasthan. Protestors were angry over picturisation of Deepika Padukone's song Ghoomar and they also feels that the facts were not rightly shown in the film.
