CBFC clears Padmavati with U/A certificate and new title

Deepika Padukone's Padmavati To Be Renamed As Padmavat Censor Board Prescribes Three More Changes

The board also asked to make 26 cuts in the film apart from the change in the title and has said that the certificate will only be issued after the suggested cuts and modifications are done.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's much troubled film Padmavati has finally been awarded a U/A certificate but with some suggested modifications and a likely change of the film's title to Padmavat, to clarify its "attributed material/ creative source".

According to the officials, the decision was taken keeping in mind the views of the filmmakers and Indian society. "Panel member had insights and also some reservations regarding claimed historical events and socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", the board official added.

Padmavat is the 16th century epic in verse by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The board took the decision after its examining committee and a special advisory panel met on December 28 to review the film featuring actor Deepika Padukone as Rajput queen Padmavati. Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Dr Chandramani Singh and professor K K Singh of the Jaipur University were also included in the special panel.




The film's final 3D application was submitted on November 28, the CBFC said. Padmavati was supposed to release on 1st December 2017, but thanks to ongoing controversies and some bending of the rules from the side of the makers, the film has been postponed.

He added that the producers and director had been asked to run a disclaimer saying the movie does not "claim historical accuracy", and that they were "completely in agreement" with the suggestions.

Members of the organization had earlier this year physically assaulted Bhansali during the film's shooting in Jaipur earlier this year, vandalized the sets of the movie on the outskirts of Mumbai, and then issued threats against Bhansali and Padukone.

The second objection is to Padmavati performing the "Ghoomar" dance in a darbar which they said is an affront to the Rajput culture as no queen or princess would ever dance in a durbar. He also alleged that the members of the Examining Committee that saw the film opposed the granting of certification.
