'Padmavati' cleared by CBFC, film title to be changed

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

Members of the committee formed to review the film had opposed it but the censor board was taking this decision due to underworld pressure, Sukhdev Singh Gogamediof the Rajput Karni Sena told ANI.

The special panel that watched the film along with the examining commitee of the CBFC consisted of a royal, Arvind Singh from Udaipur and historians Dr Chandramani Singh and Prof KK Singh of the Jaipur University. Meanwhile the director of the film has agreed to make the changes suggested by the board.


Bhansali, who appeared before a parliamentary panel, has said his lavishly mounted 150crore period drama, featuring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, is based on the 16th century epic poem "Padmavat" by Malik Muhammad Jayasi. After the release being deterred from December 1, Padmavati finally gets a green signal from Censor Board. They will be seen portraying the roles of Queen Padmini, Rana Rawal Ratan Singh and Alauddin Khilji respectively.

"The film was approached with a balanced view keeping in mind the filmmakers and the society. Considering complexities and concerns around the film the requirement for a special panel was felt by CBFC to add perspective to the final decision", it added. "Can you imagine what title the CBFC would suggest?", Twitter influencer Ramesh Srivats posted, "Both Sanjay Leela Bansal and Prasoon Josh are happy about Padmavat, and they hope this compromise is acceptable to Narendra Mod and Rahul Gandh". The panellists had some reservations regarding the claimed historical events & socio-cultural aspects of the film, which were duly discussed at length, CBFC claims.


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". The protesters against the film, which has been embroiled in controversy for a few months, however, say their agitation against it will continue.

Rajput organisations, including Karni Sena came against the movie openly and called for a nationwide ban. 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.
