"Padmavati" Now "Padmavat", Cleared With 5 Changes Even Including A Song!

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

Mumbai: The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) in a meeting on December 28 chose to give Padmavati a U/A certificate after some modifications in the film.

The censor board had said that it wanted the disclaimer to clearly state that this film does not claim historical accuracy, modify misleading references to historical places and also incorporate a second disclaimer which clearly makes the strong point that the film does not promote the practice of Sati or even seek to glorify it. Bhansali, who appeared before a parliamentary panel, had said his lavishly-mounted Rs 150 crore period drama is based on the 16th-century epic poem Padmavat by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The song "Ghoomar" was also asked to be modified so as to make the depiction befitting the character being portrayed.

The board has now suggested five modifications to do to the film also including a change in the title to "Padmavat" - and will also issue the certificate once the modifications are made to the film.

Padmavati or Padmavat stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as her husband, Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Allaudin Khilji.

He said that this was not the first instance that a special panel was appointed for the certification process as a similar practice was followed while certifying "Jodhaa Akbar" and "Aarkashan". The film, which was initially scheduled to release on 1 December, has been dragged into controversies for alleged distortion of facts from Rajput history, with Rajput religious outfits, actively protesting its release.

Rocket fire from Gaza rose following US President Donald Trump's decision to formally recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Locals said that Israeli naval ships chased down fishing boats off the coast of northern Gaza and opened fire at them.

The CBFC release said that the December 28 meeting, preceded by a screening of the film, was attended by Joshi, members of the executive committee and a special panel comprising Udaipur royal Arvind Singh and academics Dr Chandramani Singh and K K Singh of Jaipur University.

Following the meeting, a feedback session was held with the producers and director of Padmavati, the CBFC release said.

"The filmmakers, Bhansali Productions, in a written communication to CBFC had themselves too requested for a special panel of historians/academicians and members of the Rajput community to view the Film", the CBFC chief stated in an email sent to ANI.

Commenting on the three-member panel that reviewed the film, he said, "The royal being referred to in today's news as part of the panel that reviewed the film was not the head of the family, Maharana Mahendra Singhji Mewar, or me". He also defended setting up a "special panel" to see the film and suggest changes, saying, "It is very important that creativity with responsibility should stay paramount".

"This was an unprecedented and tough situation".
