Padmavati to release in March 2018 with 26 cuts, new name

Title to be changed from "Padmavati" to "Padmavat" as the filmmakers have attributed their material/creative source as the fictional poem "Padmavat" and not history.

Further mentioning that the film was reviewed by a special panel made by the CBFC, comprising of historians, the official added, "Special panel consisted of Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Dr Chandramani Singh and Professor KK Singh of Jaipur University".

"According to a release issued by the CBFC, the board had a meeting of its examining committee December 28 and chose to give the film a "UA certification" along with some modifications and likely change of the film's title on the basis of the attributed material/creative source".

The film, based on the life of Rajput queen Padmini, has run into trouble with Rajput groups alleging that it distorts history.

Joshi said these suggested changes "are completely in agreement with the filmmakers - the producers and director of the film".

The year was about to end on a great note after it came to light that the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has agreed to provide certification to Padmavati. Initially set for December 1st, 2017 release date, the makers have to pick a new date now.

The film Padmavati had yet not been certified by the CBFC, causing delay in its release! "Panel member had insights & also some reservations regarding claimed historical events & socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", it added.

Erstwhile Mewar royal family member Vishvaraj Singh has said that cosmetic changes like changing the title of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming Bollywood film from Padmavati to Padmavat would not change the facts. Also, keeping in view the interests of the Karni Sena and other fringe groups, the board has decided on more than 26 cuts in the film.

The movie had angered a group called the Karni Sena in Rajasthan and other Rajput groups.

That apart, they have demanded modification in the "incorrect/misleading reference to historical places", Joshi said.

There has also been opposition over including the controversial Ghoomar song in the movie.

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.
