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

The censor board has made a decision to give Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati a UA certificate without any cuts but has suggested that the director change the film's title to "Padmavat" besides making four other modifications.

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

Joshi added that the producers and the director of the film are "completely in agreement" with the proposed modifications.

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. The board has suggested approximately "30 changes" and also recommended that the film's title be changed to Padmavat.

Bhansali Productions, in a written communication to the CBFC, had earlier requested that a panel of historians/academicians and members of the Rajput community should watch the film.

Batiz, who lived in the building, was at work when the fire started just before 7 p.m. "The building is gone", he said. And the Thursday night blaze was New York City's deadliest since a blaze at a Bronx club killed 87 people in 1990.

The CBFC agreed to clear Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati with a U/A certificate and asked the filmmakers to put in a disclaimer that the movie does not claim historical accuracy and does not in any way subscribe to or seek to glorify the practice of Jauhar - the banned practice of a widow throwing herself on to her husband's funeral pyre. "Panel member had insights and also some reservations regarding claimed historical events and socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", NDTV reported citing a board official.

Rajput groups object to the Ghoomar song, alleging that it portrays Padmavati in a courtesan-like manner. "Members of the committee formed to review the film have opposed it but censor board is taking this decision due to underworld pressure", Gogamedi said. They also alleged that the film shows an intimate sequence between Alauddin Khilji and Queen Padmavati.

CBFC had also approached three erstwhile rulers, Raghuveer Singh of Sirohi, Maharawal Jagmal Singh of Banswara and Vishwaraj Singh Mewar, for their expert views on the film. They even burnt the sets of the movie in outskirts of Mumbai.

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