Sanjay Leela Bhansali`s dream project `Padmavati`...correction! `Padmavat`, will get the long-awaited certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification, a.k.a censor board. The board has suggested five modifications to the film including a change in the title to `Padmavat` - and will issue the certificate once the modifications are made.

The filmmakers, producers and the director of the movie are reported to have agreed to the changes.

Amidst celebrations and uproars, rumours of having considerable cuts to the movie came up, in order to qualify the same for public viewing.

A member of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has dismissed the rumors, that the board has asked for several cuts in the controversial film `Padmavati`. Vani Tripathi Tikkoo said that the CBFC has only suggested few modifications in the movie. Those included changing the title to

`Padmavat` and other key modifications such as not glorifying the practice of Sati. Also relevant modifications in the song `Ghoomar` are to be made to serve the character portrayed, after which it would be given a UA certificate.

A written communication was sent to the CBFC, earlier requesting a panel of historians, academicians, and members of the Rajput community to review the film. The decision came only after a committee meeting was set up by CBFC on December 28, consisting of the regular committee members, along with CBFC officials and a special advisory panel in presence of Chairman Prasoon Joshi.

The period drama Padmavati, is based on the legend a 12th Century Hindu Rajput queen, Rani Padmini, mentioned in Padmavat, an Avadhi poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540. The movie faced the brunt of anger from various groups, including  Karni Sena, for allegedly distorting with historical facts.

"Stop the Misinformation Campaign for God sake on Padmavati, CBFC has not asked for any cuts with the U/A certificate it`s only a few modifications and a title change with the consent of the filmmaker. It`s finally over so let the film release and judge it then!", quoted Tikkoo.

 

Bhansali has been accused of doing "ched-chad" ( tampering ) with the authenticity of facts, event, and even characters. The moral police finally got their way, well, what can we say, no harm no foul. Check in with us for the latest updates on Padmavati.
