Padmavati Release Row : Sanjay Leela Bhansali agrees to change name to Padmavat

Censor board will clear the film after bringing in key modifications -including change of title to "Padmavat".

"Special panel consisted of Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Dr.Chandramani Singh & Prof K.K. Singh of Jaipur University".

"According to a release issued by the CBFC, the board had a meeting of its examining committee December 28 and made a decision 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".

Later on, Bhansali appeared before a Parliamentary committee and maintained that the row over the yet-to-be released movie was just based on rumours, strongly rejecting charges that he had distorted "historical" facts about the possibly mythological Rajput queen, played by Deepika Padukone in the film. The films title is likely to change to Padmavat and minor changes are also demanded in controversial song Ghoomar. "Bhansali has agreed to change the title in order to release the film", a top CBFC executive told Mirror. Even after making the changes, the film will be able to release only with a U/A certificate.

"Padmavati", backed by Viacom18 Motion Pictures, is directed by Bhansali and features Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapur in lead roles.

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. In fact, the songs Sati and Ghoomar will also come with a disclaimer. Though they have not seen the movie, leaders of the Karni Sena and several politicians say the queen, Padmini has been disrespected by Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his movie as she is romantically involved with Muslim invader Alauddin Khilji. The panellists had some reservations regarding the claimed historical events & socio-cultural aspects of the film, which were duly discussed at length, CBFC claims.

The CBFC review meeting which took place on December 28, in the presence of the newly appointed chief Prasoon Joshi, was attended by regular examining committee members, along with other officials.

Karni Sena has been spearheading the nationwide protests against the screening of the film.

The CBFC then set up a special panel to watch the movie.
