Padmavati granted UA certificate; to release with new title, Padmavat

"It will not change the fact that the movie refers to real places, my ancestors and other persons in history with their names continuing to remain the same", Singh wrote in a letter to Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) Chairman Prasoon Joshi.

The supreme CBFC has demanded not one but 26 cuts in a film before they even consider of censoring it. Sanjay Bhansali film never has any nudity, foul language and disruptive violence and similar must be the case with Padmavati hence one wonders what CBFC wants to cut of that film.

Regarding the film's title "Padmavati", Joshi said the discussed change is to "Padmavat" as the filmmakers have attributed their material/creative source as the fictional poem "Padmavat" and not history. Initially set for December 1st, 2017 release date, the makers have to pick a new date now. Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi from this pressure spoke to the media and said if Padmavat releases in theatres, the men belonging to Sri Rajput Karna Sena will vandalize each and every cinema hall showing the flick.

The decision came after an examining committee meeting by the CBFC was held on December 28.

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

"The I of the storm has passed". But yet, the CBFC made a decision to pass the film due to pressure from underworld is what they have alleged!

"If the makers agree with the CBFC's recommendations, then it will get a U/A certification, which means parental guidance for children below the age of 12 years is required for their viewing", a board official said. That shows the CBFC went out of its way to help the filmmaker. Thereby, nobody will have any issue and nobody's sentiments will be hurt.

But there is good news for fans who are had been eagerly waiting to see the film. "Can you imagine what title CBFC would suggest", Dholakia tweeted.

The second objection is to Padmavati performing the "Ghoomar" dance in a darbar which they said is an affront to the Rajput culture as no queen or princess would ever dance in a durbar.
