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

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

Joshi was present along with the examining committee members and the special panel, which comprised Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Chandramani Singh and Professor K.K. Singh of the Jaipur University.

According to ANI, Central Board of Film Certification had examining committee meeting on 28 Dec to review #Padmavati & chose to give it UA certificate along with some modifications & likely change of the title to Padmavat.

Some fringe groups had accused the makers of tainting the image of their revered queen Padmavati on whom the film is supposedly based.

Sources in the CBFC said the new release date will be decided by the producers after the changes are made. The story is narrated in poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic titled Padmavat, which was written in 1540. The film was originally scheduled to release on December 1. It earlier said the film captured "Rajput valor, dignity and tradition in all its glory".

He also said that cosmetic changes like changing the title of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film from "Padmavati" to "Padmavat" would not change the facts.

Modifications in the song "Ghoomar" to make the depiction befitting the character being portrayed.

The row took an ugly turn when threats were issued against Bhansali and Deepika."Padmavati" also features Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. "Panel member had insights and also some reservations regarding claimed historical events and socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", the board official added. 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. "They are in agreement with the modifications", the Board said. In March, unidentified people vandalised the movie sets in Maharashtra's Kolhapur district. "I am glad that following a balanced approach we resolved the task at hand in a pragmatic and positive manner", CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi said.

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