Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati is now officially titled Padmaavat

Rajput Karni Sena

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), headed by Prasoon Joshi, recently cleared Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat with a U/A certificate, after various changes and cuts were made, including the change of title from Padmavati.

CBFC has recommended five modification the to makers of the film. The film's certification was due for a long time and it was one of the reasons why the film could not release earlier.

The controversy around the film Padmavat doesn't seem to be ending despite the Censor Board clearance to the film.

Deepika Padukone-starrer Padmavati has now offically been renamed Padmaavat, after Malik Muhammad Jayasi's 16th Century epic poem that the film is supposedly based on.

The report further read that "Padmavat" director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been instructed to delete all references to Delhi, Chittorgarh and Mewar from the film and that "buzz is that they (the modifications) have resulted in as many as 300 cuts".

It is co-produced by Bhansali and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. "We believe that these changes are in line with the filmic depiction of the story we wanted to tell". After several days' speculation, the name of the film has finally been changed to Padmaavat. Padmavati was scheduled for a release on the same date but as the film did not get a thumbs up from the Censor Board other films were shifted to avoid a dry spell in the first week of December. "We have full faith in the CBFC and in the transparent, fair and inclusive process that has been followed", Viacom18's company spokesperson added.

The official handles of the film on Facebook and Twitter were also changed to Padmaavat Thursday morning. Earlier it was scheduled to release in December a year ago which was postponed to January 25. And will be clashing with Akshay Kumar's Pad Man.

Meanwhile, CBFC has suggested some 300 cuts to the film."The makers submitted the final film with agreed five modifications".
