After a meeting with the examining committee on Thursday, the Central Board of Film Certification has now agreed to issue a U/A certificate to film Padmavati with some modifications, including the change in the title to Padmavat


According to a report filed by ANI, other key modifications include the use of additional disclaimers, especially to clarify that the practice of Sati is not being glorified. The song Ghoomar will also be amended to befit the character of Rani Padmini.

Following a request made by the makers of Padmavati, the censor board had set up a panel of historians and members of the Rajput community to review the film. And the final 3D application of Padmavati was submitted on November 28.

Besides CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, the special panel reportedly consisted of Shri Arvind Singh from Udaipur as well as Dr Chandramani Singh and Prof K.K. Singh of the Jaipur University.

As per India Today, the modification details and the CBFC’s decision were shared with the producers, Viacom18, and filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who attended the feedback session post the screening and are in agreement with the modifications. 

The certificate will now be issued once required and agreed changes are made.

This is how Twitter reacted to the decision.

The makers of the film & its actors were subjected to many threats by fringe groups including the Karni Sena for allegedly distorting facts.
