PADMAAVAT ROW: Karni Sena Protests Outside CBFC Office In Mumbai

PADMAAVAT ROW: Karni Sena Protests Outside CBFC Office In Mumbai

However, the makers of the film, Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions, are happy with the way the CBFC carried out the process of certification and have disclosed the changes ordered by the censor board.

Hearing a petition filed by the director of the film, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, seeking the quashing of an FIR lodged against him at Didwana in Merta in March previous year, the court posted the matter to January 23. Out of these alterations, one was that the film would be renamed and should be officially called Padmaavat and it has finally happened.

Members of Karni Sena were detained by Mumbai police after they "gheraoed" the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) office on Friday to protest against the coming release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat".

Some of the key modifications suggested include those pertaining to disclaimers, pertinently adding one regarding not glorifying the practice of Sati. It has also suggested relevant modifications in the song Ghoomar to befit the character portrayed. "They have changed the name of the film but that does not change anything", Parmar stated.

The official handles of the film on Facebook and Twitter were also changed to Padmaavat Thursday morning.

The movie is now scheduled to release on Jan 25.

The protesters told media that changing the name of the film from "Padmavati" to "Padmavat" was not enough to warrant its release. He says his suggestion to the CBFC was to change all references to actual historical figures or places.

Earlier, Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie was slated to release on December 1, but postponed due to the controversy over its plot.

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

Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh. Padmaavat clashes at the box office with Akshay Kumar's PadMan.
