Karni Sena protests outside CBFC office in Mumbai; members detained

A senior Home Department official told a news agency on Wednesday that there was no order as such to ban the proposed release of the film in the state.

Virendra Singh, the spokesperson of Karni Sena, said that members from the outfit and even other Rajput associations assembled here to protest.

Deepika Padukone's Padmaavat has been speculated to have undergone major cuts for getting a certificate from CBFC!

This film got into a controversy after Rajput groups claimed that it distorts history.

After a long wait, the e Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has finally passed Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmavati starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh.

Mr. Prasoon Joshi said -"The makers have submitted the final film with agreed five modifications". Padmaavat is a 200 crore film which is 50 more than Tiger Zinda Hai so it needs as many as audience as possible just to recover the budget and no one will travel out of their respective states to go and watch a film in cinema theater. Earlier the CBFC on Tuesday refuted reports that it had asked for cuts and declared that the movie was given a U/A certificate. These modifications have tried to incorporate observations and suggestions given by the advisory panel and also in keeping with the sentiments of society.

"We appreciate the balanced and considered approach that the CBFC has taken to address this situation", a company spokesperson from Viacom18 Media Pvt Ltd said. "Addition of a disclaimer which clearly makes the point that the film in no manner subscribes to the practice of Sati or seeks to glorify it", the statement said.

Apart from this, changes have been ordered in the song "Ghoomar" to make the depiction "befitting" the character being portrayed.

Secondly, the title of the movie was suggested to be changed from Padmavati to Padmavat if the filmmakers had added their creativity.
