Padmavati is Padmaavat officially: Bhansali changes film name after CBFC order

Padmaavat After Rajasthan Gujarat bans film

Padmaavat After Rajasthan Gujarat bans film

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) passed Padmaavat (earlier titled Padmavati) after suggesting five edits (including the title), a couple of weeks ago. Lokendra Singh Kalvi, Karni Sena chief, had alleged that the CBFC cleared Padmaavat with a U/A certification and a few minor cuts despite opposition from the advisory panel they appointed to review the film's historical accuracy.

Although Padmavat is not the only film creating ripples in the film timetable but it surely is the first one to start the domino effect in 2018.

The spokesperson said, "We appreciate the balanced and considered approach that the CBFC has taken to address this situation". 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.


- Modifications to the incorrect/misleading reference to historical places.

Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures have accepted the above changes. "We believe that these changes are in line with the filmic depiction of the story we wanted to tell". "We have full faith in the CBFC and in the transparent, fair and inclusive process that has been followed". The film before getting embroiled in controversies was scheduled to release on December 1.The makers have changed the name on all social media sites, namely Twitter and Instagram, and are expected to change the same in the official poster, trailer and released songs as well. But according to reports, Padmavat is going to release on January 25. On Thursday, producers of the film, Viacom 18, confirmed the new name of the film, Padmaavat, while staying quiet about the release date.

Gujarat is the second Indian state after Rajasthan to have banned the screening of the controversial Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial. "Padmavat" has been given a censor certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
