Royal family slams CBFC for clearing 'Padmavati' sans consent


The board asked for several cuts, and a name change, before giving the film the certification for showing in theatres in India.

"Special panel consisted of Arvind Singh from Udaipur, Dr.Chandramani Singh & Prof K.K. Singh of Jaipur University".

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film "Padmavati", which has been at the centre of a huge controversy, will get the long-awaited certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification, popularly called the censor board.

Later on, Bhansali appeared before a Parliamentary committee and maintained that the row over the yet-to-be released movie was just based on rumours, strongly rejecting charges that he had distorted "historical" facts about the possibly mythological Rajput queen, played by Deepika Padukone in the film.

Regarding the film's title "Padmavati", Joshi said the discussed change is to "Padmavat" as the filmmakers have attributed their material/creative source as the fictional poem "Padmavat" and not history. The December 1 release was deferred indefinitely by the makers and the magnum opus has been banned in multiple states, mostly ruled by the BJP. Uncertainty has been looming large over the movie's release since a few months, but on Saturday, CBFC - following a examining committee meeting - said it has made a decision to give a U/A certificate to the movie subject to modifications.

According to an official of the CBFC, "The film was approached with balanced view keeping in mind both the filmmakers and society".

The CBFC review meeting which took place on December 28, in the presence of the newly appointed chief Prasoon Joshi, was attended by regular examining committee members, along with other officials.




"This was an unprecedented and tough situation".

Historians are divided over whether Padmavati ever existed.

Commenting on the three-member panel that reviewed the film, he said, "The royal being referred to in today's news as part of the panel that reviewed the film was not the head of the family, Maharana Mahendra Singhji Mewar, or me".

A member of the organisation, Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, while talking to media persons, said, "They are playing with our emotions".

Trouble started in January this year when Rajasthan-based fringe group Rajput Karni Sena assaulted Bhansali on the sets in Jaipur.

There has also been opposition over including the controversial Ghoomar song in the movie.
