CBFC chief shoots down report of 300 cuts in Padmavat

As of now, we have not got any intimation about the film being released.

The producers on Wednesday said only five "modifications" were recommended by the censor board which they have accepted and implemented.

After Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh, Gujarat has banned the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's ambitious project Padmaavat.

At least 159 activists of the Rajasthan-based Karni Sena were arrested today while protesting outside the Central Board of Film Certifications office here against the clearance given to Sanjay Leela Bhansalis "Padmavat", earlier titled "Padmavati".

At the CBFC examining committee meeting on December 28, it was decided that the movie would be given a U/A certification as long as the makers incorporate the suggestions and modifications suggested.

The Viacom spokesperson also said that an official announcement will be made very soon on the new release date of the film.

Karni Sena workers claim that changing the name of the film doesn't suffice.

Mr. Prasoon Joshi said -"The makers have submitted the final film with agreed five modifications. They have changed the name of the film, but that does not change anything", Parmar said. It seems that after the film went through the Censor Board of Film Certification's scrutiny, its title not only lost an "i" but also gained an "a". The CBFC's process is complete and any further news about cuts etc is absolutely untrue."Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini of Chittor, who committed Jauhar(self-immolation) after Alauddin Khilji invaded her fort. Shahid plays Rawal Ratan Singh, Deepika's husband". And will be clashing with Akshay Kumar's Pad Man.
