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

"Over 70 supporters of the Karni Sena were detained from Cumballa Hill area in south Mumbai, while protesting outside the CBFC office without police permission", Zone II Deputy Commissioner of Police Dnyaneshwar Chavan said.

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

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat" will not be banned in Uttar Pradesh despite threats from the Karni Sena to disrupt the release on 25th January 2018.

There are no 300 cuts in Padmavat, say the films producers, appreciating the balanced, fair and transparent process followed by the censor board in suggesting five modifications in the movie. It was decided at the meeting that the movie will be given a U/A certification as long as the makers incorporate suggestions and modifications suggested.

According to a release issued by the CBFC, the board had a meeting of their examining committee on December 28 and made a decision to give the film a "UA certification along with some modifications and likely change of the film's title on the basis the attributed material/creative source". As of now, we have not got any intimation about the film being released.

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

Bhansali, who appeared before a parliamentary panel, had said his lavishly mounted Rs 150-crore period drama is based on the 16th century epic poem "Padmavat" by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The film has faced strong opposition from several Rajput groups for alleged distortion of history.

Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, Shahid Kapoor, Aditi Rao Hydari and Jim Sarbh.
