  • CBFC's riders: 'Padmavat' instead of Padmavati and 26 changes

The certificate, as per the procedure, will be issued once the required modifications are carried out and the final material is submitted.

Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairperson Prasoon Joshi on Monday said a special panel for the certification of controversial movie "Padmavati" was appointed for an advisory goal, and that the final decision was always with the censor board. Further, a modification has been suggested in the "incorrect/misleading reference to historical places", Joshi said.

The CBFC chairman Prasoon Joshi said that they have only advised five modifications, including the title change, but "no cuts".

Padmavat is an epic poem written in 1540 by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi and it is based on a historical account - the veracity of which is not confirmed - about how Delhi Sultan Alauddin Khilji saw the magnificently attractive Rani Padmini, Queen of Chittor, in a mirror, and immediately fell for her.

In an exclusive interview, Joshi said that the producers and director of Padmavati are "completely in agreement with these changes".

The CBFC has also urged the makers to modify the song 'Ghoomar' to make the depiction befitting the character being displayed.

The board had a meeting of their examining committee on December 28 and made a decision to give the film a "U/A certification along with some modifications and likely change of the film's title on the basis of the attributed material/creative source".

Padmavati or Padmavat stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as her husband, Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Allaudin Khilji. The viewing was attended by CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi and the film has been vetted by a panel of experts. "The members of the panel had insights and also some reservations regarding the claimed historical events and socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", Joshi said.

The censor board said on Saturday it has begun the process for granting a U/A certificate to the film.

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".

Joshi added that the filmmakers, BhansaIi Productions, in a written communication to the CBFC, "had themselves requested for a special panel of historians and members of the Rajput community to view the film". He also defended setting up a "special panel" to see the film and suggest changes, saying, "It is very important that creativity with responsibility should stay paramount".
