New Delhi: Padmavati movie can be released under a different name, i.e. Padmavat and the Central Board of Film Certification may cut 26 scenes from Padmavati. Now the path becomes clearer for the Film Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali to release the film but Sanjay Leela Bhansali has not given any clearer indication. Also the most popular song from the movie Padmavati, the ‘Ghoomar’ is asked to change. The review meeting was held on 28th December 2017 to minimize the controversies created by the movie. It is being said that all this decision is done on the suggestions of a special panel constituted by the Censor Board.
Padmavati may be received a U/A Certificate after the changes made –
According to a information received, if the name changes to Padmavat and also 26 cuts are made in the film then it can be given a U/A certification. This means that children under the age of 12 can view this film only in the direction of their parents. It has also been said that before the film, a disclaimer will also be given. That is, the story of the film will be fictional. However, till now no response has been received by the director of the film Sanjay Leela Bhansali or the producer, but it is believed that these conditions will be accepted.

According to the information, there were 6 members present in the panel made by the Censor Board. The panel had to decide after film review whether it was to be released in the cinema or not. The makers of Padmavati first wanted to release the film on December 12th, 2017 but they failed to do so. The film is based on the story of Rani Padmini of Chittorgarh where Deepika Padukone has played the role of Rani Padmavati.
Prior to this till today, the Descendant of Rani Padmavati, Mr Vishwaraj Singh had told that the Censor Board had invited him to join the review committee. In the meeting, Vishwaraj had questioned the functioning of the Censor Board and send two letters to Censor Chief, Prasoon Joshi, where Vishwaraj Singh had asked some questions about Padmavati in the film. Those questions were not answered by him. In those letters, Vishwa raised the question that when the film’s 5-minute scene could not be cured, then how would the censor repair the two-hour movie?
