The long-drawn battle between the makers of the film and the CBFC ended on December 28 previous year after the CBFC chose to give U/A certificate to the period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor, and Ranveer Singh.
The disclaimer should not claim historical accuracy. The petitioner's counsel, Nishant Bora, said since the name of the film was changed to "Padmavat" from "Padmavati", the FIR had become pointless and the film should be allowed to release in the state.
Apart from this, changes have been ordered in the song "Ghoomar" to make the depiction "befitting" the character being portrayed.
While Padmaavat release has been banned in BJP-ruled Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh, Goa on Monday clarified that the movie could be released there.
India has the largest film industry in the world in terms of number of films produced. The makers of the film changed the title across all social media platforms (Instagram and Twitter) dedicated to the film. We firmly deny all speculation on extensive cuts to the film and want to reiterate that only the above changes and disclaimers (as) per guidance of the CBFC have been made. He says his suggestion to the CBFC was to change all references to actual historical figures or places. Padmavati was scheduled for a release on the same date but as the film did not get a thumbs up from the Censor Board other films were shifted to avoid a dry spell in the first week of December.
The film has Deepika Padukone playing the lead role of Rani Padmini and also stars Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh. And will be clashing with Akshay Kumar's Pad Man.
