Padmaavat row: Karni Sena workers detained, say changing name not enough

"We arrested 136 Karni Sena supporters, who were protesting outside the CBFC office at Cumballa Hill area in South Mumbai, under section 143 of IPC for unlawful assembly", he said.

CBFC gave it the green signal with a U/A certification in consultation with a three-member advisory panel. As Per Latest Reports Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film is all set to hit the screens on January 25, 2018.

CBFC, in consultation with a special advisory panel, saw the movie last month and chose to grant the film a U/A certificate with five modifications, including title change and two disclaimers.

The controversial film Padmavati might not have got an official release date, but has an official name after enough of speculations regarding the name of the film.

- The title is to be changed from Padmavati to Padmavat - as the filmmakers have attributed their creative source as the fictional poem Padmavat, and not history. Padmaavat is a 200 crore film which is 50 more than Tiger Zinda Hai so it needs as many as audience as possible just to recover the budget and no one will travel out of their respective states to go and watch a film in cinema theater. The historians were astonished whether Padmini actually existed.

The CBFC had suggested five changes in the film including the changing of title and putting additional disclaimers.

They were even asked to add two disclaimers - one that clearly does not claim historical accuracy, and another which makes the point that the film in no manner subscribes to the practice of Sati or seeks to glorify it.

This is not the first time a movie's title has been a figure of controversy.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmavati", which was slated to release on December 1, 2017, got caught in a political storm, thus delaying its release. Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh is stepping into the shoes of Alauddin Khilji.
