Padmaavat row: Karni Sena members protest outside CBFC office; get detained

Rajput Karni Sena workers were detained for protesting outside the Central Board of Film Certification office in connection with the release of film Padmavat at Peddar Road in Mumbai India on Friday

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) last week announced its decision to grant the certification to the controversial Bhansali directorial - subject to five modifications including a title change. What we are yet to know is whether Bhansali, stung by the protests and controversies, chose this spelling because he felt it was linguistically correct or because he felt it was more auspicious than Padmavat.

In an official statement, the producers said, "We appreciate the balanced and considered approach that CBFC has taken to address this situation".

Asked if they were ready to watch the film pre-release to clear their doubts, Solanki said: "The whole projection of our community is wrong". KK Singh and Dr. Chandramani Singh of the Jaipur University and Arvind Singh from Udaipur approved the movie with a U/A certificate.

- Change the disclaimer to one that clearly does not claim historical accuracy.

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

Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures have accepted the above changes.

India's Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairperson Prasoon Joshi on Tuesday refuted a report that the "modifications" demanded by the censor board in the historical drama have resulted in 300 cuts.

The movie, which was earlier set to arrive in theatres on December 1 past year, will now release on January 25.

Some of the earlier speculations had stated that the film will be named as Padmavat, after the 16th century poem that the film is reportedly an adoption of.

This film got into a controversy after Rajput groups claimed that it distorts history.

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

Historians are divided on whether Padmini actually existed.
