'300 cuts in Padmavat' is untrue: CBFC

'300 cuts in Padmavat' is untrue: CBFC”

But now that the film has received the U/A certificate, there are speculations doing rounds that the board has made as many as 300 cuts to the film. However, Gogamedi said: "After watching "Padmavati", Arvind Singh and KK Singh said this film will ignite protests".

"Bhansali has been under security cover for a while now but owing to threat perception security has been extended to the actors", said another senior official who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

CBFC had given the Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor starrer a U/A certificate and suggested numerous changes including changing the title, from Padmavati to Padmaavat. The Ghoomar song was also asked to be changed to fit the character in it.The latest development is the change in the title, which was one of the modifications suggested by the censor board.

The disclaimer should not claim historical accuracy.

The person added on saying, "Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures, as producers, have accepted and have made all the above changes".

Ahead of the release of the film on 25 January, Karni Sena have started the protest on Friday in Mumbai by gheraoing the office of the CBFC, which is chaired by lyricist and scriptwriter Prasoon Joshi. "We believe that these changes are in line with the filmic depiction of the story we wanted to tell".

"CBFC's process is complete and any further news about cuts is absolutely untrue". The film has been passed by five modification and the historical drama will be officially called Padmaavat.

A series of controversies, which included threat from a fringe group, led to the delayng of the launch of the film from its initial date of Dec 1. The historians were astonished whether Padmini actually existed.

It's (almost) official. Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus is not Padmavati and neither is it Padmavat.
