After facing a lot of opposition from the communal groups Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati now Padmavat is finally going to hit the screens on 25th January 2018 after getting a green signal from The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
The CBFC passed the film with five modification, but soon there was news that one of the modification has resulted in 300 cuts. The 300 cuts included removal of references to Delhi, Chittorgarh, and Mewar. Also, the audience watching the film will not be able to know from where did Alauddin Khilji come, why he invaded India or why he took a fancy of the Queen here?
But now a source close to CBFC has said “The makers have submitted the final film with agreed five modifications which has already been communicated and a U/A certificate has been given to the film. CBFC’s process is complete and any further news about cuts etc is absolutely untrue. Let’s refrain from utilizing CBFC’s name unnecessarily,”
Padmavat which stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor is based on the legend of Rani Padmini, a Hindu Rajput queen, mentioned in Padmavat, an Avadhi poem written by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi in 1540, has been facing protests from various groups, particularly Shri Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts.
