In India, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) passed the film with five modification including some scenes from the song Ghoomar and changing the name of the film from Padmavati to Padmavat and than to Padmaavat.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, 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.
