Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmavati’ has finally been cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and as per the modifications that were recemmended by the board, the producers have officially changed the title of the Ranveer-Deepika starrer to ‘Padmaavat’.
The social media handles of the film have also changed their name to Padmaavat.
CBFC recommended five modifications in the flick to avoid more controversy, the change of the movie-title being one of them.
Apart from this, changes have been ordered in the song ‘Ghoomar’ to make the depiction ‘befitting’ the character being portrayed. The other big modification was to change the incorrect or misleading references to historical places.[ecp code=”4″]
‘Padmavati’, now renamed as ‘Padmavat’, was earlier scheduled to release on December 1, 2017, but continuous protests and CBFC fiasco forced the makers to shift the date.
Padmavati features Deepika in the lead playing the titular role of Rani Padmavati, Ranveer Singh and Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Maharwal Ratan Singh.
