Now: Padmavati becomes Padmaavat..

Deepika Padukone in 'Padmaavat'

The clarification follows Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chairperson Prasoon Joshi's statement that no more than five modifications have been suggested to the makers for the film to get U/A certificate. The disclaimer before any film says that this film is a work of fiction and one of the fundamental human rights is the right to freedom of expression.

Due to Karni sena's radical protests the release of once Padmavat'i' was stalled indefinitely has Censor Board of Film Certification did not deemed it fit to pass the film from their end.

Modifications to the song "Ghoomar" were sought to make the depiction befitting to the character being portrayed, apart from modifications to the incorrect/misleading reference to historical places.

The five modifications included title change from Padmavati to Padmaavat as the filmmakers have attributed their creative source as the fictional poem Padmaavat and not history.

Earlier, reports said that Padmavati, now Padmaavat, was supposed to release on January 25, the same day as Akshay Kumar's Padman.

On Thursday, producers of the film, Viacom 18, confirmed the new name of the film, Padmaavat, while staying quiet about the release date. Bhansali's love ballad - which stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in lead roles - was scheduled to release on December 1, 2017.
