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.
