The uncertainty surrounding the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s controversial period drama Padmavati, might just be coming to an end.
The Examining Committee of the CBFC viewed the film Padmavati on 28 December and passed the film with a UA certificate subject to some cuts and the alteration of title of the film from Padmavati to Padmavat.
Other key modifications include the use of disclaimers, particularly one clarifying the practice of Sati is not being glorified. The song Ghoomar will also undergo some modifications to befit the character of Rani Padmini.
The certificate as per procedure will be issued once the required modifications are carried out and final material submitted.
The meeting consisted of the regular examining committee members along with the CBFC officials and a special advisory panel in presence of the Chairman Prasoon Joshi.
The director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who attended the feedback session post the screening and are in agreement with the modifications.
Now, it will surely be a big sigh of relief for Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
