Padmavati finally gets a heads up, as Padmavat

by , Tuesday, January 02, 2018

With a name change, a disclaimer, and “relevant modifications” to the song Ghoomar, the film Padmavati may finally see a release. The Censor board issued a statement on Saturday afternoon saying an examining committee meeting held on December 28 had decided to allow release of the film with the above changes and and a UA certificate. 

Prasoon Joshi said they had not asked for any cuts

In an exclusive interview, Joshi said that the producers and director of Padmavati are “completely in agreement with these changes”. He also defended setting up a “special panel” to see the film and suggest changes, saying, “It is very important that creativity with responsibility should stay paramount. It is important for all of us to learn to hear newer voices and listen to unfamiliar points of view with mutual respect, equanimity and grace.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has suggested that the name of the film may be changed from ‘Padmavati’ to  ‘Padmavat’, as per the “attributed material/creative source”. The film borrows from the poem Padmavat, written by 16th-century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The filmmakers have also been asked to add a disclaimer stating that the film does not glorify the banned practice of Sati, and to make changes to Ghoomar song in keeping with the fact that Deepika Padukone plays a Rajput princess. Rajput groups had protested saying a princess of their community would never dance in front of men who were strangers.

Following the meeting, a feedback session was held with the producers and director of Padmavati, the CBFC release said. The suggestions for changes were shared with the fimmakers, and they were in agreement with the modifications, it said.
