Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his Padmavati producers Viacom18 Motion Pictures have been under quite pressure. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had resent the film back to the makers and the protests against the film were never-ending. Today, it was learned that the Examining Committee of the CBFC viewed the film Padmavati on December 28 and it got cleared with a U/A certificate subject.
Not only did the film get passed with a U/A certificate but also the title has been changed from Padmavati to Padmavat. Besides these, the makers were suggested to put disclaimers regarding the Sati scene and ‘Ghoomar’ song. The meet consisted of the regular examining committee members along with the CBFC officials and a special advisory panel in presence of the Chairman Prasoon Joshi.
As the news of title change broke, Twitterati was quite amused by the title change. They poked fun at everyone from government to CBFC for the giving it clearance but changing the title.
