'Unprofessional and irresponsible': Royals slam Censor board for clearing Padmavati

Padmavati1

India's censors on Saturday cleared a controversial film backed by Viacom Inc that looks into the relationship of a Hindu queen and a Muslim ruler, after suggesting some modifications.

In the latest meeting of Examining Committee on December 28, CBFC made a decision to grant the film a UA certification with the condition that 26 scenes are cut and the title of the film is changed from Padmavati to Padmavat.

He added that the producers and director had been asked to run a disclaimer saying the movie does not "claim historical accuracy", and that they were "completely in agreement" with the suggestions.

Padmavat is based on a poem of the same name by 16th century Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi and stars Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in the leads. The source of the portal says that the name of the film might be changed to Padmavat.

Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun has had a medical at Everton ahead of a proposed £20 million move, according to The Sun . He said: "We need a front man if we can find one and will be actively looking for one in this window".

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has chose to give Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati a U/A certificate and has suggested the director to change the film's title to Padmavat. "Panel member had insights and also some reservations regarding claimed historical events and socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", the board official added.

The reports said the Examining Committee of CBFC viewed the film on Dec 28 and altered its title from Padmavati to Padmavat.

Historians are divided about whether the queen existed, but many Rajputs believe she did and accuse Bhansali of portraying her in a bad light.

Vishvaraj also mentioned that he earlier wrote a letter on December 22 stating, "The fact remains that my questions are relevant for every member of the proposed committee and without resolving the same, the committee's findings shall remain a mirage".

The Sensex advanced by 116.53 points, or 0.34 percent, while the Nifty gained 37.70 points, or 0.35 percent, during the period. The broad-based NSE Nifty rose 52.80 points, or 0.50%, to end at 10,530.70 after trading between 10,538.70 and 10,488.65.

Bhansali Productions, in a written communication to the CBFC, had earlier requested that a panel of historians/academicians and members of the Rajput community should watch the film.

Trouble started in January this year when Rajasthan-based fringe group Rajput Karni Sena assaulted Bhansali on the sets in Jaipur.

That apart, they have demanded modification in the "incorrect/misleading reference to historical places", Joshi said. In fact, the songs Sati and Ghoomar will also come with a disclaimer.
