WAR NOT OVER: Censors Ready To CLEAR Padmavati, Rajputs OPPOSE

Will Padmavati see the light of day? Rajputs are still sitting in the opposition despite the Censor Board having come forward to clear it!

So yesterday afternoon, we brought you the story that the Censor Board wants changes in Ghoomar song and the title of the film (Padmavat, not Padmavati).

In a report in ETimes, Joshi admitted and elaborated: There are no cuts suggested in this film by the CBFC - only 5 modifications. First, to change the disclaimer to one that clearly does not claim historical accuracy. Second, the title is to be changed from 'Padmavati' to 'Padmavat' - as the filmmakers have attributed their creative source as the fictional poem Padmavat, and not history. Third, there will be modifications in the song 'Ghoomar', to make the depiction befitting to the character being portrayed. Fourth, modification to the incorrect/misleading reference to historical places. And the fifth is the addition of a disclaimer which clearly makes the point that the film in no manner subscribes to the practice of Sati or seeks to glorify it.

So yeah, over to the latest development. The Rajput community has vehemently opposed the release of Padmavati despite Censor Board offering to clear the film if Bhansali carries out the cuts, err, modifications.

Arvind Singh Mewar, a scion of the Mewar royal family who ws a member of an advisory panel constituted by the Censor Board to review Padmavati, which was done on Thursday, has said that all the three members of the committee had strongly objected to the content portrayed in the film. "The film has real-life characters and historic figures highly revered even today by the people, especially in Mewar. What they want to show by such a movie is beyond my understanding. The movie makers are neither with the Rajputs nor the Muslims, so where lies their loyalty?" said Arvind Singh in a statement.
