We recently brought to you the changes and suggestions offered by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) to the filmmakers of 'Padmavati' after reviewing the film and one of those alterations included that the movie's name be changed from 'Padmavati' to 'Padmavat'. And many brought up the question as to will Deepika Padukone's role be affected by the title change?
Clearing the confusion over the alterations ordered by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), a source from the board said, “Since the film’s makers claim that their film is based on the poem titled Padmavat by Sufi poet Malik Mohammed Jaisi, we asked for the title to be altered. This doesn’t affect Deepika Padukone’s character.”
In the meanwhile, we are still waiting as to whether the filmmakers will accept the changes asked for by the Examining Committee of the CBFC. “We hear conflicting reports on this from different people. While some claim that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is okay with the changes, others say he is determined to fight it out and not change a single frame in the film,” said a source.
