Karni Sena issues fresh threat, says won't allow release of 'Padmavat'

Deepika Padukone in'Ghoomar song from'Padmavati

On December 30, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chose to give the movie UA certificate with the suggestion that the title of the movie be changes to "Padmavat" from "Padmavati".

Meanwhile, more than 100 Shri Rajput Karni Sena workers were detained on Friday for protesting outside the CBFC office in Mumbai in connection with the release of "Padmavat".

A Karni Sena member also met up Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat in Dehradun, and asked him not to screen the film in the state. Among the suggested modifications was that of a title change as well.

The censor board cleared the film with a U/A certificate despite protests from the members of the Rajput Karni Sena. The disclaimer before any film says that this film is a work of fiction and one of the fundamental human rights is the right to freedom of expression.

"Padmavati", now renamed as "Padmavat", was earlier scheduled to release on December 1, 2017, but continuous protests and CBFC fiasco forced the makers to shift the date.
