Some of the earlier speculations had stated that the film will be named as Padmavat, after the 16th century poem that the film is reportedly an adoption of.

A series of controversies, which included threat from a fringe group, led to the delayng of the launch of the film from its initial date of Dec 1. After a long haul with politicians and Censor Padmaavat was passed with a U/A certificate and necessary surgery by also changing it's name to Padmaavat.

Starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, Padmavat is all set to be released on 25 January.

Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures have accepted the above changes.

The panel comprised four historians from Rajasthan, who Karni Sena claims, advised the CBFC against clearing the film. The changes include those pertaining to disclaimers, one regarding not glorifying the practice of Sati and even relevant modifications in the song Ghoomar.
