The Film Censorship Board of Malaysia (LPF) has banned the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus "Padmaavat", giving the film a "not relevant" tag and placing the movie in the "not approved" list. Aziz in a statement said, "The storyline of the film touches on the sensitivities of Islam".

Arjun Sampath, President of Hindu Makkal Katchi, who had protested its release, has since lauded Padmaavat upon watching the film, noting that it a must-watch for everyone. Mohd Zamberi Abdul Aziz has said the lavishly-mounted film was not cleared as it might offend the Muslims in the country.

Post-release, the film has had mixed reviews.

The film distributors in Malaysia are expected to appeal the decision of LPF to a Film Appeals Committee on January 30th. It has been criticised by some sections for glorifying not just Jauhar and also for showing Alauddin Khilji as a demon-like figure.

Malaysia has a history of banning several films on various grounds. In Malaysia, Padmaavat is the second movie to get the axe this year, following "Those Long Haired Nights" a Filipino movie on three transgendered prostitutes. Malaysia past year also prosecuted filmmaker Lena Hendry for holding a private screening of a documentary "No Fire Zone: The Killing Fields of Sri Lanka". Malaysia's Censor Board has the ultimate power in terms of allowing or disallowing the screening of a film in the country, unlike in India.

Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in the lead roles. Chairman of the Pakistan Central Board of Film Censors Mobashir Hasan had said, "The CBFC is not biased in arts, creativity and healthy entertainment", IANS reported.
