The film is now banned in Rajasthan and is expected to be released in theatres on January 25, 2018.

"Padmavat", which was to earlier release as "Padmavati" on 1 December a year ago, has been embroiled in a controversy over alleged distortion of historical facts.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), headed by Prasoon Joshi, recently cleared Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavat with a U/A certificate, after various changes and cuts were made, including the change of title from Padmavati.

They were even asked to add two disclaimers - one that clearly does not claim historical accuracy, and another which makes the point that the film in no manner subscribes to the practice of Sati or seeks to glorify it.

The film, cleared by the CBFC after five modifications and renamed from "Padmavati" to "Padmavat" and now titled "Padmaavat", is scheduled to release on January 25 across India. It has also suggested relevant modifications in the song Ghoomar to befit the character portrayed.

"Padmaavat" producers have accepted the changes.

While Padmaavat release has been banned in BJP-ruled Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh, Goa on Monday clarified that the movie could be released there.

The report further read that "Padmavat" director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been instructed to delete all references to Delhi, Chittorgarh and Mewar from the film and that "buzz is that they (the modifications) have resulted in as many as 300 cuts". However, a fringe group called Rajput Karni Sena protested against the alleged distortion of history in the film and threatened to not allow the movie to release.

This is not the first time a movie's title has been a figure of controversy. The board has also given a U/A certificate. The official social media pages have confirmed that the film has been named as Padmaavat.

Padmaavat stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmini of Chittor, who committed jauhar (self-immolation) after Alauddin Khilji invaded her fort. Shahid plays Rawal Ratan Singh, Deepika's husband.
