"The makers have submitted the final film with agreed five modifications, these modifications have tried to incorporate observations and suggestions given by the advisory panel and also in keeping with the sentiments of society".
Padmavat is scheduled to be released on 25 January, and it will be clashing with Padman, which stars Akshay Kumar, Sonam Kapoor and Radhika Apte. By opposing the film's release, Ms Raje is opposing the decision of the Centre. "For us, the release of any film means it has been certified by the censor board (Central Board of Film Certification)". Scindia has already written to Smriti Irani (Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting) in this regard.
Parrikar also said that the state police had expressed apprehensions about the film being screened in Goa during the peak tourism season in December, when a significant chunk of the uniformed personnel are busy discharging law and order duties.
However, with this new development, the film has landed itself in an unexpected innuendo of sorts, that celebs and twitterati just can't seem to get enough of.
Prasoon Joshi, the CBFC Chief issued a certificate for screening in the last week of December after suggesting a few modifications.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president Ashok Parnami also said that the film Padmavat would not be released in Rajasthan.
Babbar said: "This is a conflict between the central and state governments".
The movie, based on the legend of Hindu Rajput queen Rani Padmini, has been facing protests from various groups, particularly Shri Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts.
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".
