Padmaavat row: Karni Sena members protest outside CBFC office; get detained

"Over 70 supporters of the Karni Sena were detained from Cumballa Hill area in south Mumbai, while protesting outside the CBFC office without police permission", Zone II Deputy Commissioner of Police Dnyaneshwar Chavan said. But the producers are yet to make an official announcement. After CBFC's approval, makers of Padmaavat changed the title of the film on its official handles on social media including Twitter and Instagram.However, Padmaavat's clearance by the CBFC hasn't satisfied the Rajasthan and Himachal Pradesh governments, that have banned the film in its respective states. 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. 300 cuts can change the entire narration of a story.

- Change the disclaimer to one that clearly does not claim historical accuracy. The Ghoomar song was also asked to be changed to fit the character in it. "We believe that these changes are in line with the filmic depiction of the story we wanted to tell".

"The makers have submitted the final film with agreed five modifications".

Ahead of the release of the film on 25 January, Karni Sena have started the protest on Friday in Mumbai by gheraoing the office of the CBFC, which is chaired by lyricist and scriptwriter Prasoon Joshi.

Earlier, Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie was slated to release on December 1, but postponed due to the controversy over its plot.

This film got into a controversy after Rajput groups claimed that it distorts history.

The Rajput outfit had first expressed concern after Ranveer Singh - one of the three lead actors of the movie - made a casual statement back in July 2016. The historians were astonished whether Padmini actually existed.

With both the directors-Sanjay Leela Bhansali and R Balki being phenomenal in their work, it will be interesting to see which film manages to spell more magic on the audience as well as the critics.
