Among the suggested modifications was that of a title change as well. It has been at the centre of controversies for past one year, ever since Bhansali began shooting in January last year in Jaipur.

A senior Home Department official told a news agency on Wednesday that there was no order as such to ban the proposed release of the film in the state.

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.

A Karni Sena member also met up Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat in Dehradun, and asked him not to screen the film in the state.

Here are the 5 changes suggested by CBFC. The CBFC recommended several modifications to the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, before passing it with a U/A certificate.

The modification includes changing the disclaimer that the movie does not claim historical accuracy and added that the movie does not subscribe to the Sati system practice.

Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar had also said they would "look into" their demand citing Goa could not afford law and order issues in the tourist season. But according to reports, Padmavat is going to release on January 25.

In the case of Udta Punjab, producers Ekta Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap went to the Bombay High Court to get their film cleared (only a few minor cuts were imposed), but that's not the case with Padmavat, whose delay has already cost a significant amount to producers Viacom Motion Pictures. Amidst all the violence and agitation on the surface as the movie is nearing its release date, states are being extra cautious about the audience's reaction.

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.

The panel comprised four historians from Rajasthan, who Karni Sena claims, advised the CBFC against clearing the film.
