By tradition, it has been observed that no film which releases in the first quarter of any year has gone on to do record business. Whether it’s Dhoom 3, PK, Dangal, Sultan, Kick, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge or Sholay all these films were not released in the first quarter of the year. It’s time for ‘Padmaavat’ to break this myth and make some box office collection records in the first quarter of the year. It is being speculated that due to the fear associated with the controversy, people will not come to theaters in the initial days of the release which can hugely affect its Box Office Collection. It would not be wrong to say that due to the controversy over the movie, the entire Bollywood film industry has been at a loss. According to the trade experts, this controversy could have been avoided but it was not handled properly which resulted in a loss for producers as well as the other filmmakers.

The film was surrounded by controversy initially because Rajput Karni Sena had said that history has been distorted in this film, so we will not allow the film to be released. Rajput Karni Sena hate campaign caught up slowly and later an announcement came from BJP that this film will not be allowed to be released in BJP ruled state. It’s a fact that until this time no one had seen the film.
The Central Board of Examining Committee saw the movie along with the special panel appointed by CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi. The film was passed with slight modifications. The surprising part is that the CBFC examining committee and the special advisory panel, nobody found a single scene objectionable in the film. Padmaavat gets U/A certificate without any cuts.
CBFC asked the producers of the film to make some modifications in the film which are:-
- The name of the movie will be changed from Padmavati to Padmaavat (because the source for the film is the poem by the Padmaavat)
- A disclaimer will go where the filmmaker will announce that they do not endorse the ‘Sati Practice’. Another disclaimer will also go that this film is not based on historical facts.
- Names of the historic place will either be muted or have to take the names of other places.
- Some visuals of the ‘Ghoomar Song’ have to be changed in which Deepika Padukone is flashing her stomach and the back.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali had agreed to carry out all these modifications because CBFC has not asked to cut a single scene from the movie.
There were three members of the special advisory panel formed by CBFC Chief Prasoon Joshi including Arvind Singh, Chandramani Singh and Dr. K K Singh from Jaipur University. Besides the special advisory panel, Prasoon Joshi and the examining committee saw the film.
