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.

In an official statement, the producers said, "We appreciate the balanced and considered approach that CBFC has taken to address this situation".

Some of the key modifications suggested include those pertaining to disclaimers, pertinently adding one regarding not glorifying the practice of Sati.

The panel comprised four historians from Rajasthan, who Karni Sena claims, advised the CBFC against clearing the film. It is co-produced by Bhansali and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures.

The disaster followed a violent rainstorm that dumped up to 15cm of water onto areas north-west of Los Angeles. Josie Gower held onto a door frame when the terrifying river of mud rushed inside her Montecito home.

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".

Rajput groups such as the Karni Sena have staged rampant protests against the film, alleging that the makers distorted history and filmed a dream sequence between Rani Padmini and Alauddin Khilji in spite of Bhansali denying allegations as such, consistently.

"Asked if the controversy over the magnum opus put a dampener on his professional life in 2017, the 36-year-old actor said the year held a lot of excitement for him as he got to be a part of a "memorable" film like "Padmavati". However, CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi told PTI, "The makers submitted the final film with agreed five modifications, these have tried to incorporate observations and suggestions given by the advisory panel and also in keeping with the sentiments of society".

This movie has Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in leading roles. Padmaavat clashes at the box office with Akshay Kumar's PadMan.
