Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat has been speculated to have undergone major cuts for getting a certificate from CBFC!
The controversies around the film Padmaavat seems to have no stopping. Recently, the Deepika Padukone starrer has been making headlines as it got certified by the CBFC. The film’s certification was due for a long time and it was one of the reasons why the film could not release earlier.
But now that the film has received the U/A certificate, there are speculations doing rounds that the board has made as many as 300 cuts to the film. Now that’s not a joke. 300 cuts can change the entire narration of a story. But it has turned out that it was just a rumour as a spokesperson from Viacom18 Media Pvt Ltd has clarified on the same.
The spokesperson said, “We appreciate the balanced and considered approach that the CBFC has taken to address this situation.”
The person added on saying, “Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures, as producers, have accepted and have made all the above changes. We believe that these changes are in line with the filmic depiction of the story we wanted to tell.”
The CBFC had suggested five changes in the film including the changing of title and putting additional disclaimers.
Denying the reports of 300 cuts, the person said, “We firmly deny all speculation on extensive cuts to the film and want to reiterate that only the above changes and disclaimers per guidance of the CBFC have been made. We have full faith in the CBFC and in the transparent, fair and inclusive process that has been followed.”
The Viacom spokesperson also said that an official announcement will be made very soon on the new release date of the film. But according to reports, Padmavat is going to release on January 25. And will be clashing with Akshay Kumar’s Pad Man.
