Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmavati is likely to hit the theatres soon with a changed title. The review committee, formed by the censor board, included Arvind Singh Mewar and Dr Chandramani Singh and Professor KK Singh of Universities from Jaipur.

The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has not suggested any cuts in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmavati", but has asked for five modifications for the movie to get a U/A certificate, censor board chairperson Prasoon Joshi clarified on Saturday.

Some fringe groups had accused the makers of tainting the image of their revered queen Padmavati on whom the film is supposedly based.

Joshi reportedly said that filmmakers had agreed to the CBFC's suggestions, but no official comment was issued by Viacom18.

"Padmavat" is the name of an epic poem written in the middle ages by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

The board also suggested modifications in disclaimers, pertinently adding one regarding not glorifying the practice of "Sati" and also relevant changes in the song "Ghoomar" to befit the character portrayed, the release further stated. The film was finally submitted last month and Bhansali had himself requested a commitee of historians and members of the Rajput community view the film and facilitate its release.

The period film was slated to be out on December 1 but became the subject of heated debates and protests, following which filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his producers Viacom 18 Motion Pictures had to postpone the release worldwide.

Besides Deepika Padukone being in the title role, the film stars Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, among other lead roles.

There has also been opposition over including the controversial Ghoomar song in the movie. The outrage sparked off following the rumour of dream sequence between Rani Padmini and Alauddin Khilji broke out. "They are in agreement with the modifications", the Board said. "Panel member had insights and also some reservations regarding claimed historical events and socio-cultural aspects which were duly discussed at length", the board official added.

Karni Sena has been spearheading the nationwide protests against the screening of the film. In March, unidentified people vandalised the movie sets in Maharashtra's Kolhapur district.
