After Deepika Padukone starrer Padmavati‘s release date was deferred, the controversy seems to have fizzled out to some extent and there hasn’t been much news of it for quite some time now. After being knocked by the CBFC for its historic discrepancies and for exhibiting the film for media personalities before the Censor Board, makers of the film have been in jitters with its certification. And so, a revised version of the film was been readied and the film’s application was submitted again on November 28.

“The new application is very consciously worded in legalese, and the CBFC is trying to decode the various levels of claims and disclaims in the application about the historic authenticity of the film. This is taking time. But the film will be viewed by the board’s Examining Committee in the coming week, and we will have to organise a panel of historians to examine the content,” a source from  CBFC told The Asian Age.

Regarding the viewing of the film, we earlier reported that the government has demanded the film to be reviewed by eminent historians to check the veracity of facts in the film. It was the Central Board of Film Certification that requested the I&B ministry to provide them with historians who can help verify the film’s content for its facts, and so the Smriti Irani-led  I&B ministry wrote a letter to the HRD ministry regarding the same. Sources close to the leading daily also suggested that the names of the people in the panel will be finalised soon and CBFC will be evaluating the film along with them. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial stars Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor. Keep following this space for latest updates on the much talked about film.
