The film's title was then changed from "Padmavati" to "Padmaavat".

Karni Sena President Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, who had called for a gherao of the CBFC office today, had said that the CBFC had been running ever since the time of Britishers and sisn't know how to work. We firmly deny all speculation on extensive cuts to the film and want to reiterate that only the above changes and disclaimers (as) per guidance of the CBFC have been made.

Padmavat, which was set to release on December 1st, will be released on January 25th.

Here are the five changes that Prasoon Joshi-led board has suggested.
