Earlier, appearing before the parliamentarian panel, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali mentioned that the movie - featuring Bollywood stars like Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh - is based on "Padmavat" - an epic 16 century poem by Malik Muhammed Jayasi. It consisted of the regular committee members, along with CBFC officials and a special advisory panel in presence of Chairman Prasoon Joshi. Though the producers have not issued a statement yet, a senior executive at Viacom 18, which has produced the film, told Mirror that Bhansali and the banner will adhere to the suggested alterations and the editing of the film will commence immediately.
The film, which was to release on December 1, has been embroiled in controversy over alleged distortion of facts regarding Rajput history, with Rajput outfits and some backed by the BJP, actively protesting its release.
Historians are divided about whether the queen existed, but many Rajputs believe she did and accuse Bhansali of portraying her in a bad light.
