"Over 70 supporters of the Karni Sena were detained from Cumballa Hill area in south Mumbai, while protesting outside the CBFC office without police permission", Zone II Deputy Commissioner of Police Dnyaneshwar Chavan said. Padmaavat is a 200 crore film which is 50 more than Tiger Zinda Hai so it needs as many as audience as possible just to recover the budget and no one will travel out of their respective states to go and watch a film in cinema theater. But the producers are yet to make an official announcement.

Some of the key modifications suggested include those pertaining to disclaimers, pertinently adding one regarding not glorifying the practice of Sati.

Last night, the official social media pages of Padmavati also changed the title to Padmaavat.With the official handles changing their names, we are now waiting for new film stills to release. Lokendra Singh Kalvi, Karni Sena chief, had alleged that the CBFC cleared Padmaavat with a U/A certification and a few minor cuts despite opposition from the advisory panel they appointed to review the film's historical accuracy.

"CBFC's process is complete and any further news about cuts is absolutely untrue. We believe that these changes are in line with the filmic depiction of the story we wanted to tell". The period drama directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been renamed as Padmaavat after the suggested modifications given by the CBFC.

Mr. Prasoon Joshi said -"The makers have submitted the final film with agreed five modifications".

Bhansali and Viacom18 Pictures have been facing numerous hurdles in releasing the movie which, the director has said, is based on 16th-century Indian Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi's epic poem Padmaavat.

Historians are divided on whether Padmini actually existed.

Prasoon Joshi-led CBFC made a decision to give U/A certificate to the period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
