“Deepika Padukone Is Still Padmavati”


The change  in the film’s  title from Padmavati to Padmavat is not applicable to Deepika Padukone.

 She will still be called ‘Padmavati’ in the film.

Clearing the confusion over the  alterations ordered  by the CBFC a source  from the CBFC says, “Since the  film’s makers claim that their film is based on the poem entitled Padmavat by  Sufi  poet Malik Mohammed Jaisi we  asked for the title to be  altered. Otherwise this doesn’t affect Deepika Padukone’s character.She will continue to be named Padmavati in the  film.”

In the meanwhile the  Padmavati team  is yet to accept the changes asked for  by the Examining Committee of the CBFC.

“We hear conflicting reports  on this  from different  people.While some claim that Bhansali is ok with the changes others say he is determined  to fight  it out  and not change  a single frame in  the  film,” says a source.
