Padmavati row: CBFC likely to set up historians’ panel


Mumbai: The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) is likely to appoint a panel of historians to watch Padmavati, after the makers of the movie stated that it was partially based on historical facts, according to sources.

It may be a disappointing news for the Padmavati team, who were hoping to get a quick censor clearance after the Gujarat assembly elections.

Facing massive opposition in India, Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie ‘Padmavati’ has been cleared uncut by the British censors.

However, a functionary at Viacom 18 said there was no plan to release the film globally without it being cleared by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
