Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has raised the objections over Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directional venture “Padmavati”. As we know the film is under a lot of controversies, the movie is presently paused by censor board citing “technical deficiencies” in it. The film is actually scheduled to release on 1st December. While the Padmavati release date might be postponed to another date as a result of censor board’s objections over it.
Padmavati Release Date May Postpone Due to CBFC Objections
Central Board of Film Certification has also mentioned that Padmavati is yet to be reviewed. The makers have applied for censor certification on 16th November and it is yet to be re-verified by the sensor board. There is no harm in stopping the film without releasing but it might get delayed on the release date.
“It will be incorrect to say that the film has been rejected. The CBFC has only sent Padmavati’s application back to the filmmakers because of certain technical deficiencies in the form. Once the filmmaker returns the completed application, the film will be reviewed as per the rules.”

Padmavati Censor Report
The CBFC board takes atleast 68 days to give the rating for a film. Initially, it reviews the application, and after it reviews the content of the film and in the final phase the board suggests the changes. If no more changes found, the board issues any certification like U, U/A, A for the film.
What is likely to have been a sticking point is part 7(a) of the form, which asks filmmakers to “specify whether the film is based on fiction or true incident or true story or mythology or epic or devotional or biographical and if so the source from which it has been made may be mentioned (sic)”.
After CBFC rating has been issued for a film, the film can be released on screens. In case of Padmavati also, the sensor board is following the chronological order of censor rating. Hence it will take some more time to release in the theatres.
