According to a release issued by the CBFC, the board had a meeting of their examining committee on December 28 and chose to give the film a "UA certification along with some modifications and likely change of the film's title on the basis the attributed material/creative source". Despite the clearance by the censor board, the members of the group have demanded a complete ban on the film saying that they can not bear any insult against the Rajput queen.
"The makers have submitted the final film with agreed five modifications". According to the police while director Sanjay Leela Bhansali was put under security cover after protesters from alleged Rajput fringe groups vandalised the sets a few months ago, the actors - Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were extended security in November after the self-proclaimed guardians of the Rajput clan, Shri Karni Sena threatened to physically harm the actress.
Karni Sena President Sukhdev Singh Gogamedi, who had called for a gherao of the CBFC office today, had said that the CBFC had been running ever since the time of Britishers and sisn't know how to work. The board has also given a U/A certificate. Earlier the CBFC on Tuesday refuted reports that it had asked for cuts and declared that the movie was given a U/A certificate.
Joshi expressed his disappointment that CBFC was unnecessarily dragged into the controversy.

On December 30, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) made a decision to give the movie UA certificate with the suggestion that the title of the movie be changes to "Padmavat" from "Padmavati". "Addition of a disclaimer which clearly makes the point that the film in no manner subscribes to the practice of Sati or seeks to glorify it", the statement said.

As of now, Padmavati has been renamed Padmavat, after Muhammad Malik Jayasi's 16th Century epic poem on which the film is supposedly based.
