'Padmavati' cleared by British Censor Board, but makers want nod from India's CBFC

Friday, November 24, 2017

'Padmavati' has been cleared by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) without any cuts, but the producers say they are not planning to release the film without the Indian censor board's go-ahead, sources said yesterday.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film was given a 12A rating by the BBFC which passed it for audiences in the UK without any cuts. The 12A rating mandates that the film cannot be viewed by a child under the age of 12 unless accompanied by an adult.

“'Padmavati' (12A) moderate violence, injury detail," stated the official website of the British Censor Board. "All known versions of this work passed uncut," it said.

However, sources at Viacom 18 said they are not planning to release the film anywhere in the world without the requisite clearance from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). The lavishly mounted film, starring Deepika Padukone in the title role, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, is a joint production by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions.

"The film has been cleared by the UK censor board without any cuts. But we are waiting for censor clearance in India. Till then we will not release the film anywhere," a source told PTI.

"As the film was supposed to release on December 1, there are over 50 countries where this process (of certification) is on," he said.

However, Bhansali said in an appeal that there was no dream sequence between Rajput queen Padmini and Allauddin Khilji and that it was all a rumour.
