The period drama which will release in Hindi Tamil and Telugu will release with a U/A certificate after incorporating five modifications -- including title change -- suggested by the censor board.

Bhansali said in a statement: " Padmaavat is a dream come true for me. I have always been fascinated by the stories of honour valour and vigour of our great Rajput warriors that have been captured so beautifully in our literature and this movie is my homage to those glorious stories.

"I would also like to thank the entire film fraternity for supporting Viacom18 and Bhansali Productions through the entire production and pre-release phase and hope they like the film they so supported."
