Similarly, there are many more such movies that changed their original titles once the CBFC objected, let’s check the five of these:
1). Padmaavat – The Sanjay Leela Bhansali was amidst the huge controversy when it was released in the screens. Fringe group objected a lot on the queen Padmavati was seen dancing that made the Censor Board ask for a change in its title.
2). Why Cheat India – the original title of the film was Cheat India and when the makers presented before the censor board, they had some reservations on its title. According to the board, the title seems to be misleading and hence they changed it to Why Cheat India from Cheat India.
3). Loveyatri – The film’s title was changed from Loveratri to Loveyarti as one of the complaints was hurled over it that stated that the title is misleading and hurting to the religious sentiments of the Hindu community celebrating the fest of Navratra.
