As per intelligence reports, the police asked to bar the film's screening during the tourist season as it would put pressure on them.
'Padmavat' will hit the big screen on January 25.
The movie, based on the legend of Hindu Rajput queen Rani Padmini, has been facing protests from various groups, particularly Shri Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts.
The CBFC suggested few modifications in the controversial movie, which included changing of the film's title, in December last year.
