"The makers have submitted the final film with agreed five modifications, these modifications have tried to incorporate observations and suggestions given by the advisory panel and also in keeping with the sentiments of society.
"This has already been communicated by the CBFC and a U/A certificate has been given to the film. The CBFC's process is complete and any further news about cuts etc is absolutely untrue," Joshi said in a statement to PTI.
In a release on December 30, the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) had said that the film will get a "U/A certification along with some modifications" and a likely change in the title on the basis of the attributed creative source.
"Let's refrain from utilising the CBFC's name unnecessarily," he added.
The movie, which was earlier set to arrive in theatres on December 1 last year, will now release on January 25.
Bhansali, who appeared before a parliamentary panel, has said his lavishly mounted 150 crore period drama, featuring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, is based on the 16th century epic poem "Padmavat" by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.
As protests spread across various states, the film had to miss its scheduled release.
