Asked if the film would be banned in Madhya Pradesh, Chouhan told reporters today, "tha, wo hoga (What I had said, will happen)."

However, he did not clarify.

Chouhan was talking to reporters after attending a state-level mass 'Surya Namaskar and Pranayam' event organised to mark the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda.

The film has received a clearance from the for Film Certification after the change of title and some script modifications.

While speaking to some members of the Rajput community on November 20 last year, Chouhan had made it clear that the film would not be allowed to release in the state if it contains scenes "breaching the honour" of the Rajput or "distorted facts".

"We will not tolerate any distortion of historical facts. The entire country is speaking in one voice that historical facts were distorted (in the movie)," he had said.

The film is mired in controversy after some Rajput groups opposed it.

The period romance featuring Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and in lead roles was earlier scheduled to be released on December 1.
