Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus Padmavati on Friday was sent back to the filmmaker by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) citing technical reasons.

Sources said, "The movie will be reviewed as per set norms once it is sent back to the CBFC after sorting out the issue."

The film has been facing protests from various group for allegedly tampering with historical facts.

Earlier, the Supreme Court had rejected a petition filed against the release of 'Padmavati', saying the CBFC was yet to issue a certificate to the movie.

The top court had added that the CBFC was an independent body and the court should not intervene in their jurisdiction.

Reacting to the physical threats that have been issued to the makers, filmmaker Madhur Bhandarkar said violence of any kind was condemnable, adding the CBFC should watch the movie and decide if the movie had anything objectionable.

The Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha members also protested against the film in Jaipur and filed signatures with blood to be sent to the CBFC.

The period drama, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, has been facing protests from various groups, including Shri Rajput Karni Sena, is slated to release on December 1.
