Apart from changing the film's title, the modifications included disclaimer that does not claim historical accuracy, modifications in the song "Ghoomar" to make the depiction befitting the character being portrayed, correcting incorrect/misleading references to historical places, and a disclaimer that says the film doesn't subscribes to the practice of Sati or seeks to glorify it. "The state government does not have a problem to screen it in the cinema halls in Goa", Parrikar said even as he added that, in case of any law and order issue, the state would look into it.

Talking to ANI, Karni Sena member Mahipal Singh Makrana had said, "We have a very clear stand since day one that we want this film to be banned".

"Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures, as producers, have accepted and have made all the above changes". Opposing the CBFC's decision to release the film, a Karni Sena leader said, "Merely changing the name of the film isn't enough".
