Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s much talked film Padmavati has been a prey to controversies ever since its release date was announced. The Rajputs and Karni Sena have protested against the film by claiming that this movie is a distortion of history.
Shahid Kapoor who was present at the IFFI 2017 opening ceremony in Goa, finally broke his silence on the Karni Sena’s threats given to behead Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone.
The actor said that he is very optimistic about the film, “I am sure after people watch Padmavati, all this will be forgotten”.Karni Sena announced that a bounty of Rs 5 crore will be given to anyone who will behead Deepika and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Speaking about it, Shahid said, “Any kind of conversation which is violent in nature is not very nice, is not in good taste and it is absolutely uncalled for and unfortunate.”
Shahid Kapoor also ensured that the film is made for the entire country. The Udta Punjab star said, “When Padmavati will come, it will come out in full force and there is nothing in the film which is unacceptable”.
Padmavati is yet not certified from the Central Board of Film Certification, as the board returned the movie to the producers saying that the application for the certificate was “incomplete.” About the pending certification of this movie, Shahid added, “I believe in the process of certification and I am very confident that eventually Padmavati will come out and it will come out in full force. I don’t think there is anything in the film that is you know unacceptable or that is not in good taste. I think our Constitution says you are innocent until proven guilty.”
Despite all these controversies, Indian audience is waiting eagerly to watch this movie on big screen!
