Padmavati: What can Sanjay Leela Bhansali do for a no-protest release?

Ranveer Singh in LA

In response, Joshi on Friday said it was unfortunate to see a personal point of view expressed by an advisory panel member of the CBFC. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has made a attractive film and I hope he is protected by the people who understand that creativity is a form of expression. "We have respect for Bhansali as an individual and artist", Joshi told IANS.

But looks like a good news has come for the team of Padmavati as the Home Minister of the state has assured that the film will release in Rajasthan. Although Bhansali has repeatedly assured that the movie does not have any scene that would hurt the sentiments of any community, the outrage against the film has not died down. Recently, Sanjay Leela Bhansali addressed the controversy by saying that there is no dream sequence between Rani Padmini and Alauddin Khilji in the film and they have made this movie with a responsibility and kept the honour to Rajputs. "So I feel we need to look into it if there is any worldwide conspiracy behind it.", Swamy told ANI when asked about the Padmavati controversy. I have already rejected this claim and also given written proof of this. It can be easily said that the fans will not be disappointed with Sanjay Leela Bhansali as this is exactly the spectacle which is expected from the ace director.

As the certification by the Censor Board is yet to be granted qua the film, hence it was premature for the petitioners to seek the relief as prayed. There was no mention of Padmavati before Malik Muhammad Jayasi wrote the "Padmavat".

Various groups, majority from the Rajpur community, have accused Bhansali of "distorting" historical facts in the film which features Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.
