There seems to be no end to controversies around Padmavati. Latest is, following all the protests and threats by various Hindu and Rajput groups, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has finally decided to hold a special screening of the film for some members of the Rajput community. The move is to ensure that no one is left with any doubts about the content of the film and it sees a smooth release on its slated date, December 1.
So far, the film has been accused of distorting historical facts. The Rajput community alleged that the film will bring dishonour and disrespect to their queen, Rani Padmini. The lead star cast including Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor and the director have been from time to time releasing statements to clear the air around the various controversies but to little help. What does one do in such a scenario? Do you lose sleep over a controversy which is based on assumptions? Ranveer, who plays Alauddin Khilji, seems to have aced the perfect reaction to such situations. Currently on a mini vacation abroad, the actor posted a picture on Instagram which reveals his state of mind right now as the row over Padmavati continues. Check out the post below:
The film has already faced delays after the sets were vandalised at two occasions. The post production work on the epic drama further delayed the film. Amid all the controversies surrounding the film, buzz in the industry has it that the film might see a further delay if not all who have a problem with the film and its content come on board. The film hasn’t been certified as yet since a member of the CBFC too highlighted some discrepancies in historical facts in the film. Let’s hope that after this special screening, all the doubts get cleared and the film gets a smooth release.
