While Padmavati controversy takes new twists and turns, there are reports coming in about a new, second trailer on anvil. As of today, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has met the parliamentary panel, along with CBFC chief Prasoon Joshi, where no conclusion has been reached upon. Bhansali has been asked various questions – did he plan the controversy for publicity; did he distort historical facts; did he agree on showing the film to the protesting members of Karni Sena and Rajput groups; and more… The filmmaker has been asked to submit his side of the story in writing and the panel will consider another meeting after taking a look at it. Long wait ahead for Team Padmavati and fans who are waiting to watch the grand affair unveil on the big screen. Also Read - Arjun Kapoor In The Weekend Interview: I Am Not A Bad Actor | Exclusive
We still don’t know when the film will release. BJP and supporters want a ban while members of Congress and Trinamool Congress are opposing the ban – obviously, politics is at play. Karni Sena Chief Lokendra Kalvi in his various recent interviews has cleared his stance that he is in no mood to relent. He is also not interested in seeing the film now to get clarity on the content and if Padmavati has anything that deserves objection. How do you clear the air in such a scenario? From what we hear, Bhansali’s team is planning to come out with a second trailer. Also Read - Watch Interview: Arjun Kapoor on Film Choices, Reuniting With Ranveer Singh And Ek Villain 2
Word is that the trailer will focus on the life and love of Maharawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor) and Rani Padmini (Deepika Padukone). It will also have war scenes that show Rajputi aan, baan aur shaan. Interestingly, there will not be even one scene or a single glimpse or a singular mention of Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh). Looking at how Karni Sena and its tribe has their eyes on all things Padmavati, there is no doubt that they will closely scrutinize the trailer and dissect every frame, reducing every bit to the tiniest detail.

Perhaps, that’s how Bhansali will show the easily outraged gang out there that they are better off letting the film release and make the world see what real Rajputs, their honour and valour are all about. Let’s hope that Padmavati second trailer shuts up all the tongues spewing venom against the project and brings an end to the ongoing, obnoxious circus!
