Deepika Padukone– Shahid Kapoor– Ranveer Singh starrer Padmavati is right now in the centre of the controversies. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali magnum opus which was slated to release on December 1, 2017 is delayed and the makers are quite worried. What’s more worrisome are the death threats given to the leading lady Deepika Padukone and maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The threats were to behead Bhansali and also reward the person Rs 5 crores to those who chop off Deepika’s nose. This has shocked the lead actor Shahid Kapoor.

During a recent award ceremony, Shahid Kapoor told in an interview, “It’s terrible. I didn’t expect this — so much being spoken about a lady. I am very shocked with that.” Also, there a meet was held between the makers as well as a parliamentary panel. Talking about this discussion, Shahid said,” It’s strange the way things have happened, but I don’t think they have worsened. We are surprised that it’s taking longer than anyone had anticipated. The release date has been deferred. People have chosen to make their decisions before seeing the film. I have been saying from the beginning that everyone should decide only after they’ve seen the film. I’ve been urging people to not have any preconceived notions about the film, which are not based on facts. I think facts can be discussed only when people have seen the movie.” (ALSO READ: Padmavati Row: 5 Revelations About The Sanjay Leela Bhansali vs Parlimentary Panel Meet) Also Read - Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani Completes 8 Years: From Friendship Goals To Dreamy Love, Why It is a Classic!
