Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmavati’ is facing many troubles since it was announced. Few days ago, The BJP and Congress have demanded that the film be banned if it distorts history. Then, Rajput Karni Sena led a protest march from Chittorgarh’s Padmavati Jauhar Kund.
Not only this, the theatre owners in Rajasthan refuse to screen the film because they are afraid of damage to their property.
According to reports, the protesters allege that the film comprises love scenes between the Rajput Queen and Alauddin Khilji, essayed by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh respectively.
However, now Sanjay Leela Bhansali came out and cleared that here’s no dream sequence between Rani Padmini & Allauddin Khilji in the film.[ecp code=”4″]
The director shared a video and clarify all the things. He said, “Hello. I, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, want to tell you something through this video. I have made the film Padmavati with a lot of integrity, responsibility and effort. I have always been inspired by Rani Padmavati’s story, and this film salutes her valour and sacrifice. But because of some rumours, this film has become a subject of debate. The rumour is that in this film, there is a dream sequence between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji. I have denied this before and provided written proof of the same then, and today, through this video, I am reiterating that in our film, there is no scene between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji that will hurt any sentiments. We have made this film very responsibly, keeping in mind the Rajput dignity and respect. I would like to reiterate once again that our film has no dream sequence between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji or any other scene which will hurt anyone. Thank you.”
Watch the video here:
‘Padmavati’ is based on Rani Padmini, the legendary Rajput queen of the kingdom of Chittorgarh, to be played by Deepika. It also features Shahid as her husband, king Rawal Ratan Singh, and probably the most impressive of them all – the invader Alauddin Khilji, essayed with sheer ferocity by Ranveer.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the film is slated to release on December 1.
