Deepika Padukone, who is gearing up for 'Padmavati', has criticized the recent attack on the sets of the movie in Kolhapur.
The diva stated that these attacks on 'Padmavati' sets are childish and people should give Sanjay Leela Bhansali a chance to tell the story.
Her statement came in wake of the attack on 'Padmavati' on the set location where the set was vandalized and burnt.
Talking about the same, Deepika stated “Sanjay Leela Bhansali is someone who lives for cinema and I've never met anyone more passionate. I know for a fact that he will take everything in a positive way and pour it back into the movie. He's here to tell a story through his film and glorify Padmavati…These complaints are attacks are childish and based on some tabloid news. Media should be mindful of these things. It's gossipy for them but look at the end result! People could've died.”
Interestingly, this was the second attack on 'Padmavati' sets.
Earlier, Rajput Karni Sena has assaulted Bhansali on the sets in Jaipur, over the alleged misinterpretation of facts in 'Padmavati'.
Talking about the movie, it happens to be based on Rajput princess 'Padmavati', wherein Deepika will be seen playing the titular role opposite Shahid Kapoor who will essay the role of Raja Rawal Ratan.
The movie will also star Ranveer Singh as antagonist Allauddin Khilji. 'Padmavati' is expected to release on Novemeber 17 this year.
