Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmaavat’ is running successfully at the theatres and the movie is being loved by the audience and critics as well.
The director of the film finally opened up after his film faced nation-wide protests by Rajput group led by the Karni Sena. The movie was earlier schedules to release on December 1.
‘Padmaavat’ was released on January 25 and the cast and crew are happy with the response the movie is receiving despite facing tremendous hardships.
In an interview, Bhansali told PTI "It is just an answer to the anguish that we all went through including me, the actors and the technicians. All of us were not being heard even after repeatedly saying that there is nothing wrong in the film. I realised that the best way of going ahead and fighting this is to make the film that is in my mind’’.
He also said that he was troubled, distracted but deep inside he found the strength to make the film and not let the anguish and disturbance reflect on the screen.
"The protests were illogical, they had no reasoning and there was nothing to be discussed. It had reached an obnoxious level with people sitting with swords on national television and giving death threats’’, Bhansali was quoted as saying.
‘Padmaavat’ features Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles.
