Padmavati: Members Of Rajput Community Protests Outside Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Office

While interacting with fans and media, the actor said the whole cast and crew have invested their sweat and blood and which is why this film is so close to his heart.

As the release date of "Padmavati" draws near, the protests against the film are getting louder but looks like a solution is on the horizon. He said, "We have learnt that there is a dream sequence in the movie wherein Rani Padmavati has been shown romancing Allaudin Khilji". The actress said that films are a form of art and everyone has the freedom of speech. I just feel that violence is a complete no. What have we gotten ourselves into? In the recent development, Shahid, who plays Maharawal Ratan Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum-opus, has urged everyone to give "the film a chance". "I've been saying this since a long time". However, they would do so after the film is passed by the Censor Board.

Salman Khan who is gearing up for "Tiger Zinda Hai" spoke in support Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming "Padmavati". We have tried to keep everyone's feelings and interests in mind. "We will respect whatever people think of the film but you should see it first". "He makes very lovely and excellent films".

Recently, the Supreme Court refused to entertain a plea seeking a stay on the release of Padmavati and said the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) considers all aspects before granting certificate to any film. Various bodies such as CINTAA, IFTDA, Screenwriters Association, All India Mazdoor Union, and others have chose to observe one-minute silence on Nov 16 to show their solidarity with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in Film City, Goregaon. Later, the sets were torched near Mumbai and costumes were burnt. His co-star Deepika was also present at the event. In the past too, during the shoot, he was assaulted by activists of the Rajput community group, Karni Sena.
