Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati continues to remain under ambiguity with an indefinite date for release. The Padmavati filmmakers and producers count on CBFC for further instructions of release. Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have been given police protection following the death threats received by them. Undoubtedly, this has tensed the Padmavati team but they remain confident about the film’s release.
At a recent event, Deepika entered and exited from the venue’s kitchen. She won an award at the event and while speaking to a media channel, Deepika got emotional. She spoke about being fearless and following your heart. However, Deepika appeared to be low as she interacted with the media. Was she under the weather or has the controversy revolving around film Padmavati taken its toll on the actress?
About the protests and threats, she said, “It's appalling, it's absolutely appalling. What have we gotten ourselves into? And where have we reached as a nation? We have regressed.”
"The only people we are answerable to is the censor board, and I know and I believe that nothing can stop the release of this film," said Deepika, adding that the film industry's support symbolises how "this is not about 'Padmavati'... We're fighting a much bigger battle"
The makers are yet to announce another date for the film’s release. Deepika will start shooting for her next film based on Sapna Didi in March giving fuel to speculations that Padmavati will release in February. Padmavati has received the support of the film fraternity and we hope the magnum opus hits the screen soon.Read More
