Padmavati row: Shatrughan Sinha slams Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Postado Dezembro 08, 2017

Sinha was critical of Bhansali at an event where he was honoured by the Rajput Karni Sena, the same fringe group that has been opposing Padmavati tooth and nail.

The actor also feels that it's not fair to judge a film without watching it.

Sinha had earlier questioned PM Narendra Modi and megastar Amitabh Bachchan's silence over the "burning" issue of the film "Padmavati".

Back then, Sinha had himself refused to comment on the matter, saying that he would speak once Bhansali had spoken. Deepika Padukone-Ranveer Singh-Shahid Kapoor starrer is one of the most awaited film of the year and its release is still hanging in the balance.

According to Deccan Chronicle, Central Board of Film Certification has requested the government to bring forward historians who are well versed with the story of Queen Padmavati, and in particular it's ballad by 16th century poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi, in which Bhansali has based his film from. However, without obtaining the censor board certificate, the makers held a private screening for a few TV journalists. The violent threats that came after forced the makers to delay the release of the film.
