I Know ‘Padmavati’ Will Come out & People Will See the Art: PC
Priyanka Chopra backs Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’.
Home girl, Priyanka Chopra is now more of a Hollywood girl. Her busy schedule keeps her away from India and consequently Bollywood. The coveted Tinsel town star was back in the bay and she dazzled the audience with her performance at an award show, recently. Chopra also made sure that her strong views on the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, which is in the eye of the storm are heard.
“I have an incredible relationship with Sanjay sir and I admire him tremendously. I know this film will come out and people will see the art behind it. They just need to make sure that everything is sorted. I will always stand not only by Sanjay sir but also Deepika, Ranveer and Shahid for the film.”Priyanka Chopra
Priyanka was one of the leads in Bhansali’s Bajirao Mastani and also appeared in a song in his Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ramleela.
According to Bhansali, the film is based on the poem, Padmavat by Malik Muhammad Jaysi. But fringe groups are convinced despite evidence of a dream sequence between Rani Padmini and Khilji. Citing ‘distortion of facts’, the groups demanded a ban on the film and even made violent threats to the actors and the makers.
Bhansali’s Padmavati awaits a clearance certificate from the Central Board of Film Certification. Reports suggest that the makers will announce the new release date as after the clearance. The film release has been indefinitely deferred last month.
