Padmavati row: Salman Khan and Farhan Akhtar back Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Padmavati marks 'trilogy' of Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali

Deepika Padukone: “Where have we reached, we have regressed as a nation”

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has written to the Election Commission to postpone the release of "Padmavati" in order to avoid collision with the Gujarat Elections, scheduled for December 9 and 14. To the latest, the protesters have broken into the theater and destroyed the assets there.

About 30 people were arrested in the case.

On the other hand, a large number of Rajput women in traditional dress also protested and many of them tore off posters of the film. The theater has stopped screening the trailer for now.

Deepika says that the makers of the movie are only answerable to the Central Board Of The Film Certification (CBFC) and she strongly says that nothing can stop the release of the movie.

Deepika, who stars as Padmini, told news agency IANS on Tuesday, "Where have we reached as a nation?"

Bhansali has repeatedly rebuffed the rumours about an alleged dream sequence between Padmavati and Khilji and even released a video saying that the film honours the valour of Rajputs and the queen.

The former Marseilles striker twice won the prestigious Caf African Footballer of the Year Award. He has been playing for Phoenix since April and has netted 10 times in his 14 appearances.

"When I debuted, Saawariya (directed by Bhansali) and Om Shanti Om had released on the same day".

While controversies and debates have refused to die down over the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming magnum opus "Padmavati", actor Sidharth Malhotra has come forward to support the film.

Dudi, who is also the leader of opposition, demanded a ban on the film, alleging that it distorts facts and history.

"Ten years ago, thinking that I don't fit the mold of being a Bhansali heroine, and today working in three films with him back-to-back".

"It has been an incredible journey and we are literally counting the days. Everything you want to do is coming with a pure heart and a pure intention".

"Well, you never know". And I would love to, although at this point, I also need to heal emotionally, mentally and physically from this experience. "However, we won't allow anyone to do it unlawfully", he said.
