Salman Khan who is gearing up for ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ spoke in support Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming “Padmavati”. During an interview with Channel News18 Salman said, Bhansali will never show anyone in a bad light.
Salman has worked with Bhansali in films “Khamoshi”, “Hum Dil Chuke Sanam” and “Saawariya”, feels no decision should be made without watching the film. “Heroines look very nice and beautiful. His films never have any vulgarity. Looking at his previous track record, one should know that he will never portray any character in bad light,”
“I want to say that you have Censor Board, they will take a decision. Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) makes very beautiful and excellent films,” he further added.
“Padmavati”, scheduled to release on December 1, is surrounded by a controversy as some Hindu groups and political parties, claim that the film distorts history and wrongly portrays Rajput queen Padmavati, a contention Bhansali has repeatedly rebuffed.
IFTDA, Cine and Television Artists Association (CINTAA), along with the Western India Cinematographers Association, Screenwriters Association, Association of Cine and TV Art Directors and Costume Designers on Monday expressed support for Bhansali with #WeSupportPadmavati campaign and sought protection of freedom of expression of artistes.
“Padmavati” features Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Ranveer Singh as Allauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh.
