“It is in terrible taste. I did not expect this, it was very surprising to see so much is said and spoken about a lady. I am also very shocked” said Shahid Kapoor condemning the physical threats on Deepika Padukone over Padmavati controversy.
Sonakshi Sinha, who has worked with Shahid Kapoor in “R…Rajkumar” also talked about death threats which are issued by fringe elements to Padmavati’s lead actress Deepika Padukone, she said, “I feel whatever is happening is not right. It shouldn’t happen. If in our country, people will start giving death threats openly then I don’t think its correct and I feel strict action should be taken against it”
Further talking about the Padmavati release, which has been postponed, Actor Shahid Kapoor said, “I promoted Padmavati all day; I did a radio trail and one more event, after that we didn’t promote the movie as we didn’t know when we were going to release the film. So doesn’t make sense to go on promoting unless there is a plan in place. As soon as we have clarity on that, we will be everywhere”
Sanjay Leela Bhansali appeared before a parliamentary committee to present his case regarding the controversy and actor Shahid Kapoor finds his heart going out to veteran filmmaker.
“My heart goes out to him, he is probably the finest filmmaker that I’ve worked with and he has tried his level best, see eventually everything becomes subjective. Anyone can have an opinion and the whole idea of a democracy is to respect each other’s opinions and to do things with love and warmth, and belief that the person in front of us is deliberately trying to harm us, so he has been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism. I mean he is not being able to show his film” added Shahid Kapoor.
