Sanjay Leela Bhansali on 'Padmavati' movie

Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming film ‘Padmavati’ has been facing a lot of roadblocks ever since the film had been announced. Even after going through such hurdles, recently the maverick filmmaker successfully wrapped up the shooting of this magnum opus; the portions of actor Ranveer Singh, who plays the role of Sultan Alauddin Khilji in the film. Undoubtedly, like everyone we are also eagerly looking forward to the release of this film, and recently filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali finally chose to speak about this negativity around him and his film.

While speaking to an agency about this, the director said, “None of my films has been easy to shoot. From the time I directed my first film ‘Khamoshi: The Musical’, I’ve fought against all odds. My first film was declared a flop on the first day of release and there were reports of enraged viewers breaking their seats inside the theatre. I wondered what I had done to incur their wrath.” [sic] (Also Read: Padmavati : Cabinet Minister Uma Bharti pens an open letter in support of the film)


“I don’t think of the struggle, the suffering and the strife as negative forces. They are my incentives to make the films that I want to make. If I had to make a stress-free film, I’d be really worried,” added the filmmaker. [sic]

Along with Ranveer Singh, as mentioned earlier in the story, ‘Padmavati’ stars Deepika Padukone playing the titular role and Shahid Kapoor playing the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh. It is currently in the final stages, and undergoing post-production work.

The film is slated to hit the screens on December 1.
