Shahid Kapoor on ‘Padmavati’: I am hoping to get back on set

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ has been facing a lot of issues. After SLB was attacked in Jaipur, the shooting of the film was going to start in Kolhapur. However, there too the sets were vandalised.

Recently, at an event, when Shahid was asked about the sets being vandalised, the actor said, “I am hoping to get back on set. And I am hoping that people will wait to see the movie before judging it as I think a lot of preconceived notions about it are around.”

The actor stated that it is better to not speak much about the controversy. He said, “I don’t want to comment too much as one doesn’t want to say anything that will spark any further controversy or create more trouble for the makers as it’s very difficult for the producers and everyone associated with the movie to deal with this situation.”

“It’s unfortunate that something like this is happening and of course, we have become soft targets. I hope people give an opportunity to the filmmaker to express his views and then choose to say what they need to say. But to say it before you see the film, is a bit premature,” he added.
