Shahid Kapoor looked dapper at the ongoing International Film Festival Of India (IFFI). The Padmavati actor was in attendance for his brother Ishaan Khatter’s debut film, ‘Beyond The Clouds’ that opened IFFI 2017. Before hitting the venue, Shahid spoke to the reporters present and condemned the threats that were being given out against his co-star Deepika Padukone calling it “Shameful”.

He further condemned the threats and said, “Of course, any kind of conversation which is violent is not in good taste. I think it was absolutely uncalled for. I hope we will live up to the expectation of the people. I don’t want to make any comments specific to a group,”


Shahid also put forth his point of view as to why he thinks ‘Padmavati’ is drawing flax from all corners. The actor opened up stating, “Sometimes films of this nature…. it gets a bit complicated. I will choose to be optimistic till the due course is done. This is not the time to be angry, not the time to lose your cool. There are enough people doing that. So I would choose to say that I believe in the process,”

The actor was optimistic that the film will have a smooth release and people will realise that the protest was unnecessary.

“I am sure Padmavati will come out. It is a film we are very very proud of. I am sure once people see the film, all this will be forgotten.” (Alo read: Padmavati: Supreme Court rejects the plea to block the release)

We too really hope that the film sails smoothly and all the protests and threats die down once it hits the theatres. As of now, we await the announcement of the new release date.
