  • Padmavati’ row ‘dangerous’ in the foreign film world’s eyes

Speaking at the Hindustan Times Summit, the actor further pointed out how the controversies and negativity around a film are detrimental to the entire industry and works against all those people who work in it.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali seems to have offended quite a few people, and Salman is the latest addition to the list. They are reportedly taking into consideration all the opinions coming from various parties and will then state its opinion on a release for Bhansali's film, along with other films which fall under a similar category (historical genre).

Joshi, along with Bhansali, was also asked to submit their responses before the Petitions Committee of Lok Sabha after two BJP MPs, Om Birla and CP Joshi, complained against the film and sought a ban on its release, alleging that the film "distorts history".

Censor Board chief Prasoon Joshi on Thursday told a parliamentary panel that the controversial film Padmavati will be certified and released after it's vetted by historians, even as filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali said the movie was based on a "fictional" theme. The censor board has in the past taken help from specialists in fields like medicine and defence while clearing movies based on such themes.

"Whenever there is a controversy around a film, there is a lot of loss. The film is based on a poem by Malik Muhammad Jayasi", Bhansali said, referring to the 16th century Indian sufi poet's epic poem Padmavat.


The panel has chose to give Bhansali "at least two weeks" before deciding whether he would be called for the next hearing or not, adds the Express report. On 30 November, Bhansali along with the officials from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the Information and Broadcasting (I&B) ministry were called by the parliamentary standing committee on information technology during a meeting set up to resolve the ongoing issue around the film.

Detailing the proceedings of the IT panel, sources said chairman Anurag Thakur moved to put Bhansali at ease by making it clear that the panel only wanted to understand the issue and was with the director.

The statement quoted Thakur as saying: "How and why did this divide and controversy erupt..."

Padmavati controversy is at its peak.
