Sanjay Leela Bhansali leaves Mumbai before release of Padmavati; seen at Mumbai Airport

Just one day before Padmavati’s initial release, Sanjay Leela Bhansali leaves the city amidst police protection.

The remonstrations in opposition to film maker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s most controversial flick, Padmavati featuring Deepika Padukone, her beau Ranveer Singh and hunk Shahid Kapoor haven’t settled. Still, there’s a subsisting prohibition on the movie with campaigners detecting newer methods to show anger and put a stop to Padmavati release.

Indian states including Rajasthan, UP, Jaipur have already made a declaration that they will not permit the screening of the movie even if the Certification Board gives green signal to the flick.

That’s a diverse thing that the Censor Board is yet to give green signal to the film. Or for that matter, even the administration is staying quiet in spite of continuous complaints. So you can only envisage how exhausting and scary it should be for the film’s director Sanjay Leela Bhansali at the moment.

In actual fact, if we’re not mistaken, Bhansali has been picturing this tale in his intellect since over a decade currently and lastly when it’s in line for release, there’s no ray of hope.

Whilst there are no reports where is the ace Bollywood director going this morning.

Images of SJB from the Mumbai airport arrived and you can undoubtedly observe the constant worry over the director’s face. Interestingly, he’s seen leaving Mumbai just one day prior to the movie’s primary release (December 1), in the midst of complete police security.

We wish the concerns around ‘Padmavati’ resolve shortly.

As Deepika Padukone thought, “We are extremely proud and confident of the film we have made. When the heart is in the right place, no one can stop a film. While working on the film, as artistes, we were in a different zone. I only spoke up last month after I finished the film and came out of that zone (she reacted to a group of protester in Surat damaging a rangoli inspired by Padmavati). That’s when I wondered for how long are we going to remain silent?”

“For how long would the entertainment industry be made a scapegoat for everything that happens in this country? I believe we are constantly answerable to everyone for some reason or the other. Why attack cinema which is full of love and which brings people together? Why curb people’s freedom of expression? How long can we allow some people to get away with what they have been doing?” she added up.
