Sanjay Leela Bhansali assures Padmavati doesn't distort history


Another meeting was to discuss the Supreme Court order that refused to impose any restrictions on the release of the movie, stating that it was yet to be reviewed by the censor board of film certification. The movie has been facing many hurdles. Apparently, even the Rajasthan government is planning to set up a committee to watch the film before its release. Rational public opinion should ensure that a balance is retained between fact and fiction, artistic license and objectionable distortion", he said to TOI from Jodhpur."There has hardly been any serious attempt to make a proper historical film in our country, As Reported By TOI.

Andhare is confident the CBFC will have "appropriate representation from the necessary quarters, historians included".

About the alleged dream sequence, Andhare once again clarified, "We have already clarified that all anxieties about the alleged depiction are unfounded".

The petition reads, as reported by Times Of India, "The trailer of the film shows Rani Padmavati doing a 'ghoomar' dance".

The bench comprising of Chief justice Dipak Mishra, justice A.M. Khanwilkar, and D.Y Chandrachud said that the film has followed enough guidelines for the censor board to grant certification before its release. Sanjay has personally assured in a video that the film celebrates the Queen and Rajput valour, dignity and traditions.

But Andhare said: "All our distributors are with us". The movie will release in 3D as well!

On Friday, Joshi came out in support of Bhansali, saying the CBFC respected him "as an individual and artist".

Featuring Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, the song encapsulates the romance shared between the two characters, Rani Padmavati and Maharawal Ratan Singh.
