‘No objectionable scenes in Padmavati’, clarifies Sanjay Leela Bhansali
New Delhi, Jan 29 (ANI): Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who on Friday was thrashed by the Rajput Karni Sena workers during the ongoing shoot of his film ‘Padmavati’ in Jaipur Mehrangarh Fort, has clarified that his upcoming periodic film shows no objectionable scenes between Rani Padmavati and Muslim king Allauddin Khilji. The official statement of the team said, “Sanjay Leela Bhansali has shot two films in Jaipur and despite his love for Rajasthan, for the safety of his crew, we have decided to stop the shoot and leave the city post the shocking incident where miscreants damaged property and misbehaved with the crew on the shoot of ‘Padmavati’.” The statement further read as, “We clarify that there is no dream sequence or any objectionable scene between Rani Padmavati and Allauddin Khilji. We have been carefully researching and making the film.” In the recent development, the 53-year-old director has called off his Jaipur shoot and has come to Mumbai after the vandalism on the sets of his film. Workers of Rajput Karni Sena on Friday created ruckus and assaulted the filmmaker on the sets of ‘Padmavati’, claiming that the film portrayed a much-celebrated Rajput queen in ‘poor light’.
