Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati has been facing a lot of trouble since the film went on floors. Now, superstar Salman Khan has come out in support of Bhansali.
In an interview to a leading news channel, Salman Khan said, "Mera manna yeh hai ki aapke paas censor board hai. Censor board decide karega. Sanjay bahot hi khoobsurat aur badhiya films banate hai. heroine bahot acchi aur sundar dikhti hai. unki filmo mein kabhi koi vulgarity ya koi disgust nahi hota. unka jo peechla track record dekh ke. That one sense should be there ke yeh kabhi bhi kisi ko uss tareek se darshayenge nahi (I believe there is Censor board so let the board decide it. Sanjay makes very good and beautiful films. Actresses look very beautiful in his films. His films have no vulgarity or any disgust. If you check his old track record, there should be a sense that he will never show anyone in a bad light)."
Salman has previously worked with Bhansali in films such as Khamoshi: The Musical and Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
The Rajput Karni Sena and many political leaders don't want the film to release as they believe Bhansali has distorted historical facts in it and has shown a romantic dream sequence between Queen Padmini and Alauddin. Bhansali has cleared it several times that there is no such scene in the film but the protests against its release are not stopping.
Padmavati is slated to release on December 1, 2017.
