Shahid Kapoor

Movie Padmavat has been grabbing attention and become the talk of the town since the time of its making. It has faced challenges for the release. Amidst protest and legal fights this movie has been released. In fact, few of the states did not screen Padmavat due to threat of Rajputs’ community. It is shocking to know Swara Bhaskar’s letter to filmmaker in Sanjay Leela Bhansali for movie Padmavat. She slammed the movie and remarked that film left her feeling “reduced to a vagina’. She slammed Bhansali for “glorifying jauhar” in the period drama.

On this remark of Swara, there is a storm again in the film industry. People came up and shared that Swara has all rights to share her opinion but they did not find anything wrong in movie. Actor Shahid Kapoor, who played the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, called Swara’s opinion “odd”.

Know what Padmavat actor said about Swara’s Letter in one of the interviews
“Yes, I got to know that Swara has written an open letter. But I haven’t read the letter, it is very long and we are all busy. I have no clue what is her issue but I think her issues are with Bhansali sir. I can say that this is not the right time for such things. Padmaavat represents the entire film industry, it represents freedom of expression and freedom of speech. The journey of the film, reaching the audience has been very tough and the entire film industry stands with us right now. Given the circumstances, her letter seems quite frivolous. Though, she has expressed her personal views and everyone has the right to voice their opinion.”

Movie Padmavat is a period drama, starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in lead roles. The movie is based on a poem by Malik Mohammad Jayasi.
