Recently, actress Swara Bhaskar slammed Padmaavat director Sanjay Leela Bhansali because according to her, the film has glorified or promoted Jauhar. She even wrote a letter registering her anger.
Meanwhile, Shahid Kapoor who played the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh in the movie said: “Yes, I have come to know that Swara has written a letter, but honestly, I have not yet read it yet, the letter is quite long and we are all really busy. I do not know what her issue is, maybe whatever issue she has is with Sanjay sir. “
“I would say that this time is not for such things, Padmaavat has been representing the whole film industry. It is also representing freedom of expression and freedom of speech. It has been really difficult to make this film reach the audience.”
Shahid added: “When the entire film fraternity is standing with us in such a situation this open letter looks a bit awkward. But she has written about her personal opinion and everyone has the right to have one.”
