Shahid Kapoor promotes Padmavati at Fever FM

Deepika Padukone in Rani Padmini in Padmavati

The upcoming film helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali is, these days, in news for protests by a Rajput community. 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. "Moreover, what we can do on our level will also be decided after the committee watches the film", Kataria said.

"Padmavati" features Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Ranveer Singh as Allauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Rawal Ratan Singh.

Meanwhile, the handsome hunk of Bollywood also said that the entire team is proud of the movie. Genuinely the whole fraternity has come together to support the film. It is going to be a very special cinematic experience. Shahid said, "The whole team is proud of the film". The response I have received after the trailer (released).

"When something so handsome is coming, they don't think like "oh it's not ours, it's theirs". Bhansali symbolises success of our film industry in many ways, and if he can be treated like this and harassed, things are not right", Ashoke Pandit, IFTDA President, told IANS. Deepika, who graced the GQ Fashion Night in Mumbai yesterday said that she is overwhelmed with the love that Padmavati is receiving, and how she can not wait for the film to release.

One can now only hope for the best that the film will released without a hitch in India while in some parts of the country a smooth release seems unlikely, especially in the poll bound Gujarat and parts of Rajasthan. Give the film a chance and don't form preconceived notions. He has himself said that he has made a film which is true to the story and there is nothing in it that might hurt the sentiments and sensibilities of people. I think we are very very excited, and overwhelmed by the response.
