Watch the film and then decide, says Shahid Kapoor on protests against Padmavati


The handsome hunk Shahid Kapoor’s upcoming film Padmavati is facing protests from across many quarters in the country, but the actor Shahid Kapoor requested everyone to first watch the film without entertaining any preconceived views. Some outfits in Noida protested against the Sanjay Leela Bhansali-directed film on Sunday and called to the masses not to watch this film, which is expected to release on December 1.

While commenting on the ongoing issue over Padmavati release, Shahid told the reporters, “I’ve been saying this since a long time. Watch the film and then decide. Give the film a chance and don’t form preconceived notions. We have tried to keep everyone’s feelings and interests in mind. We have tried to make the film as best as we could. We will respect whatever people think of the film but you should see it first.” This period drama features Deepika Padukone in the title role of Rani Padmavati, the Rajput queen of Ratan Singh. Ranveer Singh will also be seen as playing Alauddin Khilji, the Delhi sultan. The top court recently rejected the plea asking for a stay on the release of Padmavati and said that the Central Board of Certification (CBFC) considers every aspect before granting a certificate to any film.

The 36-year-old actor said that the whole team is proud of the movie and is overwhelmed the way it has received support from the industry. “The whole team is proud of the film. I think it’s going to be a special cinematic experience, something which I hope the entire fraternity will be proud of. The response I have received after the trailer (released)… Genuinely the whole fraternity has come together to support the film. When something so beautiful is coming, they don’t think like ‘oh it’s not ours, it’s theirs’. Sometimes the trailer or the film is so nice that everyone comes out and says great we have a film like this here. I got a response like that,” Kapoor added.

Playing the title role in the film Padmavati, Deepika Padukone said that “We are glad that people have liked the new song (Ek Dil Ek Jaan). It is my favourite song and I am happy everyone liked it, be it the chemistry or the visualisation. I think we are equally excited about the release of the film. It’s going to be special”.
