Talking about the whole issue the protesters have with the content of the film, the actor said, "I don't think there is anything in the film that is unacceptable or that is not in good taste". "He [Ranveer Singh] should have thought about the role he was playing", Rawal said.A few days ago, the minister supported the protests started by fringe groups against the movie , As Reported By Hindustan Times. Similar protests were faced by Abhishek Chaubey directed Udta Punjab.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan also declared that a film which has "distorted facts" about Rajput queen Padmavati and shows or says anything to disrespect her, will not be released in Madhya Pradesh. It released peacefully and it was seen by any and everybody and the people whom the film was about, the state of Punjab, their reaction was so lovely when they saw the film. He feels that the same would happen with the movie'Padmavati' also.

"Sometimes films of this nature are more hard to get through than usual". When asked the actor that does all of this is disappointing for him? He says that he would choose to say that he believes in the process and at this time he is being an optimist. I feel this is not the right time to be angry and lose your control. He is very much confident that the movie "Padmavati" will come out with a full force. Then, all of this will be forgotten. "I think our Constitution says you are innocent until proven guilty". Same should be extended to Padmavati. It should not be considered guilty unless it has been provided to people to judge it.

Meanwhile, Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) chief Prasoon Joshi said the Board was trying to follow a process of dialogue vis-a-vis the stalemate surrounding Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film "Padmavati", whose release has been delayed because of opposition from conservative groups.


The movie 'Padmavati' is an upcoming Indian period drama.

On the other hand, The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed another plea to stay the release of the controversial movie Padmavati and initiate criminal prosecution against its director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

While the film's two other lead actors, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have both spoken out about the kind of a storm that Padmavati is now in, Shhaid has been uncannily quiet all along.
