Shahid Kapoor is presently gearing up for the release of his upcoming movie ‘Padmavati‘. The masses reacted negatively to the making of the movie leading to many controversies. Though, the actor specifies that the movie is made with good intent.
Talking about the controversies that have hit the film, the actor said:
“According to me, I have not shot any scene which has been changed. I think there were a lot of presumptions about the film, and people were presuming about the scenes. The clarification has been given that no such scene is there in the film. I hope when people see this film, they will realize that the heart of the film and intent of the film is very good.”
The actor says that he is happy to collaborate with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the film. His actual words were:
“This country and the people who live in it, and especially the area we are talking about in the film, will be glorified. I play a Rajput king and my character, I feel, will be admired by people.”
Talking about the film, he also added:
“It’s a very big film, very intense, romantic and looked forward to filming for various reasons. I think it’s a labor of love for Mr Bhansali. I had gone mad on Twitter after watching his last film (Bajirao Mastani), appreciating everyone, and never knew that I will be part of his (Bhansali’s) next film.”
“So, it’s awesome to be working with someone whose work I have admired in the recent past. The film (Padmavati) has a great cast and going to be a huge film. I am really excited, but I want to underplay it, so I am trying to do that right now.”
Alongside Shahid Kapoor, the movie also features Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles. It is slated to release on November 17, 2017. Stay updated on UMD to get the latest information regarding Bollywood daily. Share your views regarding the article in the comments section as well.
