The month of November in terms of Bollywood was all about Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Padmavati and the various controversies which resulted in the delay of the film. Padmavati has been postponed and the makers are yet to announce a new date.
Amidst all this havoc, Bollywood celebrities were very much vocal about the issue and the atrocities the film is facing. Recently, Priyanka Chopra at an event spoke on the death threats received by actress Deepika Padukone and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Pee Cee revealed, “I feel like I should call Deepika and Sanjay sir and tell my opinion to them. And this is exactly what I did. I called them and told I stand by them and hope that audience gets to see the film. The art that Sanjay Leela Bhansali believes in should be viewed by everyone”.
Unlike Priyanka who doesn’t step back from voicing her opinions, there are few celebrities who do not to want to speak on issues like the Padmavati controversy. On this Priyanka stated, “When you use my name as a public figure from Indian film industry and flash my opinion on the ticker, I feel used. By asking this question over and over again you are doing the same. You are asking me a question about another film and filmmaker instead of talking about me and my career”.
