Superstar Aamir Khan has condemned the recent attack on filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the sets of “Padmavati”, saying it was “very unfortunate.”
Bhansali and the team of “Padmavati” were roughed up by members of the Rajput Karni Sena for allegedly presenting “distorted facts” in the movie. The group even stalled the shooting by vandalising the set at Jaigarh Fort.
Last night, at the success party of “Dangal”, Aamir said he had been to Rajasthan for shooting but never had such an experience. “What has happened is very unfortunate. I think no one should take the law in their hands. What has happened is wrong,” Aamir said.
“I have shot in Rajasthan and the people over there are nice and lovable. I have had good experiences only but if you hear negative things you do feel bad. It’s sad,” he said. The period drama, scheduled to release this November, stars Deepika in the lead role of queen Padmavati and features Shahid Kapoor as Raja Ratan Singh.Ranveer Singh is essaying the role of Alauddin Khilji.
The story of Padmavati is based on the fable of the queen who committed Jauhar rather than surrender to the lust of Alauddin Khilji. It seems the Karni Sena had objection that there was a dream sequence between Deepika and Ranveer in the film.
Bhansali clarified that there is nothing of that sort in the film. The attack was condemned by everyone in Bollywood who said the industry must unite now.
