Threats to Deepika, Bhansali unacceptable: Nana Patekar
The actor condemned the threats to the actor and filmmaker over their film Padmavati, which is mired in controversy
Nana Patekar condemned threats to actor Deepika Padukone and filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali regarding the release of their controversial film Padmavati.
"Padmavati has not been released yet. You don't know what has been shown in the film. I don't want to get into this, but what I believe is that giving threats to Deepika and Bhansali is wrong and unacceptable," Patekar said.
Padmavati, which also stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, is mired in controversy over conjectures that it 'distorts facts' about Rajput queen Padmavati.
The film was scheduled for release on December 1, but the release has been deferred since it has not received clearance from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC). Meanwhile, the film has also been banned in various Indian states like Madya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Bihar and Punjab.
