Rallying in his support for Sanjay Leela Bhansali, actor Shahid Kapoor has said the director is making 'Padmavati' while keeping people's sentiments in mind and insisted there is nothing "objectionable" in the movie.
Bhansali and the team of 'Padmavati' were recently roughed up by members of the Rajput Karni Sena for allegedly presenting "distorted facts" in the movie. The group even stopped its shooting by damaging the film's set at Jaigarh Fort.
The period drama stars Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, Aditi Rao Hydari as his wife Kamala Devi, Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati and Shahid as Rawal Ratan Singh.
"I have read the script and it's not objectionable, and it's a very dignified film. He (Bhansali) is treating it with lot of dignity. I think people should see the film and decide things. The sentiments of people are highly in consideration by Sanjay sir," said Shahid.
He added, "When he cast me, he said the characters should be presented correctly as these people are respected and loved by the people of Rajasthan. So it should be represented correctly."
Shahid said people will understand the essence of the film once they see it.
When asked about his view regarding what happened with Bhansali on the sets of 'Padmavati', Shahid said, "What has happened everybody has seen it, it's rather graphic and not in good taste. Having said that I don't want to add to the issues that are being dealt with, I think the right authorities are looking into it, the production is looking into it."
