Padmavati row: Nana Patekar lends support to Deepika, Bhansali
Pune: Coming in support of actress Deepika Padukone and filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Bollywood actor Nana Patekar on Thursday said that threats to the duo regarding the release of their controversial film "Padmavati" are wrong and unacceptable.
"‘Padmavati' has not 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 at an event here.
"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 it has been deferred since it has not got clearance from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC).
