The movie gets delayed, people panic and avoid from going to theatres. "He has not suffered any "personal loss" over our verbal spat.he has a right to say what he wants and so do I. but Raj has certainly become poorer by one vote [meaning Patekar's] over this issue", said the actor. How could the controversial film reach the United Kingdom when it had not been cleared here?
A major contention around the film, especially by the CBFC and few parliamentarians, was that it was screened to a select audience before it even got certified. Theatre owners are also scared because they don't want violence and stone-pelting outside their theatres.
Salman, who has earlier worked with the filmmaker in Khamoshi (1996) and Hum Dil Chuke Sanam (1999), has also said that Bhansali is a responsible filmmaker and will not make a film that will offend anyone.
The actor was in conversation with senior journalist Shekhar Gupta at the HT Leadership Summit here.
When Sanjay Leela Bhansali offended Salman and Shah Rukh was responsible for it
From speaking up on the Padmavati row once again to trying to pull Sanajay Leela Bhansali's leg, the actor answered the questions with a pinch of humour. They are reportedly taking into consideration all the opinions coming from various parties and will then state its opinion on a release for Bhansali's film, along with other films which fall under a similar category (historical genre).
Joshi is learnt to have told the panel that he has requested the information and broadcasting ministry, under which the CBFC is an autonomous body, to provide it with a list of experts who can vet the content of the movie. They allege that Bhansali has misrepresented history in the film and hurt their sentiments by presenting the Rajputs in a bad light. It is also not fair to comment on a film without seeing it. Joshi told the panel that the film had not yet been approved and the board only cleared the trailer and promos of the period film.
Expressing his views on Bhansali's upcoming movie Padmavati and the controversies it is surrounded with, Salman said: "Nobody but only the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and the court will decide on Padmavati".
