‘Padmavati’ and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have been facing issues since the beginning and various rumours have just made it more worse for the whole team. And the recent one is that Bhansali plans to hold reconciliatory meetings with the chief minister of the states that banned his film.
Talking about the rumours Sanjay Leela Bhansali said that, "Just because I am not speaking, please do not presume you can get away with anything."
A source close to the team also declined the whole rumour and said, "This is clearly a brainwave of a bored journalist looking for some excitement in his work. There is no plan whatsoever to meet chief ministers or to make potentially reconciliatory gestures with any other group or individual at the moment."
The source also added, "SLB went to Delhi to meet the Parliamentary Committee for an amicable discussion. That was done out of respect for the Parliament. Apart from that, the director has no intentions of meeting anyone to convince them to release his films."
Another source said, "They're waiting for the censor board to view Padmavati and for the Gujarat elections to be over before locking in on another release date. This was the question Prasoon Joshi was repeatedly asked by the Parliamentary Committee. He doesn't seem to have any tenable answer to that."
Stay tuned for more updates.
