New Delhi, November 15: Undoubtedly, anyone could have expected undefined tremors to arise again for a Sanjay Leela Bhansali project, ‘Padmavati’ starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Shahid Kapoor after the controversial yet blockbuster film, Goliyon ki Ras Leela-Ram Leela and Bajirao MastaniThe soon to-be released film is a historic depiction of Alauddin Khilji (played by Ranveer) and his lust to capture Chittorgarh as a means to own Rani Padmini, (played by Deepika). To prevent the villanous act, she and the rest of the women in the Chittorgarh fort committed jauhar as an act of self-immolation by not falling into the enemy’s trap. We’re sure the never-ending trouble that the Padmavati team seems to be in has kept you eyed on its updates.

PROTEST AGAINST ‘PADMAVATI’

Since the beginning, the not yet relaesed film, Padmavati has seen political interference from both the BJP and the Congress. Rajput group Karni Sena had been showing their strong resentment by all means that could be adopted be it beating up director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, vandalising the sets, and threatening to burn theatres that showed the film, every trick has been used to ensure an unsmooth run of the film on screens. They also destroyed the beautiful rangoli of Padmavati that led to furious Chittorgarh bandh.

Other political groups did not lose their accord with the historic film. A Congress leader, Pratap Singh Kachariya has demanded a ban on the film with a say that it distorts history.

While in Jaipur, ‘princess’ and BJP MLA Diya Kumari, a representer of both the glamorous and political sides of Jaipur’s ‘royal family’, also issued a similar opposing statement on Padmavati like the congress.

Haryana Health minister Anil Vij and former Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shankersinh Vaghela also announced it’s plan to approach the state government for seeking a ban on the upcoming Bollywood movie ‘Padmavati’ by the Censor Board.

BJP leader hailing from Madhya Pradesh, Akhilesh Khandelwal, declared a reward of Rs 10,000 for the one who could slap the filmmaker of Padmavati, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, with a shoe. He told the media that we, the citizens are responsible to protect the dignity and the history created by our forefathers.

SHRI RAJPUT KARNI SENA EXPOSED

The fake patriotism of the Shri Rajput Karni Sena was found out on investigation by the India Today team. They presented up a fake notion of being an an agent of a Bollywood production house who is planning to work on a fictional romance of the Mughal Era, to which the president of the Karni Sena group expressed no objection.

For a ‘meagre’ price of Rs 1.50 Crore, the Shri Rajput Karni Sena promised to enact an incident of vandalism, which would be recorded and advertised online for publicity.

WILL PADMAVATI HAVE A SMOOTH RELEASE?

Now, that’s the real and undefined question that we all are going to discover in the meantime. With roadblocks coming up continuously, we doubt whether the film will enshine like the previous blockbusters or leave the expectations of the audience in shatters. Well, after so much controversy, the film has surely gained enough audience attention giving you enough reasons to not miss it and watch it on the big screen. Maybe, that’s what they desired, publicity with lots of political intervention. In the words of Deepika Padukone, who beholds the role of Rani Padmini in Padmavati, “Nothing and no one can stop this film”, we hope the film, Padmavati ends up well at the box office with a smooth release.

There’s A Small Price To Pay for Stardom, Says Ranveer Singh

Having a fan following of over 10 million on Twitter, Ranveer, who is loved for his flamboyance and energy, says he respects everyone's point of view

In his eight-year-long journey in the Hindi film industry, Ranveer Singh has tasted immense success with blockbusters like “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”, “Bajirao Mastani” and “Padmaavat”. The actor says attaining this stardom comes with a “small” price to pay.

Popularly known as Bollywood’s livewire, Ranveer made his acting debut in 2010 with the hit “Band Baaja Baaraat”. Since then, he has starred in movies like “Ladies vs Ricky Bahl”, “Lootera” and “Dil Dhadakne Do” among many others which did well at the box office.

Asked if he agrees stardom comes with a price tag, Ranveer told IANS in an e-mail interview from Mumbai: “Yes, but my point of view is that it is a small price to pay. I feel very lucky and blessed that I’m one of those people who is getting to do what I love to do for a living and I could not ask for more.”

With big and diverse projects like “Simmba”, “Gully Boy” and “’83”, Ranveer, 32, has no reason to complain.

“I’m doing good work, I’ve collaborated with the finest filmmakers in the business, I’m a part of some exciting stories that are there to be told and I’m a part of some of the largest projects. So, the work is good.

“Along with being a professional in showbiz, there are a few things that come with it. You have to sacrifice a few things in your life. Your personal time, your sense of privacy… But like I said, the good (counters) the negatives for me. So, honestly, you will never find me complaining,” added the actor, who also endorses the eyewear brand Carrera.

With the success and fame he enjoys, how does he manage to keep his feet on the ground?

“Fortunately, I have a very strong support system. My family, my parents, my friends, my team — they have seen me through various phases of life. When they talk to me, they address the person, not the actor, not the star… and I’m very fortunate to have people around me who keep it real,” he said.

Ranveer understands that success and fame are fragile and transient.

“Aaj hai kal nahi hai (It’s there today and not tomorrow). So you have to value your opportunities and keep working hard,” he added.

The “Lootera” star is grateful for the opportunities that have come his way in such a short span of time. And with success, there is also criticism.

Ranveer, who has faced failure with films like “Kill Dil”, “Gunday” and “Befikre”, says he has no trouble in taking criticism in his stride as he always “operates from a very honest place in my heart”.

“I do what I do without any ill will and malice towards anyone. I do the best I can possibly do for anyone; the hardest that I can possibly work towards anything. Whatever choices and decisions I make, I am honest to myself. So whenever there is criticism, I’m mature enough to know there will always be an opposing point of view and there will always be disagreement,” said the actor.
