 Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one of the leading celebrated director and producer in India. He has always been in the limelight for the movies he makes. One such movie that received a lot of protests and controversies is Padmaavat. The movie received massive negativity for distorting history. It seemed to be a perilous move by Bhansali to produce this movie. The director’s bold move softens the crucial line between history and narrating that history through a script.

The film received numerous threats from political and religious parties. According to these organizations the movie’s content is objectionable. The Anti-Padmaavat brigade rode swiftly in many parts of India protesting against the movie. But Bollywood stands united in support of Bhansali’s Padmaavat. Various celebrities showed their open support through numerous posts in social media.

Here are some of the tweets of leading Bollywood celebrities to support  Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat:

 Shabana Azmi tweeted “The entire film industry should IFFI in protest against the threats to @deepikapadukone SLB and #Padmavati”.

Sushant Singh Rajput showed his support by tweeting “We would suffer till the time we’re obsessed with our surnames. If you’re that courageous, give us your first name to acknowledge. #padmavati”.

Hansal Mehta tweeted “I was told by many industry leaders that it was wise strategy to delay #Padmavati. Truth is that people have resigned themselves to government inaction in the face of such blatant terror. The only advice given is shut up, retreat and accept these attacks.”

Varun Dhawan posts a shocking tweet “Shocked!!! This is not protesting this is threatening. If this was a sportsmen or an important businessman being threatened…I wonder what would have happened?”

Leading lyricist Javed Akhtar tweeted “Padmawat is the first Hindi novel written by Malik Mohammad Jaisi during Akbar’s era… It is not history but pure fiction like Salim Anarkali”

Bhumi Pednakar, Riteish Deshmukh, Twinkle Khanna, Sonam Kapoor, Nikhil Advani have shown their support as well.

The Supreme Court has also lifted ban in many states. The movie is creating milestones and is received well by the audience.
