PADMAVATI stars Deepika, Shahid and Ranveer stand up for SLB
After Sanjay Leela Bhansali got roughed up by a local political outfit in Jaipur on the sets of his magnum opus PADMAVATI, B-town celebs started speaking in support of Bhansali.
Deepika Padukone the lead actress of PADMAVATI also took to social media sites to lend her support to the fact that director Bhansali is not distorting any historical facts and using it in his film.
The actress posted:
As Padmavati I can assure you that there is absolutely no distortion of history.#Padmavati— Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) January 28, 2017
Our only endeavour is & has always been to share with the world the story of this courageous & powerful woman in the purest form there is.🙏— Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone) January 28, 2017
Deepika’s co-star Ranveer Singh also came forward to clarify about what they are making as a team
As a team, we are making 'Padmavati' keeping in mind the sensitivities and emotions of the people of Rajasthan and the Rajput community.— Ranveer Singh (@RanveerOfficial) January 28, 2017

Shahid Kapoor, who plays Rawal Ratan Singh, Padmavati’s husband in the film expressed his sadness with these posts
Very very sad. Words do fall short and feel too little to express feelings. Violence is unacceptable. This incident has shocked me.— Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) January 28, 2017
Shahid regretted that he wasn’t there by the side of his director during that time
And my only regret is that I wasn't by his side when this happened.— Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) January 28, 2017
With the team of PADMAVATI clearly stating that they are not distorting any historical facts let’s hope that their project doesn’t face any more obstacles in the coming days.
