Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ is still facing opposition, and has still not received an release date by the Censor Board. Actor Aamir Khan says that no one should be taking violence into their own hands, and it is unfortunate if that happens.
NDTV reports that Khan chose to not directly comment on the ‘Padmavati’ row, and made indirect references for the same. To PTI, Khan said, “It reflects badly on us when things like this happen. I feel that everybody has a right to protest. But I think in a democracy and in a country where we believe in the rule of law, I don’t think anyone should be threatening people with violence. That is most unfortunate. As an Indian, it makes me sad. It is not just restricted to a film personality, it could be anyone. The rule of law should be upheld and no one should be above the law and no one should take violence in their hands. No matter what walk of life you are in, whether you are a film person or a non-film person, you could be a doctor, an engineer, a government servant, but to be threatened physically is most unfortunate. I don’t believe in that philosophy.”
‘Padmavati’ star Deepika Padukone and Bhansali are still receiving death threats for the film.
