With controversy showing no signs of letting go of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’, it is now learned that the film will be discussed in parliament by Jaya Bachchan when the winter session begins on 15th December.
A source told SKJ Bollywood News, “She had raised the Padmavati issue in the last parliamentary session when Sanjay Bhansali was assaulted in Rajasthan while shooting for the film. This time she will raise the issue even more strongly in parliament. She hopes to get the support of other film folk in parliament. But even without their support, she will ensure the matter gets noticed.”
The Bachchan family have thusfar remained quiet on the issues surrounding ‘Padmavati’. The source added, “Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) whom Bhansali worked with in Black and Jayaji are keeping a close tab on the developments. They’ve offered Bhansali every help possible.Abhishek who will be starring in Bhansali’s next production is also on touch with Bhansali. But it isAishwarya whom Bhansali is closest to in the Bachchan family. She has been monitoring the situation closely and speaking to him regularly.”
