Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha has questioned the likes of India Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and legendary actor, Amitabh Bachchan on their silence over the ongoing ‘Padmavati’ row.

He tweeted, “As Padmavati becomes a burning controversy, people are asking why the legendary Amitabh Bachchan, most versatile Aamir Khan and most popular Shah Rukh Khan have no comments. And how come our I&B Minister or our most popular Honourable PM are maintaining stoic silence. High time!”

He added, “As for me, I would and should speak on ‘Padmavati’ issue only after the ‘great filmmaker, producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali’ speaks up. I speak only when I am spoken to and I will speak keeping in mind the interests of the filmmaker as well as the sensitivity, valour, loyalty of the great Rajputs.”

‘Padmavati’ has been embroiled in controversy, which has resulted in the film changing its release date from 1st December 2017 to early 2018.
