Meanwhile Ajit Andhare, Chief Operating Officer of Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, has called the rumours of the release date of the film being postponed as completely baseless.
The film’s leading actress, Deepika Padukone shared her views on it and said in an interview , "As a woman, as an artiste, as someone who has worked and given two years of my life to this movie, I feel hurt, I feel angry, but I also think it is extremely funny that people are reacting like this to a film. I am feeling so many emotions at this point. There is fraction out there who is doing what it is. But as I said at the start, I have faith in our judicial system.”
She reiterated, “I have full faith in the judicial system of our country. I know no wrong will be done”.
About the film and the posters, Deepika said, “It is my own special moment as an actor. I cannot say much about the moments in the film. But whatever little that we are seeing is for me some of the most memorable momnts of my life on a film set. In my opinion, ‘Padmavati’ especially in 3D will be an experience worth savouring. It is much more than just a film.”
