Prakash Raj joins the list of celebrities who have now come out in support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati. The actor released a statement on Twitter.
To whomsoever it may concern
One wants to cut a nose..one wants to behead an artist..
One wants to shoot an actor down… and the system wants to remove certain films from a film festival in spite of being selected by a jury
And you want us to believe that there are no acts of intolerance ..?
silencing voices.. ?terrorizing ..?…..#justasking
Apart from Padmavati, Ravi Jadhav’s Marathi film Nude and Sanal Kumar Sasidharan’s Malayalam film S Durga are also in the controversy. Both films were dropped by the Information & Broadcasting Ministry from the 48th International Film Festival of India (IFFI).
Meanwhile Padmavati is in deep troubles as most of the exhibitors and distributors have refused to release the film unless the whole issue is sorted out.
