Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Superstar Salman Khan has come out in support of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus Padmavati. The actor said that the film should not be judged before it is seen.

“No decision should be made without seeing the film #Padmavati. Sanjay Leela Bhansali makes lovely films and there is nothing wrong with his movies,” Salman told Network 18.

The actor added that only the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has the power to decide if the film is suitable for release. “I want to say that you have Censor Board, they will take a decision. Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) makes very beautiful and excellent films.

“Heroines look very nice and beautiful. His films never have any vulgarity. Looking at his previous track record, one should know that he will never portray any character in bad light,” Salman said during an interview with CNN-News18.

Salman has collaborated with Bhansali in films like Khamoshi, Hum Dil Chuke Sanam and Saawariya.

    If actually totaal dhamaal clashes with toh it would very interesting..i am not here to justify the superstardom of 3 khans..cause everyone knows the truth except some shits..(most of them i think jokingly write their comnts) clashing small films with big films actually can be profitable if they are well made..and currently small films which offers good content are becoming successful nowadays..akki started it .. Bt again if it is a big screen experience..ppl will obviously go to watch the big film..and superstardom meaning i think is now becoming useless nowadays.. Fr exp a ready or bodyguard may not be very successful today..assume ranveer doing a tzh today..which may have outstanding may end at 225 crorevt salman will take it to 300+…so as long as the film is good stardom will its actually astonishing how a completely non commercial film dangal did so well without any holiday(xmas on sunday),or popular heroines..kudos

      yede Dangal not bcz Amir..its Mr.Phogat ki jeevni…which is interesting and really thrilling how come a father ask to his daughter live like Pehlwan…this element work in this favor…so movie obviously became out of box idea…and there is sakshi tanwar talented actress much better than talentless Kat,Pcee…etc etc.she can emote emotions. there is entertainment in Broadway..not even single dull moment.

      got it dear….

      Put this Amir in KICK or HNY…result will be disaster…..THE LAASH /PANDEY is best example…

      • Abe gawaar Jahangir compounder I can understand your frustration and jealousy because your bakri is out of the superstar league so frustration is expected. Who knew mahavir singh phogat and his daughters before dangal? No one. So aamir made it huge on his megastardom (which our bakri khan doesn’t have) and then mahavir singh and his family got fame thanks to megastar aamir khan. Even they admitted that. Then who are you? Tujhe to koi jaanta tak nahi. Shalal acchi nahi hai to at least akal ka to istamaal kar compounder. Put bakri and salman in SS and it will be another marigold/ yeh lumhe judaai ke.

      • Sahi Kaha Dr…. BTW ye Aamir khan fans Dangal ko non commercial kis angle se bolte hain??? 😂

        @Cieling Bhale hi Sunday ko xmas tha but tujhe ye nahi pata k Xmas k time 21st se hi college school and winter holidays start ho jati hai to is sab ka bhi advantage hota hai… Ye sab kyun nahi kehte ho be… Eid and Diwali pe to sirf ek aur do din hi ka holiday hota hai….

          @Ragnorak Abe illiterate dehaati Dangal is non commercial movie. As simple as that. Because it didn’t have any masala, item songs, action, fights, romance or any such thing that’s why it is non commercial. Got it?

      • @compounder
        Teri comments padke accha lagta hai tu Aamir ki tarif bhi karta hai usko nicha bhi dikhata hai
        Matlab tuze Aamir bahot pasand hai par tera dimag nahi chalta

        • Waise tum bhi same ho parshya bs tumhare pass dimaag nahi hai @parshya😂

        • @Parshya, mujhe lagta tu pagla gaya hai, tujhe doctor k paas jane ki zarurat hai…. abey Dhoom 3 sirf Salman fans k liye Brand nahi ye sab k liye Brand hai.. Abhi abhi paida hua kya k tujhe ye nahi pata k Dhoom ek brand hai… Agar tujhe na pata ho to bata doon k Dhoom 2004 mein ayi thi aur us saal behtari films mein se ek thi phirr iska sequel 2006 mein aya aur Highest grossing film ever bana… To tere tingu k ane se pehle bhi ye Brand tha… Dhoom was the biggest brand at that and it’s now too…. Aur ye Parshya bol raha hai k Dhoom sirf sallu fans k liye brand hai…. BTW tujhe na koi Salman ka fan banayega aur naa hi tujhe banne ki zarurat hai… Plz plz plz tu Aamir ka hi fan reh aur Salman ka hater ban k jee… Maza ata hai… Tubhi salman ka fan ban jayega to phirr hum log chidhayenge kisko…. Waise rahi film ki opening ki baat to Dhoom brand chhor de to Aamir k paas ek bhi 30 crs ki opening nahi hai wahi Salman k paas 3 30 crs ki opening wali film hai wo bhi sab non brand original films hain…. Ab chal kanti le yaha se…. 😂

      • Dr aamir wouldn’t do rubbish like HNY and Kick he has something called a brain which he uses I’d watch talaash over HNY and KICK


      Classy gesture from The Tiger of Bollywood…🙏…impressed👍

    Proud to be a Bhai fan…. When everyone was trying to cash on the name of national/anti national/Pakistani/anti Pakistani things our Bhai openly supported ADHM and Raees and defended Pakistani artists for his friends Srk and Karan Johar. Now he’s supporting Padmavati… Duniya kuch bhi kahe but jo Bhai ko sahi lagta hai aur sahi hai bhi Bhai wohi kehta hai…chahe iske liye use khudhi nuksan kyu naa uthana pade!….Box Office things will come and go but you can’t find this quality in the entire galaxy.

    • No doubt no one like Sallu bhai in the galaxy.

      We all Indicine fans watched GA together. Now lets get united in making TZH blockbuster. FDFS for the Indicine gang.

      SRK-Salman rocks. Every one else shocks

      • Count me in !!

        Whole Indicine gang will go and watch the movie together

            • @Javed My name at Indicine was Aamir Khan here was too but someone else came here with that name and dp of Aamir hence i changed my name to Ragnarok, but here on bollyarena i always changes my name ex- Apocalypse, Logan, The Force Awakens, Dawn of Justice etc… But at Indicine i used to use my another ID Aamir Khan with gmail of same name….

            • And I’m the same whom aamir and srk fans used to say that m Hypocrite coz of my name as it matches with Aamir Khan’s name and i used to bash him…

    well said sallu…as ever

    TZH will rock the boxoffice this CHRISTMAS

  5. Good to see Salman is supporting Padmavati. Actually whole film industry should do that. But hardly any star will protest as many of them scared of current Modi-led BJP. Obviously I do not expect selfish star like Akshay Kumar will say anything in favor of anybody.

    • Amit Ranjan Reply

      Bro the protest is from all Hindu communities and from shiv Sena etc…
      So if any Muslim actor will come in support of it they will bash him or her but actors like Akshay, Hrithik should come in support of a good movie like this…. By the way I am also a Hindu and yes and I appreciate what Salman has said….
      Indian will bash good films like padmavati for changing past even without seeing the movie but they will watch baakwaas overactive movies like Judwaa2…
      Waah re Indians Waah…..

    • Akshay kumar always supports our soldiers and speaks against terrorists. He raises social issues.There is no need to say anything about film
      padmavati. Padmavati was a rajput queen and therefor rajputs are opposing the movie on their queen. Directors always add some masala in movies to make hit as we saw in dangal where coach locked mahavir phogat in a room which scene was created only to make the movie interesting. Same in padmavati songs we saw padmavati dancing. Is it fare to show the brave queen dancing in front of public? SLB is good director and this movie will be blockbuster but rajputs are true in their Perspective..

    Good gesture.
    @ tiger, welcome once again on bollyarena.

  7. Well Said Salman Sir….
    He is most Secure Actor in our Industry…..Padmavati is releasing on the same month and still he is supporting it…..He is also a Perfect example of True friend, 1st he back out from Karan-Akki project because of his friendship with Ajay and now he is supporting his another friend (SLB), though things are not going well between him and SLB from sometime, but for Salman “once a friend, always a friend”…….That’s why even after a huge fight with Srk, now again they become Best Buddies, and always praise each other works…..

  8. Padmavati will be Beautiful Movie, I totally loved the trailer…..I wish it will do Humongous Business at Box Office….

    padmavati will open bigger than any srk film released on nonholiday, rest depends on content.

  10. Dr.Jhangir Khan Reply

    Padmavati….going to flop badly…half the audiences already known that there is no scene between Ranveer and Deepika…BM jodi…so its flop….and whole india know Padmavati/Deepika set herself in fire is climax….(called Johar or Sati)…to save dignity of Chittord….thats it.

    • Amit Ranjan Reply

      You shouldn’t bash a good movie like padmavati…. Its a good one and will definitely be a blockbuster(if faces no protest from so called Rajputs)…..
