Shahrukh Khan has voiced support for filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, who recently found himself in the eye of controversy after being attacked by a political group Karni Sena in Rajasthan on the sets of his upcoming movie Padmavati.
Shah Rukh said art and creativity should initiate conversations.
“As far as art and creativity are concerned, everybody wants to do something new, say something new. Art should start conversations, discussions. A person might like a painting, or a poem. Other person might not. So, it should be a discussion. And a discussion should be an exchange of knowledge,” he said.
Shah Rukh added, “If anybody should have a disagreement, or an issue with a form of art, they should sit down and have a discussion. There’s no other means that’s plausible to sort issues out.”
According to Karni Sena, Bhansali’s film has love scenes between Padmini and Khilji. Bhansali’s team, however, clarified that there were no love scenes between Rani Padmini and Khilji and history was not distorted.
