Bollywood diva Deepika Padukone, never dreamt of becoming Sanjay Leela Bhansali's favorite heroine, but she is living the dream now. As she prepares for the release of epic drama Padmvati, the actress ins confident that no controversy would be able to stop the release.
Padmavati is slated to release on December 1, 2017
"As a woman, I feel proud to be a part of this film, and to tell this story, which needs to be told. And it needs to be told now," Deepika, who plays the title role in 'Padmavati' - Bhansali's professed tribute to the sacrifice, valour and honour of Rajput queen Rani Padmavati.
Doubts on the extent to which the National Award winning filmmaker has fictionalised the story, has led to a spiralling controversy with politicians, organisations and individuals raising a finger at Bhansali for 'distorting history' and demanding that the release of 'Padmavati' be stalled. Deepika is convinced the movie will release, as scheduled.
'Padmavati' marks the third film that Deepika has worked in under Bhansali's direction after romantic crime drama 'Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela' and historical drama 'Bajirao Mastani' - all of which, she says, gave her roles "so similar, yet so different".
Shahid Kapoor as Maha Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, we all are eager to watch this epic drama!
