Shahid: I am sure Padmavati will come out in full force


With all the controversies revolving around the release of Padmavati, Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor expressed confidence that the film will come out and that too in full force.

This is not the first time that the actor’s film has been trapped in controversy and struggling for a release.

To which Shahid added, “I don’t think there is anything in the film that is unacceptable or that is not in good taste. Eventually, Padmavati will come out and in full force. Our constitution says that you are innocent until proven guilty. Same should be extended to Padmavati, it should not be considered guilty even before it is provided for people to judge it.”

Talking about the same, the actor said, Udta Punjab also had a lot of drama before it came out. But I am very optimistic because eventually it released and was loved by everyone. It is one of the most significant films of my career. The people who it was about, the state of Punjab, even their reactions were so beautiful when they saw the film. And I really feel it would be similar for Padmavati.”

“Sometimes films of this nature are more difficult to get through to the people than usual. Sometimes it gets a little complicated,” he told media at the red carpet of the India International Film Festival (IFFI) 2017 on Monday.

When asked if all this is disappointing him, he said, “This is not the time to be angry; this is not the time to lose your cool because there are enough people doing that right now. So, I would choose to say that I believe in the process and I am very optimistic. I am sure Padmavati will come out. Once people see the film, they will be proud of it like we are.”
