Bollywood celebrities, including filmmakers Karan Johar, Farhan Akhtar, Ram Gopal Verma, Anurag Kashyap and Madhur Bhandarkar along with actors Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor had expressed their anger after Rajput Karni Sena workers created ruckus and vandalised the sets of filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati in Jaipur. But this incident happened some 2 months back. That was a time when when Sanjay was being targeted almost on a daily basis. But with no such incidents reported in recent times, Sanjay is worried whether his script is exciting enough.
Faking News reporter has found out from a close Sanjay aid that although Sanjay was never too happy with the vandalism on his sets, he was at least sure that his movie has some engaging content due to which people are showing interest in attacking him. This was the motivation which kept him shooting the movie in spite of the dangers posed by different radical groups.
But times have changed, and Sanjay Bhansali doesn’t ooze such confidence anymore. In fact there are reports that he keeps on postponing the shoots, waiting for attacks. In some cases he has announced on loud speakers, about the location and address of his next shoot so that people can come to the sets and attack him, but even that move dint work. As a last resort the acclaimed director has called up his scriptwriter and asked him to add more controversy to the narrative, to make people rebel against the project. According to Bhansali, no project is worth taking if people don’t have something bad to say about it.
Ranveer and Deepika also believe that the attacks will keep inspiring them to give their best for the movie. Ranveer also makes sure that he notifies all journalists and the newsmakers about his shooting location for Padmavati. If everything doesn’t work, Sanjay has plans to hire his own set of men to carry out attack on his own sets.
