Shatrughan questions silence of PM on Padmavati

NEW DELHI, Nov 22:
BJP leader and Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha on Wednesday questioned the silence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the controversy over the film Padmavati.
In a series of tweets, Sinha said he would give his comments on the issue only after the film’s director Sanjay Leela bhansali spoke in the matter. ”As Padmavati becomes a burning controversy, people are asking why the legendary SrBachchan, most versatile aamir_khan and most popular iamsrk have no comments..and how come our I and B Minister or our most popular Hon’ble PM (according to PEW) are maintaining stoic silence.
High time,” Sinha said. ”As for me, I would & should speak on Padmavati issue only after the “great filmmaker, producer SLBhansali” speaks up.
I speak only when I am spoken to and I will speak keeping in mind the interests of the filmmaker as well as the sensitivity, valour, loyalty of the great Rajputs.’
The film has evoked controversy with the members of the Rajput community saying that the film hurts their sentiments.
The film, which features Deepika Padukone in the title role and Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh in key roles, was scheduled to hit screens on December 1.
However, following the protests against the film, producers Viacom 18 deferred it’s release. (UNI)
