That Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Padmaavat has had its fair share of controversies since last year would be an understatement. The movie has gone through a title change, censor cuts, bounties being announced on the heads of the director and lead actress, the director has been assaulted and sets have been destroyed. Despite all of this, the epic is all set to release on the Republic Day weekend with Akshay Kumar very graciously postponing the release of PadMan.
But of course, the fringe organizations (that are slowly becoming pretty mainstream) have taken to the streets to protest the film, threatening to burn down theaters amongst other things.
Actress Renuka Shahane has the best response to this nonsense –
Renuka is known to be outspoken about the issues she believes in, making her one of the few celebrities to take a stance on matters that could be deemed controversial.
