Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming movie Padmavati, has been in the eye of a storm for a while now with Karni Sena and other fringe groups, including politicians, protesting against the release of the film alleging that the movie has distorted historical facts and has showed the Rajput queen Padmavati in a bad light. Actor Ranveer Singh, one of the three lead actors of ‘Padmavati’, has said he stands by the movie and its director Sanjay Leela Bhansali “200 percent.”


Such is the outrage against the movie that Haryana BJP leader Suraj Pal Amu announced a cash prize of Rs 10 crore for people who would volunteer to behead the cast members associated with the movie. Amu also supported the Meerut Kshatriya Samaj, whose members announced a bounty of Rs 5 crore on the heads of Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone, and said he would torch every theatre in India if the movie gets released.

Amid all this controversy, that is sure to push the release date of Padmavati further, veteran actor Kabir Bedi, 70, who had last year tied the knot with his long-time partner, Parveen Dusanj, 41, took to Twitter to extend his support to the crew members.

Through a tweet, he lashed out at BJP MLA Diya Kumari, after she said that they will not allow Padmavati to release “as long as we are not fully satisfied with the film and objectionable scenes are not removed.


Shocked at the langauge used for women by Bedi in his tweet, through a tweet the BJP MLA, said she is a daughter of Rajasthan, and all of Rajasthan will fight for Padmavati’s honour. She also said that Bedi won’t be able to understand a woman’s honour.

It must be noted that Bedi’s marriage with Dusanj is his fourth. The actor has been earlier married to Protima Bedi, Susan Humphreys and Nikki Bedi.
