Padmaavat my homage to Rajput valour and vigour: Bhansali
Mumbai: With Padmaavat ready to hit theatres after intense controversy, the filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali today said that this movie is his tribute to the glorious stories of Rajput “honour, valour and vigour”.
The director said, the lavishly mounted period drama, which will hit the screens on January 25, is a dream come true for him.
“Padmaavat is a dream come true for me. I have always been fascinated by the stories of honour, valour and vigour of our great Rajput warriors that have been captured so beautifully in our literature and this movie is my homage to those glorious stories,” Bhansali said in a statement.
The movie features Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji.
