Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for giving some memorable yet blockbuster movies but he is often seen amid controversy for showing the reality in his films. Likewise, the filmmaker had a hard time before the release of Padmaavat. When the film came out in 2018, Swara Bhasker criticized the film for glorifying Sati and Jauhar. However, her statement did not go down well with movie actor Shahid Kapoor as he criticized the actress for the same.

Based on the epic poem of the same name by Malik Muhammad Jayasi, the historical drama also stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmaavat and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji, along with Aditi Rao Hydari, Jim Sarbh, Raza Murad and Anupriya Goenka in supporting roles.

Padmaavat faced numerous controversy before it was finally released on January 25, 2018. While many applauded the film and its star cast, Sawara Bhasker criticized the film. In her open letter, published on The Wire, Raanjhanaa actress Sanjay Leela criticized Bhansali for glorifying Jauhar, saying, “Women don’t just walk talking vaginas.” Her comments received negative reactions, even Shahid Kapoor was not happy.

In an interview with Navbharat Times, Shahid Kapoor replied to Sawara Bhasker’s letter, although he had not read it, the actor said: “Yes, I found out that Swara has written an open letter. But I have not read the letter, it is very long and we are all busy. I have no idea what her problem is but I think her problem with Bhansali is sir. I can say that this is not the right time for such things.”

He added: “Padmaavat represents the entire film industry, it represents freedom of expression and freedom of expression. The journey of the film, reaching the audience, has been very hard and the entire film industry is now behind us. Given the circumstances, her letter seems rather frivolous. Although she has expressed her personal opinion and everyone has the right to express their opinion.”

In her open letter, Swara Bhasker had written: “Women have the right to live despite being raped, sir. Women have the right to live despite the death of their husbands, male ‘protectors’, ‘owners’, “administrators of their sexuality.. whatever you mean by men. Women have the right to live, whether men live or not. Women have the right to live. Period. Women don’t just walk talking vaginas.”
