Shahid Kapoor on 'Padmavati' row: Watch the film first and then decide as filmmakers have tried to keep everyone's interests in mind!
Although Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming epic drama Padmavati has been facing a lot of criticism and dissension since early this year, one of the film's lead actors Shahid Kapoor, who plays Maharawal Ratan Singh in the film, recently broke his silence for the first time over the controversies surrounding the movie.

Shahid has urged the audience to watch the movie first before concluding that history has been fabricated in any in the film.

While addressing the issue related to Padmavati, Shahid told the reporters last night, "I've been saying this since a long time. Watch the film and then decide. Give the film a chance and don't form preconceived notions. We have tried to keep everyone's feelings and interests in mind," further adding, "We have tried to make film as best as we could. We will respect whatever people think of the film but you should see it first."

Besides Shahid, the period drama features Deepika Padukone, who will be seen in the title role of Rani Padmavati (the Rajput queen) and Ranveer Singh, who plays Alauddin Khilji (the medieval-era Delhi ruler) in the film.

Meanwhile, the handsome hunk of Bollywood also said that the entire team is proud of the movie.

He further thanked his industry friends and fans who have supported the film and given an overwhelming response.

"The whole team is proud of the film. I think it's going to be a special cinematic experience, something which I hope the entire fraternity will be proud of. The response I have received after the trailer (released)... Genuinely the whole fraternity has come together to support the film.

"When something so beautiful is coming, they don't think like 'oh it's not ours, it's theirs'. Sometimes the trailer or the film is so nice that everyone comes out and says great we have a film like this here. I got a response like that," he said.

The actor was speaking at GQ Fashion Nights, where he was accompanied by his co-star Deepika Padukone. Both film stars walked the ramp for designer Gaurav Gupta at this fashion event.

Padmavati continues to face extreme condemnation from the Rajput community who have criticized the filmmakers for distorting historical facts.
