SNS | New Delhi |

Deepika Padukone’s Padmavati has been drawing flak from various fringe groups in Rajasthan, but the Bollywood and Southern film industry celebrities have raised their voice against all that is happening in the country.

After some leaders of various communities openly asked their followers to bring them Deepika Padukone’s head, Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan in a recent tweet wrote that “he wants the actresses head saved”.

He has requested the people to respect her head more than her body, and gave examples of the times when his films had been opposed by many communities.

Kamal Haasan wrote on his Twitter page: I wantMs.Deepika’s head.. saved. Respect it more than her body.Even more her freedom. Do not deny her that.Many communities have apposed my films.Extremism in any debate is deplorable. Wake up cerebral India.Time to think. We’ve said enough. Listen Ma Bharat.

The film has been mired in controversy over conjectures that it “distorts history” regarding Rajput queen Padmavati, a contention that Bhansali has repeatedly denied.

Some Hindu groups have been protesting against the movie’s release while some political outfits have demanded that its release be deferred in view of the Gujarat Assembly elections.

The makers have also not got a clearance yet from the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), which said the application from the makers was “incomplete”.

In the film, Deepika Padukone plays Rani Padmavati, wife to Rawal Ratan Singh’s character essayed by Shahid Kapoor. Actor Ranveer Singh plays Alauddin Khilji.

Padmavati is yet to get a certificate from the censor board.
