  1. In my opinion ‘Padmaavat’ should be taken as a dipiction of art of film.. rather then any personal attack to the rajput’s community or Muslims’ sentiments. As this is not a movie which we will tell our children to actually watch for the 8th standard historic lesson.
    I think @Mid-day has a correct perspective to the movie “Padmaavat” it states clearly that this is a movie and our communiites must stop fighting on such stupid things.
