“What better gift can I expect than this wholehearted acceptance of my film? There were threats and risks of violence and yet families all across the country went to see Padmaavat. It gives me feeling of tremendous gratitude.
“I’ve been through so much during the past year, I am numbed. It is baffling why the situation was allowed to get out of hand in the first place. I can only thank the audience for going to see my film in spite of the threats,” said Bhansali, whose one big fear is that the fringe elements will target other films.
“I don’t think Padmaavat is the end of it (the protests). This is just the beginning,” added the filmmaker.
Ranveer Singh, about Padmaavat, said: “It’s doing something I had never imagined. It’s one of those rare films that sort of encompasses everything, be it critical acclaim, commercial success or love of the audience.”
He said that Padmaavat is one of those rare movies that can be remembered 10-15 years down the line and people will still appreciate it then because of its timeless quality.
