Priyanka spoke out for Bajirao Mastani



The well known Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s historical movie Bajirao Mastani is going to hit cinemas today, but before this sexiest lady Priyanka Chopra has said something on tweeter.

She said, “I can’t help staying silent on this anymore. It’s too sad to see how films and actors become political pawns! Bans based on baseless propaganda. Holding films [for] ransom just before they release so that publicity can be garnered for certain agendas by forcing a producer to [his/her] knees.”

The movie’s cast includes Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh, and Priyanka Chopra, the movie was going to release, but the Indian extremist party Shiv Sena banned the movie for temporarily because they have some objections regarding the private scenes and fictional fight scenes.

Bajirao and Mastani’s successors had got exclusion to the movie’s “vulgar” sections and idealistic trailer. They told that Priyanka and Deepika’s track ‘Pinga’ had been filmed as a “‘Dola Re Dola’ sort of item song with the body showing”, which is a falsification of their culture.

The megastar Priyanka Chopra told against sections that have been making efforts to spoil the release of the movie.

She further said that “How does no one speak up for what is right? How is this fair? People think films [are] just fun and games to make?! They [are] made with blood, sweat, and tears for entertainment! [Please] stand by the filmmakers who put in their life’s money and hard work to make people laugh and smile. Don’t let them be blackmailed and threatened by holding their films [for] ransom just before release.”

She asked that “Speak up before if there is an issue!’’ “Everyone has a right to an opinion. The timing right before release just seems very suspect! I know I may get into trouble for saying all this, but I can’t be a silent witness to character defamation based on opinions anymore. That is not what, the India [where] I grew up, taught me.”
