Sanjay Leela Bhansali (or SLB as he is referred to since we hate long names) has been known for movies that are essentially a walk through a beautiful palace, with some characters in between to display great clothes & jewellery. There’s a two year gap between his last movie, Bajirao Mastani, and the new one, Padmavati. And there’ve been controversies on both.
- Queens don’t dance. It is insulting to show them dancing!
- Costumes: Queens don’t wear such costumes. They are dignified and covered
- Intimate scene between the King and a woman! Uff!
- No problem with the actors but not sure if these were the ones who should’ve been. chosen to play these characters
- Insulting to culture!
Which movie were these issues for? Why, both! Same issues. New meaning to “Formula movies”?
