Pahlaj Nihalani Takes On Subramaniam Swamy, Challenges  Him To Prove Padmavati’s ‘Dubai’ Funding

Padmavati

Pahlaj Nihalani  says he’s “shocked and repulsed” by  Subramaniam Swamy’s allegations that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati is funded from “Dubai”.

“What is  this man talking about? Padmavati is  produced by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures one of the most reputed production houses  of  the country that is owned by Mr Mukesh Ambani.So is Swamy accusing  the Ambanis  or is he accusing Sanjay Leela Bhansali? Is he  aware  of  Mr Bhansali’s reputation as a filmmaker? In all his films Mr Bhansali has extolled and celebrated the  culture of various  parts of India. In  Khamoshi: The musical andGuazaarish  it  was  Goa. In Devdas it was  Bengal . In Ram Leela it was Gujarat and  in  Bajirao Mastani it  was Maharashtra. I  am sure that inPadamavati Mr Bhansali has celebrated  the rich culture and tradition  of Rajasthan, ” says Nihalani.

As for the protesters, Nihalani is sure they will die down  once  the film  is released.  “Let the film come, we will all know what Mr Bhansali has achieved. To simply presume the worst without seeing a single frame  of Padmavati is  doing the genius of Bhansali a great disservice.”
