Sanjay Leela Bhasali on Padmaavat touching 250 crores on boxoffice

 The mighty Sanjay Leela Bhansali who turns a year  55 later this  month has a lot to celebrate. His latest  film Padmaavat is out of the clutches of crippling controversies and well on the want to  becoming one of  the biggest hits of all times.

As  the figures keep coming  in—Padmaavat has already crossed Rs 250 crores in the national market—its director remains calm.

“As a child I never got to  celebrate  my birthday.My sister and I were  not even allowed to attend  birthday parties.Having said  that, I see no reason to celebrate, birthday or  no birthday,the fate of Padmaavat was  never in our hands,  or in the hands  of those who wanted to stop it. Now when it has gone of the hands of  those who, for reasons best known to them, wanted it to be stopped and now that it has exceeded  collections beyond all expectations,I have just one question for those who don’t  like my film, many of them without seeing it. Who decides what the audience should see and like?” asks Bhansali as he now puts his mind to his  next venture.

“My work, my cinema is  the only impetus I have to wake up every morning with hope in my heart. I have stopped thinking about Padmaavat. I am now looking at the future.The  past year has been traumatic  for me. I am yet to process all the levels of attack I went through. I don’t think  about it at the moment. But somewhere down the the line I will have bring all the sordid experiences out and deal with  it.At the moment I  only want to feel thankful  that our film has been seen  by the public, and liked…except by those who invariably think my cinema is about excesses. To them  I can only say sorry, I will try harder next time to  please you.”
