`Padmavati` row: Arjun Kapoor urges people to `trust` Bhansali's vision .

New Delhi [India], Nov 9 (ANI): Reacting to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's recent video message, Bollywood star Arjun Kapoor has urged people to trust the filmmaker's vision .

Bhansali on Wednesday cleared the air over rumoured romantic scene between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji in his magnum opus 'Padmavati', saying there is no such sequence in the film .

The 'Mubarakan' star retweeted the post and wrote alongside, "Yet again a man has to justify creativity because politics & propaganda creates an ugly environment . He's a fantastic filmmaker his vision must be trusted . I'm sure Rani Padmavati & her story will be depicted with respect by him & @RanveerOfficial @deepikapadukone @shahidkapoor"

The film stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maha Rawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji .

The movie, slated to release on December 1, has run into controversy over its plot, with some right wing outfits calling it the wrong portrayal of the Rajput queen .

The period drama has been facing protests from various communal groups, including Shree Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering historical facts .

In January, activists of the Karni Sena had also protested and misbehaved with the crew of Padmavati and also thrashed Bhansali . (ANI)
