Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], November 7 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA from Telangana, Raja Singh, on Tuesday threatened Sanjay Leela Bhansali that he would have to pay if the history was distorted in his upcoming movie 'Padmavati'.
"In an attempt to earn money, the history is being misrepresented. Bhansali has made an attempt to bring a change in the history by portraying that Alauddin Khilji was in love with Queen Padmini," added the BJP MLA.
He even challenged Bhansali to make movies on Mughals, Taimur or Mohammad Prophet, adding, "I will invest for it."
"How dare you make movies on rulers who have exploited our country? He should not hurt the sentiments of Hindus," said Singh.
The period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor has been facing protests from various communal groups, including the Shree Rajput Karni Sena, for tampering historical facts. (ANI)
