Panaji, Nov 20 (ANI): Inspite of all the controversies ensuing over the release of 'Padmavati', Bollywood star Shahid Kapoor expressed confidence that the film 'will come out and that too in full force'. This is not the first time that the actor's film has been caught in controversy and struggling for a release. Talking about the same, the 'Haider' star said, "'Udta Punjab' also had a lot of drama before it came out. But I am very optimistic because eventually it released and was loved by everyone. It is one of the most significant films of my career. And I really feel it would be similar for 'Padmavati'." When asked if all this is disappointing for him, Shahid said he chooses to be optimistic till the due course of the certification process is over.

So I would choose to say that I believe in the process and I am very optimistic. I am sure 'Padmavati' will come out. Once people see the film, they will be proud of it like we are. All of this will be forgotten then," said the 36-year-old.
