"We will respect the decision that CBFC takes as it is a government body".

"I gave him two hits but he still chose Shah Rukh Khan for Devdas", he said, on a lighter note.

BJP MP Anurag Thakur issued a statement yesterday which read, "Taking a stand to bring an end to the controversy, Member of Parliament Anurag Thakur-led Parliamentary Standing Committee on IT, has invited Secretary of Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Chairperson of Central Board of Film Certification, along with Director of the film Sanjay Leela Bhansali, to present their views on the controversy surrounding the movie". Joshi told the panel that the film had not yet been approved and the board only cleared the trailer and promos of the period film. The protests against the film were based on "rumours".

Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali appeared before a parliamentary panel to explain that his now controversial film "Padmavati" does not display anything in distortion of history as is being alleged.

The Lok Sabha panel took up the issue following a representation by two BJP MPs from Rajasthan - C P Joshi (Chittorgarh) and Om Birla (Kota) - who wanted a ban to be imposed on the film's release.

Sources told IANS that the film-maker was asked why he had screened the movie for a few select journalists even before it was cleared by the censor board. He also pointed out at the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology that the panel's proceedings were pointless.

Sources said Joshi told the Committee that he had appointed a panel of experts to examine the film and provide inputs to the CBFC. The makers of the movie have responded the question on how the makers of the movie can send the movie to the United Kingdom for the certification.

The panel had asked the officials for a report before November 30, senior BJP leader Bhagat Singh Koshiyari, who heads the panel, had said earlier.

Wondering if creating controversy was a new trend to sell the movie, the panel members pointed out that the media was giving free space due to the ongoing row and even social media had given the movie enormous space. "We have raised objections to that too in this committee". The 51-year-old answered the questions on the ongoing controversy of Padmavati quite cleverly and diplomatically.
