While all other stars, big and small seem to be scared and totally quiet on the Padmavati controversy, Salman Khan is the only person who is not afraid of speaking his heart out. Salman who reacted to the entire controversy on Bigg Boss has now again ‘referred’ to it – albeit in a lighter manner.
Answering questions on the issue of how Sanjay Leela Bhansali has offended some people with his Padmavati, Salman retorted ““Don’t know about others but Sanjay Leela Bhansali has definitely offended me,”
Before you jump to any conclusion relating his comment to Padmavati, let us inform you that he was referring to his love-hate relationship with Bhansali and his on-off work equation with the director whom Salman gave his first hit with Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam. “I gave him two hits but he still chose Shah Rukh Khan for Devdas” rues Salman.
Not that Bhansali did not try working with Salman again. Not only he had originally planned Bajrao Mastaani with Salman playing Bajirao (It did not work out) but he also got the Megastar to do a special appearance in his Sanwariya. In fact some time back there were rumours of Salman once again being directed by Bhansali in his next venture after Padmavati.
Well if that happens, great for the fans of Salman. Hope the film does not land up in another controversy like previous Bhansali films though.
