“As a child, I never got to celebrate my birthday. My sister and I were not even allowed to attend birthday parties. Having said that, I see no reason to celebrate, birthday or no birthday. The fate of Padmaavat was never in our hands, or in the hands of those who wanted to stop it. I have just one question for those who don’t like my film, many of them without seeing it: Who decides what the audience should see and like?”
During recent interaction gave an insight into his next project and was quoted saying that “My work, my cinema is the only impetus. I have to wake up every morning with hope in my heart. The past year has been traumatic for me. I am yet to process all the levels of attack I went through. I only want to feel thankful that our film has been seen by the public and liked… except by those who invariably think my cinema is about excesses. To them I can only say sorry, I will try harder next time to please you.”
Padmaavat has become Deepika Padukone 7th film in the 100 cr club and her hattrick in the 200 cr club.
