Amish Tripathi, a master of mythological fiction
titles, has vouched for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's forthcoming controversial movie
"Padmaavat", saying it celebrates Rajput bravery and projects India's culture in
a positive way.
Tripathi watched the movie in a pre-release screening here on Monday.
"It is a film which celebrates Rajput bravery. It honours Rani Padmavati. And it says positive things about our culture. I think it is one of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's finest films," he tweeted.
The Bhansali Productions and Viacom18 Motion Pictures movie is slated to release on January 25. It features Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor in a story based on "Padmavat", an epic "revered work of fiction" by Sufi poet Malik Muhammad Jayasi.
Shobha Sant, CEO, Bhansali Productions, thanked Tripathi for his "honest opinion".
