Here’s what Suchitra Krishnamoorthi has to say about Swara Bhasker’s open letter to Sanjay Leela Bhansali on Padmaavat. Not historical fiction.”
Padmaavat, which has been released after a gruelling battle against members of fringe groups who were protesting the depiction of Rajputs in the film, is being criticised by a number of activists and individuals for glorifying and making the film as a tribute to Rajput pride, perhaps even to a fault. Swara, who has been vocal about several issues and has worked with Bhansali in Guzaarish, voiced her opinion via an open letter calling out the filmmaker for glorifying Sati and Jauhar in his film and said that she felt reduced to a vagina by the end of it.

Funny that an actress who can play an erotic dancer/ prostitute with such elan should feel like a vagina after watching a story of a pious queen.

Arent these feminist debates on #Padmaavat rather dumb?. Krishnamoorthi slammed the actress on Twitter. Actors Aditi Rao Hydari, Jim Sarbh, Raza Murad and Anupriya Goenka feature in supporting roles. Find another battle for your cause – a real one at all. It’s a story ladies – not an advocacy of Jauhar for God’s sake. On Sunday, she tweeted: “Funny that an actress who can play an erotic dancer/prostitute with such elan should feel like a vagina after watching a story of a pious queen. Funny that in a 2440 word article making fairly comprehensible arguments they only remember the word Vagina So… Vagina vagina vagina vagina vagina vagina..vagina vagina VAGINA!”

I loved the performances by all the actors in #Padmaavat – The film is seductive in its grandeur, scale, beauty, power of its actors’s performances, music, design, vision… and therein lies the problem! The film which released on January 25, features actor Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, alongside Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Sultan Alauddin Khilji.
