After facing a huge amount of controversies, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Padmaavat" saw the light of the day after getting a green signal from the Supreme court and the film was finally released on January 24th, 2018.
While the lead actors had refrained themselves from giving out any interviews or statements about the film before it's release, last night, after the film was released, lead actress of the film, Deepika Padukone reacted on the whole ban scenario.
She was present at the HT Most Stylish Awards 2018 and during her media interactions she said that she is confident that despite the political furore over the film, its box office collection will be "earth-shattering".
When she was asked about her views on the people who were constantly opposing the release and what response she wants to give them, she said: "I think there is time for everything and the film has spoken for itself as most have given their reactions to our film (through screenings and press shows) and it's been absolutely phenomenal."
"I feel, in a way, the best response that we can give to anyone is through the work that we do. We are very excited about the release and we are extremely overwhelmed.
"I am very emotional at this point. I am not someone who has ever been excited so much about box-office numbers but I have to say that this time I am. I think it's going to be earth-shattering."
She further added: "The release of 'Padmaavat' is a big day for all of us."
"On behalf of our team, I want to thank the entire media for being so supportive throughout. I think now it's really time for us to celebrate and see the film do wonders at the box-office."
