‘None of my films has been easy to shoot’
Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has wrapped up the shoot for Padmavati, which has been mired in controversy right from its conception to pre-release activity. But the filmmaker says he doesn’t think about negative forces.
“None of my films has been easy to shoot. From the time I directed my first film, I’ve fought against all odds. My first film was declared a flop on the first day of release and there were reports of enraged viewers breaking their seats inside the theatre. I wondered what I had done to incur their wrath,” Bhansali says.
“I don’t think of the struggle, the suffering and the strife as negative forces. They are my incentives to make the films that I want to make. If I had to make a stress-free film, I’d be really worried,” added the filmmaker, known for movies like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Black, and Goliyon Ki Raasleela RamLeela.
