Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's much talked about film 'Padmaavat' is winning accolades at the box office and among audiences alike. The film has already crossed the Rs.250 crore mark at the box office but Padmaavat's journey to success hasn't been an easy one with the film facing backlash, violent protests and threats from fringe groups. While the film has won the battle against all the drama, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is still overcoming the trauma that he faced before the release of the film.
Bhansali was threatened by fringe groups for distorting facts in his historical drama and a prize money was announced for beheading him.
In an interview, he confessed that the past year has been a traumatic one for him and he is yet to process everything that he went through. He also added that somewhere down the line, he will have to bring all the sordid experiences out and deal with it. Bhansali also thanked audiences for liking and appreciating his film.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be turning 55 on February 24. Talking about birthdays, Bhansali revealed that as a child he never got to celebrate his birthday. In fact, he and his sister Bela Sehgal were not even allowed to attend birthday parties.
