Amid the much-hyped controversy revolving around Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming epic historical drama "Padmavati", superstar Salman Khan has extended his support to the celebrated filmmaker. Salman also cleared out that Bhansali will never show anyone in a bad light. He has also urged that there is a full-fledged official body for this concern, therefore, let the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) take a decision. During an interview with news channel News18, Salman said;
Bhansali and Salman have worked together producing three films namely "Khamoshi", "Hum Dil Chuke Sanam" and "Saawariya", the actor feels that no decision should be made without watching the film. Salman added;I want to say that you have Censor Board, they will take a decision. Sanjay (Leela Bhansali) makes very beautiful and excellent films.
