Makers of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati said on Monday they are ready to screen the film for those who have doubts about its content, once the film is passed by the Censor Board.

Ajit Andhare, Chief Operating Officer, Viacom18 Motion Pictures, said the claims that film is a distortion of history are not true. “We are first looking at the Censor Board (for clearance) and then we don’t have a problem (to show the film) because they are imagining something different and we would like to quell all these doubts first. But ideally we want to get the certificate first,” he said.

He added that they do not want the film to get stuck in any further controversy and are waiting to hear from the Censor Board.

“We are going to this length as we want to quell the controversy; it is a needless controversy. The film doesn’t need it. The film has its own merit and we just want that the censor board gives us a screening date.”
