javed akhtar tweets facts about padmavati and gets trolled

renowned screenwriter and lyricist javed akhtar found himself on the receiving end of a flak on twitter. javed akhtar was trolled when he posted facts about rani padmini. for the uninitiated, a huge controversy was created around sanjay leela bhansali’s upcoming movie padmavati, that is inspired from rani padmini. a rajput outfit in rajasthan vandalized the sets and also  aulted the director, alleging that the movie showed a dream romantic sequence between padmini and alauddin khilji.

this act was condemned by many in the film fraternity. wading straight into the debate, javed akhtar posted facts about rani padmini. in his tweets, he wrote that padmawat was the first hindi novel written by malik mohammad jaisi during akbar’s era and added that it was pure fiction just like salim and anarkali.

the screenwriter also called the right-wingers ignorant for thinking khilji as another mughal emperor.
