NEW DELHI: Bollywood actor Vidya Balan, who has been busy promoting her upcoming film ‘Tumhari Sulu’, restrained herself from commenting over the ongoing controversy facing Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmavati’.

Speaking exclusively to ANI, the ‘Begum Jaan’ actress said she did not want to make any loose comment, especially being the member of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), as she was not aware about the actual series of events.

“Because I am in the middle of 'Tumhari Sulu' promotions, I have not kept myself updated about the controversary regarding ‘Padmavati’. So, I don’t want to make any loose comment about anything, especially being the member of the CBFC,” she said.

'Padmavati' has been embroiled in a spate of controversies ever since its inception. The period drama starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor has been facing protests from various communal groups, including Shree Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering historical facts.

The Karni Sena, which demolished the sets of the movie in Jaipur and also thrashed Bhansali, has again warned the director that he would face consequences if the movie didn't contain proper truth or facts.
