The censor board officials expressed their anger for showing the film to the media before screening to the officials. The director revealed that he has no other choice except that because he has to prove that the film has no controversial stuff. The panel made allegations that Bhansali is trying to cash on emotions and opposed the film.
On the other side, BJP leader LK Advani has extended his support to Bhansali. Advani told that the panel has no need to involve in this issue and said that his support is with the makers.
