Even as the controversies surrounding Padmavati continue to flare up instead of dying down, more and more people are coming out in support for either side. Among the celebrities that have come out in support of the film's director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, and star Deepika Padukone, are veteran actors like Shabana Azmi and Kamal Hassan, but many prominent names haven't made their views on the issue public.

While Bollywood's major stars, including the Khans may be wary of openly airing their opinion for fear of a backlash, that hasn't stopped them from reaching out to support Deepika privately.

According to a source, "The moment Aamir read the news, he immediately called up Deepika to check on her. He was extremely concerned about her. Aamir and Deepika had a long conversation about the whole scenario and he assured her of being there for her if needed. Deepika’s other co-stars including Shah Rukh Khan also called Deepika. Everyone has expressed concern. Deepika, on the other hand, is maintaining an extremely strong stand."

Fringe Rajput and Hindu elements show no sign of relenting in their protests to ban Padmavati, which has postponed its original release date of December 1.
