Watch: Epicentre With Marya Shakil

Nov 10, 2017 09:18 PM IST India India

Over the last few months, Sanjay Leela Bansali's magnum opus Padmavati has been held hostage to 'hooliganism' and Bhansali has been accused of distorting history based on speculation that the film has a dream sequence between invader Alauddin Khilji and queen of Mewar Rani Padmavati which the film director has refuted strongly. But the question arises: Is the controversy surrounding the release of Padmavati meaningless because there is no written history to prove that the queen of Mewar ever existed? Is Padmavati a myth just like Helen of Troy? But today, I ask if it's about history then who has the right to interpret history? Can freedom of speech and expression come at the cost of hurting sentiments? Watch Epicentre with Marya Shakil for more.
