Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the maker of ‘Padmavati’, a period drama is garnering support from every nooks and corner.

Veteran actor Kamal Hasan has now voiced support to ‘Padmavati’ saying people are being “oversensitive” about the film. It is wrong to demand a ban on the film without even watching it, said Hasan.

“I haven’t seen the film (Padmavati). Nobody saw ‘Vishwaroopam’ still they wanted me banned. It’s wrong... It should come out (release) and if then there is something then I can understand.

“I think we are being oversensitive. I’m not talking as a filmmaker but as an Indian,” Haasan said.

“What happened with ‘Hey Ram’? Some Congress leader, just by looking at the poster, thought there is something wrong in it. They don’t know what I’m making and they are saying that it should be banned. They judged a film without even seeing it.

“We are ready to believe the negativity. We have become cynical,” he said.
