Amish Tripathi, bestselling author of mythological fiction, has vouched for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s forthcoming controversial movie Padmaavat, saying it celebrates Rajput bravery and projects India’s culture in a positive way.

Tripathi watched the movie in a pre-release screening in Mumbai on January 15, 2018.

“It is a film which celebrates Rajput bravery. It honours Rani Padmavati. And it says positive things about our culture. I think it is one of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s finest films,” he tweeted.
