Anurag Basu speaks in the support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s yet unreleased period film ‘Padmavati’.

Anurag Basu comes out in the support of 'Padmavati'.

Mumbai: Anurag Basu was at the event at the Tata Memorial Centre. When asked for his comment on Deepika Padukone starrer 'Padmavati' controversy, the director said some really important things.

"I think this is bizarre and funny. When the first time the attack (against the makers) happened, the first thing that came to my mind was 'Do they know the script? Have they read it?' The entire controversy is based on perception and assumption and what could be more funny than this? The whole thing is based on 'Maybe' and I find it really bizarre. How can they create such a ruckus on a 'maybe'?"

He believes it is a "win-win for everybody" as "all of them are getting the benefit of the controversy".

"I don't think Sanjay Leela Bhansali should be worried because his film is delayed, as he has many fans, like myself, who will watch the film no matter when it releases," Basu added.

Known for movies like 'Life in a... Metro', 'Gangster', 'Barfi!' and 'Jagga Jasoos', Basu said he is currently working on a few projects simultaneously.

The makers of 'Padmavati' haven't decided on the release date yet.
