NEW DELHI - Director of the controversial movie 'Padmavati', Sanjay Leela Bhansali appeared before Parliamentary Standing Committee to defend his work in a two hour long session.

Sanjay maintained his stance saying that the movie did not distort any historical facts and was based on a 16th century poem written by Malik Muhammad Jayasi

"All the controversy over the film is based on rumours. I have not distorted facts. The film is based on a poem by Malik Muhammad Jayasi. We don't intend to hurt anyone's sentiments," said Bhansali, referring to the 16th century Indian sufi poet’s epic poem Padmavat.

The panel is yet to take a decision about the movie. The movie will be shown to regional and central screening committees.
