MUMBAI: In the wake of a controversy surrounding upcoming Bollywood film ‘Padmavati’, Union minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi Sunday said he saw films as films, without getting into the history or geography as depicted in them.

Asked whether he opposed the film's release, the minority affairs minister said, "What you like in a film, should be accepted and what you do not like, should be left there. I am neither supporting nor opposing the film."

On the ongoing protests against the film, he said, "I see films as films and do not get into its history or geography."

‘Padmavati’, which is scheduled to release on December 1, has been facing a lot of trouble since early this year.

Its director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, was assaulted by the activists of a Rajput community group, the Karni Sena, during the shooting of the film in Jaipur.

The group is seeking a ban on ‘Padmavati’, claiming that history has been "distorted" in the film.
