@shahidkapoor - Dude take a bow for your performance in #padmaavat. Splendid performance and my respect for you has gone up tremendously.

I really hope all those who tried to ban #Padmaavat feel thoroughly ashamed of themselves. The film celebrates bravery, valour & honour of Rajputs. Instead of banning it India should be proud of this work of art.@deepikapadukone

#Padmaavat F**kall movie. Glossy fashion show like most bollywood nonsense. Nothing else. Total waste of time and money. Only saver is arijit singh's binte dil song and Khilji's khalibali dance.

I'm soooo excited I'm going to watch Padmaavat again today! Hopefully I'll be paying attention to the movie this time and not just on @shahidkapoor ‘s abs and body. ❤️🤤 #Padmaavat.

Though #Padmaavat is a fairly long movie but doesn't leave u even for a second. Each scene is thoughtfully crafted but few of them stays with us even after the movie gets over. The chess game sequence b/w Khilji & Rawal Ratan and the Climax are few of them.

Watched #Padmaavat yesterday. It is so pro #Rajput. Wondering why so much hullabaloo. #KarniSena move back.

#Padmaavat देखने के बाद समझ नहीं आया कि राजपूत क्यों भड़कें हुए है,जब की फ़िल्म में राजपूतों और #पद्मावती
को तो "अच्छा दिखाया गया है",
भड़कना तो उन्हें चाहिए "था" जो #Khilji को महान मानते हैं,जिसे "अच्छा नहीं दिखाया गया"।
