At a row contention during FICCI Frames patrician “Controlling Creativity: Is Censorship Relevant?”, a judge asked Shyam Benegal, “Are we in risk of going behind to a ’70s with Padmaavat, Udta Punjab and now even a film being finished on Rani Jhansi, where a producers are already shivering? Are we vital in those times?”

To that a acclaimed filmmaker replied, “We substantially are going behind to it in some ways. we consider so. In 1975-77, my possess films one after a other faced problems. One film was even banned. We are going in that kind of a thing. That’s because we contend we need a discuss on a incomparable scale.”
