Addressing the controversy surrounding his upcoming period drama 'Padmavati', Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, on Tuesday said, he is '200 percent with the film and filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali'. He added that it's a very sensitive time and has been asked to maintain silence over it.

The film has been facing protests from various communal groups, including Shri Rajput Karni Sena, for allegedly tampering with historical facts.
