Finally, there is flicker of hope of a thaw between Bhansali and the Sena.

Though, founder of Rajput Karni Sena Lokendra Singh Kalvi has tentatively rejected Bhansali’s invitation describing it “drama”, he said that he might see the film on one condition – and that is, his feedback should be accepted and incorporated in the film.
