In January this year, Sanjay Leela Bhansali was attacked in Jaipur when he was shooting for his grand period film Padmavati. The attack was carried out by members of Karni Sena who alleged that Bhansali has distorted Rajput history with this film. The director then reached out to senior members of Karni Sena and it seemed like the matter ended there.
But that’s not the case. In Jaipur, the members of Karni Sena assembled in front of Raj Mandir theatre and shouted slogans against Sanjay Leela Bhansali. They also tore the posters of the film.
Padmavati stars Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor. It releases on December 1, 2017.
