According the reports, the security on the sets was beefed ever since the Jaipur attack had happened. On Wednesday morning, around 20 to 30 people had allegedly reached the sets with stones, petrol bombs and lathis and fought with the bodygaurds and boucers present on the set. The film set was torched down and the cars parked around the sets were badly damaged. Panhala Police Station, Dhanya Kumar Gods, revealed that the attackers had even burned all the costumes. According to the officials, the gaurds had caught two attackers but later were attacked by other group members and escaped.
