Activists of a local organisation today demonstrated against Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati', which is being shot in here, for allegedly distorting historical facts.
The members of Karni Sena attacked Sanjay Leela Bhansali and stalled the shoot at the Jaigarh fort. The filmmaker was slapped, beaten and his hair was also pulled by the members of the organisation.
"The film is presenting wrong facts about 'Padmavati'. Our basic protest is about distortion of historic facts which will not be tolerated," Vikram Singh, a Karni Sena activist said.
The movie set was also vandalized by the protestors who alleged that the film shows a much-celebrated Rajput queen, Rani Padmini in poor light and demanded the filmmaker to delete such degrading scenes.
Deepika Padukone plays queen Padmavati opposite Shahid Kapoor's Ratan Singh. Ranveer Singh is in the role of Alauddin Khilji in the movie, which marks Bhansali's return to period era after the success of ‘Bajirao Mastani’.
