The 31-year-old actress, who is playing the lead role of Rani Padmavati in the film, expressed her anger in a series of tweets. 

The actress assured that the team behind the film is not distorting any historical facts and their aim is to bring on-screen the story of "courageous and powerful" Padmavati.

Bhansali, was shooting for his new film in Jaipurs Jaigarh Fort, when he was assaulted by activists of a Rajput community group, Karni Sena, who also vandalised the set and stalled the shooting.

The movie stars Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor as Raja Ratan Singh.

None of the stars were present at the shooting location when the incident occured. Bhansali was filming with the secondary cast.

"Padmavati" is set to hit the theatres in November this year.

The director is yet to react on the incident that has angered the entire film industry.
