The Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been working on his upcoming film Padmavati starring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The sets of the film are arranged at Jaigarh Fort, Jaipur. The sets of the movie Padmavati were broke into by the protestors of Karni Sena and they started shouting slogans, abuses and attacked Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

The Video Above shows how the protestors vandalized the whole set and how they mistreated the Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali while abusing him at the sets of padmavati.

The act of the Karni Sena resulted into damage of cameras and sets resulting into stoppage of shooting of the film padmavati.  When asked from the protesters, “We had earlier requested him (Bhansali) to show us the script which he did not do. We are against distorting of historical facts and we know that he has distorted historical facts,” Vivek Singh of Karni Sena told IANS

“We will only allow him to shoot after we see the script,” Singh said.

Why the Protestors Attacked Sanjay Leela Bhansali?

One may ask that what was the reason behind so much chaos?, Why the director Sanjay leela Bhansali was attacked?  Here is the answer,  The protesters alleged that the film has love/sex scenes between Queen Padmini and Alauddin Khilji. The protesters said they had asked Bhansali to delete such scenes in the film if any as it reflects badly upon the queen.

“We had warned the filmmaker against presenting wrong facts. When we came to know about the shooting, we gathered there and protested,” said a leader of the group, Narayan Singh.

Actually the movie Padmavati casting Shahid Kapoor, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone is based upon the story of Queen Padmavati who refused to give in and submit to the Conquering King Alauddin Khilji when he arrived at the Chittorgarh fort and Queen along with her other companions killed herself by jumping into a well of Fire famously know as “Johar”, as some historians quote it.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali has earlier also been under fire by some groups for presenting wrong facts during the time of Movie Bajirao Mastani.

The Jaipur police has been quoted by the Press Trust of India as saying that Bhansali has decided to stop filming in the area. “The filmmakers have assured that they will not shoot here and will pack up,” senior police officer Anshuman Bhomia told PTI.

What should we call it triumph of hooliganism over freedom of expression or the check on the attack towards culture? well question is quite debatable at least during this time but Who can Justify Violence of such kind by Karni Sena.
