Top Indian filmmaker slapped, beaten for love scenes
Published at: 11 month(s) ago
NEW DELHI: Well-known Indian filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was attacked and the sets of his film “Padmavati” at a fort in Jaipur were vandalized by protesters who alleged that the film shows a much-celebrated Rajput queen in poor light, NDTV reported.

Mr Bhansali is slapped, beaten and his hair is pulled by members of the Rajput Karni Sena, who stormed the shoot at Jaigarh Fort.

They shouted protests and alleged that the film has love scenes between Queen Padmini and ruler Alauddin Khilji, played by actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.

The Karni Sena says Padmini was a proud queen known for taking her own life rather than submit to Alauddin Khilji, the emperor who attacked the Chittorgarh Fort.

Padmini committed “Jauhar” or immolated herself with scores of other women as Alauddin Khilji waited to conquer the fort and claim her.

The Rajput Karni Sena has demanded that Mr Bhansali delete such scenes in the film if any.
