Jaipur: Members of the Shri Rajput Karni Sena, an organisation representing Rajputs, burnt posters of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming movie ‘Padmavati’. They also accused Bhansali of backtracking on a “promise” to screen the film before a panel of intellectuals before its release.
Karni Sena members also threatened to oppose the screening of the movie in theatres if the facts are distorted.
Earlier in January the activists of the group vandalised the movie set at Jaigarh Fort, alleging that the director was “distorting facts”.
Helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the historical drama stars Deepika as Rani Padmavati, Shahid as Raja Rawal Ratan and Ranveer as Alauddin Khijli.
On September 21 the Mastani of Bollywood took to Twitter and shared the first look of ‘Padmavati’.
