Protest Against ‘Padmavati’ Shooting In Jaipur


Jaipur: Activists of a local organisation today demonstrated against Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’, which is being shot here, for allegedly distorting historical facts.

Members of Karni Sena stalled the shooting of film at the Jaigarh fort.

“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 protesters also met the director.

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.
