After Sets Put On Fire, Now Bhansali’s Effigy Burnt


Mumbai: It seems that Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ambitious film ‘Padmavati‘ will have to face numerous hurdles before its release in November.

While the public assault on Bhansali and vandalism on the sets of his film in Jaipur made headlines few weeks ago, another such instance on the sets of the film in Kolhapur this week added more misery to the team of the film.

While the attackers, who even put the sets in Kolhapur on fire, are still unidentified, the attack in Jaipur was reportedly carried out by the Karni Sena acivists.

The alleged activists of the organisation have protested again, this time by burning an effigy of Bhansali in Nallasopara, near Mumbai on Saturday.

They even screamed chants that they would not allow the film to release.

The fringe outfit is protesting the ‘distortion’ of facts related to Rajput Queen Padmavati in the film. The outfit is particularly agitated at reports of there being being a lovemaking scene between Padmavati and tyrant Alauddin Khilji.

The team of the film have repeatedly emphasised that there is no such sequence between Padmavati and Khilji, to be played by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh respectively.

The two attacks have caused immense monetary loss to the makers.
