Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali had the shock of his life when some local groups attacked his shoot in Jaipur. Bhansali and his team were shooting for “Padmavati” at the iconic Jai Garh fort in Jaipur when this incident happened. The group of people, who belong to the Kani Sena, thrashed Bhansali and his team and tried to damage the set. It has been reported that Sanjay was even slapped by these attackers.
It has been reported that the local people are upset with the artistic liberties Sanjay seems to be taking in his film. There is reportedly a dream sequence in Padmavati which obviously never happened. The people feel that such scenes show Queen Padmavati in a poor light.
Padmavati is the story of Allaudin Khilji who invaded Rajasthan because he wanted to conquer Queen Padmavati, who was married to Raja Rawal Ratan Singh.
