A group of activists from Karni Sena, a local organisation, vandalised the set alleging the Director of distorting historical facts and portraying Rani Padmavati in poor light. SLB was also beaten up by the activists.
Following the attack, Bollywood stood in complete solidarity with the ace Director.
