A few members of Rajput Karni attacked the director and even slapped him making the scene quite tense in Jaipur. There have been sharp reactions which have been coming from the entire film fraternity and top heroes and heroines have been supporting the director in this issue and have even requested the Indian government to take strong action against this.
Padmavati is a story of Rajput princes played by Deepika Padukone. Shahid and Ranveer Singh play the main leads.
Manhandling of Sanjay Leela Bhansali is appalling & total violation of personal rights & freedom of expression. Hope law of land prevails!

For all the upholders of morality targeting artists, please go to the border and vent out your frustration there. Will be more useful!

Bhansali is an artiste and if any country cannot protect its artistes from street hooligans it doesn't deserve to be called a country

I'm waiting to see how many people are punished for what they've done to #SanjayLeelaBhansali & his crew. There's enough evidence.
