With Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film 'Padmaavat''s release, protests led by Rajput communities and other fringe outfits took a violent form in various parts of the country, yesterday.
Violence stirred in Haryana's Gurugram as protestors restricted the movement of vehicles across the road and also torched a bus and pelted stones at Sohna Road.
The protestors vowed to block the film in defiance of the Supreme Court orders.
