Dhaulpur [Rajasthan], Jan. 30 (ANI): The Akhil Bhartiya Kshatriya Mahasabha staged a protest in Dhaulpur area of Rajasthan on Monday against director-producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali and his upcoming film 'Padmavati'. This comes days after the Rajput Karni Sena workers created ruckus and vandalised the sets of ' Padmavati' in Jaipur's Nahargarh Fort, claiming that the film shows a much-celebrated Rajput queen in 'poor light'. The protesters manhandled the ace director and alleged that the film has love scenes between Queen Padmini and ruler Alauddin Khilji, played by actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The Karni Sena claims that Padmini was a proud queen known for taking her own life rather than submitting herself to Alauddin Khilji, the emperor who attacked the Chittorgarh Fort. Padmini committed "Jauhar" or immolated herself with scores of other women as Khilji waited to conquer the fort and claim her. The Rajput Karni Sena has demanded that Bhansali should delete such scenes in the film if any. (ANI)
