Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali assaulted by protesters

     Renowned filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was assaulted by a group of thugs and damaged his crew’s equipment and created a ruckus at Jaigarh Fort in Jaipur where Bhansali was shooting his latest movie Padmavati. Police said they were protesting against the portrayal of Padmavati — or Rani Padmini — in the film. “About 60 men, affiliated to Shri Rajput Karni Sena, reached Jaigarh Fort around 1 pm and indulged in sloganeering. They were unhappy over Rani Padmini’s portrayal in the film. They claimed that the film has intimate scenes between the queen and Alauddin Khilji,” said Narendra Kumar, SHO of Amer police station. The police said the film crew was startled by the sudden protest, which quickly escalated to violence.
