Jagpratap Singh Karni | HENB | Jaigarh-Jaipur | Jan 27, 2018:: The habitual anti-Hindu filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was slapped and his hair was pulled on the sets of his film “Padmavati” in Jaipur by protesters who alleged that the film shows a much-celebrated Rajput queen in poor light.
Members of the pro-Hinduwadi Rajput Karni Sena very gallantly stormed the film’s sets at the historic Jaigarh Fort and assaulted Sanjay Leela Bhansali. They also vandalized equipment of the shooting team and tried to raze the set to ground.
“Padmavati”, a historical drama, is based on the story of Hindu Rajput Queen Padmini+, who famously refused to submit to Muslim emperor Alauddin Khilji when he arrived at the Chittorgarh fort with his army and killed herself along with scores of other women before he could storm the fort. In fact, Rani Padmavati opted self-immolation with many her women followers to protect themselves from the last of the Muslim attackers.
The protesters alleged that the film has love scenes between Queen Padmini and Alauddin Khilji, played by actors Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh.
‘These bastard screen players like Deepika or Ranveer also do not care for any historicity and always lick the feets of the producers for the want of money,’ tells an protester and warned the actors who do want to hurt the Hindu sentiments by their tendency to mock the ‘Hindu Pride’ and ‘History of India’.
Now, the Rajput Karni Sena demanded that Mr Bhansali delete such scenes in the film if any, but the film maker could treated the Hindus’ protests were some show-thing.
“We had warned the filmmaker against presenting wrong facts. When we came to know about the shooting, we gathered there and protested,” said a leader of the group, Narayan Singh.
Another activist Vikram Singh said the film is presenting wrong facts about Padmavati.
“Our basic protest is about distortion of historic facts which will not be tolerated,” he said.
He alleged that a security guard opened fire in the air which created panic. However, police denied the allegation.
After the shooting was stalled, Bhansali and his team members talked to the Karni Sena and assured them that their demands would be looked into.
“The filmmakers have assured that they will not shoot here and will pack up,” DCP North Anshuman Bhomia said.
The Karni Sena members warn the Film Censor Board of India that nobody will be allowed to rape Indian History and hurt the Hindu sentiments in the name of art and freedom of expression.
Actually, it is good to the Film Censor Board must issue a circular that every filmmaker must submit three copies of script of the upcoming films specially it is based on some historical or Dharmik character or story for judging its historicity and context at least by three reputed institutions and authorities.
