In an unfortunate incident on Friday, renowned filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali was slapped and his hair pulled by protestors of a fringe group, Karni Sena, on the set of his upcoming movie ‘Padmavati’ in Jaipur. The miscreants were protesting against the plot of the historical drama featuring Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranvir Singh. Reportedly the movie based on the life of Queen Padmini, showed the Queen in wrong light and the heated uproar erupted over an alleged love making scenes between Queen Padmini and Alauddin Khilji.
