This is the second time Bhansali has faced the ire of certain groups over the filming of his next magnum opus “Padmavati”, a historic-costume drama based on the legendary Rani Padmini of Chittor in modern day Rajasthan.

On January 27, Bhansali was slapped, roughed up and his film set vandalized by Karni Sena activists in a Jaipur fort for alleged distortions in the film script.

The film is scheduled for a mid-November release this year.
