You all might have known till now that Sanjay Leela Bhansali was attacked in a shameful act at Jaipur. The entire cast of the movie Padmavati was present in Jaipur to complete the second schedule of the movie. And then the unexpected happened. Rajput Karni Sena visited the sets of Padmavati and it became one of the most disgraceful incident of Bollywood. Not only the entire sets were destructed but the notable director of Bollywood Sanjay leela Bhansali was attacked and his clothes were also torn. It was heard that the attackers claimed that in the movie facts have been destroyed and Padmavati and the state of Rajasthan has been portrayed in the wrong light.But we all know that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one of the most critical and acclaimed of all times. He has been making historic movies since ages and it’s known that he presents the history in one of the most amazing ways to the television. So, an attack on such a director is really a shame for the entire country and film fraternity.
This is what the industry has to say. Read below the tweets of who’s and who of Bollywood.

Very very sad. Words do fall short and feel too little to express feelings. Violence is unacceptable. This incident has shocked me.

I’m waiting to see how many people are punished for what they’ve done to #SanjayLeelaBhansali & his crew. There’s enough evidence.

How do you take justice in your hands without knowing what the facts are. Shameful! So much for Karni Sena’s reputation. With you Sanjay!

If you’re that courageous,give us your first name to acknowledge.#padmavati

Post all this the director and the entire unit of the film is in a state of shock. And as per the latest reports the cast and crew of the film has decided to stop the Jaipur schedule of the movie and has packed their bags for Mumbai indeed.
Well, as they say there is a freedom for speech and expression but only to a limit. It should not be misused by anyone.
