Karni Sena activists vandalise Kota theatre for showing 'Padmavati' trailer

Padmavati row: From Karan Johar to Salman Khan, here's how Bollywood is supporting Sanjay Leela Bhansali's vision

Armed with sticks and rods, the group of men went on a rampage as they broke glass windows and doors of the cinema hall in Akash Mall and raised slogans against the filmmakers. The police have arrested eight people for the incident. He also raised an objection over releasing the trailer of the film.

Though police did not confirm it, but Sena sources claimed that the protest was held as the theatre was showing a trailer of the movie. They had issued warnings that they would set theatres on fire if the movie was screened.

Meanwhile, film distributors in Rajasthan are wary of releasing the film which tells the tale of Rani Padmavati - the legendary Mewar queen, her husband Maharawal Ratan Singh- a Rajput ruler and Alauddin Khilji - an ambitious and obsessive invader.

This is not the first incident when Karni Sena resorted to violence to show it anger towards the film.

On the other side, the director has been claiming that there is no such scene that would hurt anyone's sentiments.

Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the movie found itself in the line of fire for its rumoured distortion of historical facts.

The outrage over Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati intensified on Tuesday with not only Rajputs but Brahmins, Vaishyas, OBCs and Muslim communities rallying together to oppose the film for insulting Hindus and warning of violence if it is released. Mr. Abdul Salam Sankhla, one of the leaders of Muslim maha sabha also said that this will destroy the communal harmony in the state of Rajasthan and in India as well so this film must be banned to maintain the communal peace and harmony. What have we gotten ourselves into?

The controversy around Padmavati, starring Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, is only heating up with every passing day.

The Hindi film industry has come out in support of the period drama criticising the protest.
