‘Padmavati’ row: After Jaipur attack, sets now vandalized in Kolhapur

Kolhapur (Maharashtra), Mar. 15 : Looks like there's no breather for filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali! Months after the attack on the sets of 'Padmavati' in Jaipur, it has yet again been vandalised and set on fire in Kolhapur last night.

Reportedly, a few cars parked outside the sets were also damaged. The movie has been under the radar ever since its announcement. After the Jaipur attack, Bhansali shifted the base to Kolhapur, Maharashtra, to resume the shooting. It was just a few weeks ago that the 'Bajirao Mastani' director resumed shooting at Masai plateau, some 20 kilometers from Kolhapur.

On a related note, Bhansali increased his security after the Jaipur attack, where he was manhandled by the members of Karni Sena and accused of wrongly presenting the facts related to Queen of Chittor Padmavati.

According to Karni Sena's claims, the filmmaker was insulting the Rajputana pride by allegedly showing a romantic sequence between emperor Alauddin Khilji, played by Ranveer Singh, and Rani Padmini, played by Deepika Padukone, which never happened in history.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Bhansali is safe, but the shooting has been stopped till further notice.
