Bhansali was attacked and the sets were vandalized by an organisation called Rajput Karni Sena in Rajasthan earlier in January. Now that the film is nearing release, the troubles are mounting for producers Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions with allegations of distortion of history and “dishonouring” Padmini.
