The family said that it stands with Shree Rajput Karni Sena and other such national organisations, which want to keep alive the rich and proud history of Rajasthan.

The statement also pointed out that disciplinary action is being taken against the erring officials of the department, which has been set up by the family to take care of shootings and to take necessary permissions in regard to shooting of films and advertisements.

“This department did not provide full information to the royal family relating to the film `Padmavati` and gave permission to shoot it,” the statement said.

Shooting for films, serials and advertisements take place frequently in the different historic palaces belonging to the Jaipur royal family on a regular basis.

The statement further went on to say that the family stands committed to protect the proud history of Rajasthan. Anyone attempting to twist or change the history of Rajasthan will not be tolerated.

On January 27, activists of the Rajput organisation Shree Rajput Karni Sena protested, misbehaved and manhandled the crew of “Padmavati”.

They also damaged some cameras and other equipment. Bhansali had to stop shooting.(IANS)
