The movie’s shoot went through a lot of hurdles. In January, activists of Rajput Karni Sena had assaulted Bhansali and vandalised the movie’s Jaipur set over alleged distortions in the film’s script.

Later, once the filmmaker had moved the film’s shoot to Maharashtra, an outdoor set of the historic period drama in Kolhapur was reduced to ashes after two dozen unidentified persons torched it in March. (IANS)

Actress Yami Gautam, who will next be seen in the upcoming film “Uri”, says there is a need for stories of more stronger women on the silver screen.

Yami is excited to be a part of a real life story based on the armed forces. So much so, that it instantly inspired her to hope to bring forth stories of women who have been trailblazers and pioneers in the armed forces in India.

“With the way content is evolving and such compelling stories coming out, there’s a great need for stories of more stronger women. Some amazingly strong powerful women characters have been seen in recent films,” Yami said in a statement.

The 29-year-old actress is inspired by two women Punita Arora, the first woman in India to attain the rank of Lt. Genaral in the Indian Army and Priya Jhingan who wrote a letter to the then Army Chief in 1992 to be accepted as a woman in the armed forces and a year later she was, becoming the first Indian woman to have joined the Army.
