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)
