The run-up to Deepawali, the festival of lights, mirth, and celebration has not been really kind to producer/director Sanjay Leela Bhansali as his forthcoming film Padmavati is getting stuck into one controversy after another.
Following the outrage of Rajasthan’s Karni Sena, vandalisation of the film’s set, and burning down of props, in the latest event being reported from Surat, Gujarat, artist Karan K’s hard labour of more than two days, a beautiful rangoli of Padmavati was destroyed by a mob of about 100 people.
The mob while shouting ‘Jai Shree Ram’ reached the spot and in less than a minute ruined the work of art.
Karan shared the pictures of the incident on Twitter with the caption “#padmavati Rangoli controversy! A crowd of 100 people cried JAY SRI RAM n rubbed out my 48 hrs’ intense work! @deepikapadukone@FilmPadmavati.”
