by on January 28, 2017

New Delhi: Day after Bollywood filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali roughed up while he was shooting for his upcoming film Padmavait in Jaipur, shameful statement of Home Minister of Rajasthan has poured the oil on the burning fire.

While justifying the cowared act of violence, Minister GC Kataria said anger abounds in such kind of cases. However, Law will take its course against the accused.

However, Bollywood celebs seen unite over the issue. Karan Johar, Farahan Akhtar, Anushka, Priyanka chopra came up and criticised the incident in one voice and call for action against the accused involve in beating Sanjay Leela Bhansali and persecuting the crew of the film.

Filmmaker Karan Johar writes in twitter: “Thoughts of what has transpired with Sanjay Bhansali today are just not leaving me!! Feeling helpless and angry!! This cannot be our future!”

Actor Producer Farhan actor said: “My fellow film folk, if we do not unite now against these recurring incidents of bullying, it’s going to get much worse”. Upon this Karan Johar replied: “No member of our industry should be silent on this matter!!! It’s call for unity and NOT selective indifference!!!”.

Farhan later said: “I’m waiting to see how many people are punished for what they’ve done to Sanjay Leela Bhansali & his crew. There’s enough evidence”. Actor Anushka Sharma said she is appalled since the incident has happened. She wrote on Twitter: “Appalled & horrified by what happened on SLB set. NO amount of difference of opinion or disagreement justifies this pathetic behaviour. Shameful!”.

Actor Anushka Sharma said: It’s appalling to hear what happened to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. I am so saddened. Violence is not what our forefathers taught us.

Bollywood stars have expressed that no stern prosecution against the perpetrator will come out following the statement of Rajasthan’s Home Minister.

However, the founder of Rajput Karani Sena- the group that attacks the crew- Lokander Singh Kalvi said he has no regret about the incident. “Does Sanjay Leela Bhansali has guts to go to the Germani and make a film against Hitler with his crew?” Bhansali doesn’t have such kind of status. He can’t muster up the courage to do so. Lokander said.

He further said Bhansali would not be allowed to come up at Rajput’s Land and make fun of our ancestor Padmavati. He is tempering the history and presenting Padmavati in wrong light.

Bhansali and his crew were attacked yesterday while they were shooting in one of the fort in Jaipur.
