The protest surrounding around the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film 'Padmavati' just turned horrific after some members of the Karni Sena vandalised Aakash theatre in Kota because they filmed the trailer of Padmavati on their screen.

The whole incident of the violence was caught on camera by a leading news agency. In the video, you can see the angered members of Karni Sena smashing the theatre windows and ticket counters. Reportedly, eight people have been arrested after this act.

"In a democracy, everyone has right to protest. If they protest democratically, no one will have an objection. If they take law in their hands, then they will be punishable under law. I have been told that 8 people have been arrested," said Rajasthan Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria.

The members of Karni Sena before this act had earlier vandalised the sets of Padmavati and blamed Bhansali for portraying Rani Padmini in a bad light.

Amidst these controversies, Deepika Padukone who essays the role of Rani Padmini in the film earlier today said that the film will win a bigger battle for the industry. She said, "As a woman, I feel proud to be a part of this film and to tell this story, which needs to be told. And it needs to be told now".

Expressing her views on the protest, she pointed, "It's appalling, it's absolutely appalling. What have we gotten ourselves into? And where have we reached as a nation? We have regressed".

To which BJP leader Subramanian Swamy responded saying, "Cine actress Deepika Padukone giving us a lecture on regression!! The nation can progress only when it is a regression from her perspective".

We wonder what lies next in the fate of this film. Hoping the controversies to settle down soon and let there be peace.
