Bollywood director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has run into trouble with 23-year-old ‘activist’ Hardik Patel who made national headlines in 2015 by being at the forefront of the Patidar Reservation Agitation. Patel has asked Bhansali to stop shooting his upcoming historical film Padmavati to assuage the concerns of the Rajput Sena. In an interview with the Mumbai Mirror, Patel said, “Rajasthan-based Rajput Sena’s members met me and informed that SLB has not studied the history, and could damage the image of Rani Padmavati. So, we’ve informed him to stop the production of the film and hold discussions with Rajput leaders before he begins shooting.”
Pro-Jallikattu activists protested Soundarya Rajinikanth’s recent appointment to the Animal Welfare Board Of India. They staged a massive protest in Trichy yesterday over this appointment, and also burned photos of the filmmaker.
The cause for the protests stems from the fact that the AWBI is one of the primary reasons Jallikattu was banned in Tamilnadu. The Jallikattu supporters are worried over Soundarya’s stand on the issue, as she has committed to working for an organisation that remains bullish in its attitude towards the ‘sport’.
