As our heart bleeds for Bhansali and we feel genuinely sorry for the director for being slapped and his unit of his upcoming historic epic PADMAVATI getting vandalized in India's ‘pink' city called Jaipur, the reason behind this hullabaloo that comes to our mind is sure to make you go speechless.

Picture this..makers like Bhansali/Gowarikar etc, are known for taking cinematic liberties in their reel stories inspired from real life. Till now we don,t know how much liberty Bhansali has taken in his version of PADMAVATI which is said to be a dramatized account of the 1303 siege of the Chittor fort in Rajasthan where Deepika Padukone plays Rani Padmavati, Ranveer Singh plays Alauddin Khilji and Shahid Kapoor plays Rana Rawal Ratan Singh.

Reportedly, PADMAVATI shoot was in process when this ruckus happened, reports were circulating in the media that things regarding PADMAVATI are kept under wraps, nothing is out officially – poster, look nothing.

But gossip aunties where busy speculating all sort of stories regarding Ranveer, Deepika and Shahid and the people concerned were also happy by the attention they are getting in the media that in a way was maintaining the buzz of the movie round the clock. Similarly there are reports saying that there is no romantic sequence between Deepika and Ranveer not even a dream sequence which due to its sensitivity may have irked some section of the society.
 
So have the protesters dreamt what Bhansali is dreaming much before and come to know where the filmmaker has taken liberty and distorted history. Surprisingly the local political outfit is so well informed about Bollywood that they are aware of each and every happening.

Surprisingly, Bhansali was slapped, punched while the lead cast is safe and left untouched. Maybe a local Jabra fan of Deepika, Ranveer or Shahid may have tried to get a fan moment but denied by the unit leading to a ruckus. just imagining.
 
The industry is already under the moral police scanner where in some cases censored films see protest for surreal reasons and face ban but here things have gone beyond imagination. A movie which is still to be made forget about being censored is inviting protest from a local political outfit.
 
Karan Johar, Anurag Kashyap are right in their place in expressing their concern over Bollywood becoming a softer target day by day but what led the protest – the protesters dreamt and saw PADMAVATI in advance. That means a dreamer got beaten by a supposed group of dreamers.

Your knowledge of Bhansali's PADMAVATI is good as ours and the reason behind this smoke which is unable to find its flames is making us speechless over Bollywood being a soft target and the imaginary of such so called moral police. Or was it a stunt by someone to gain publicity.
