Padmaavat release sparks violent protests across northern India

With just a day to go for the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmaavat, violent protests have erupted across northern states in the country. These protests are largely orchestrated by fringe group Karni Sena who were adamant on a ban on the magnum opus. The film which is based on 13th century battle between Maharaja Ratan Singh of Mewar and Sultan Alauddin Khilji of Delhi has been under attack since its inception.
