About 40 to 50 people reached the sets of the film armed with stones and lathis. Some of the cars parked around the sets were also damaged.
Certain Rajput outfits have claimed that the film has a dream sequence where Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji will be seen in an intimate position. Bhansali and his production house have dismissed the reports and said no such scene exists.
