The protesters have blamed the ace filmmaker for distorting historical facts related to Bajirao Peshwa
In two days, Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra's Bajirao Mastani will hit the screens.
While fans are excited about the clash between Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale, the controversies surrounding Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus are showing know signs of subsiding. After songs Pinga and Malhari faced the wrath of social activists and historians around Maharashtra, it is reported that effigies of Sanjay Leela Bhansali were burnt at the Shanivarwada in Pune.
Protesters led by descendants of Bajirao Peshwa and Chhatrasal dynasty, went on to burn SLB's effigy at the Peshwa capital of Shanivarwada, to mark their protest against the film. According to the protesters, the film Bajirao Mastani has distorted historical facts and have made mockery of details about Bajirao's life. Earlier this month, the descendants of Peshwa dynasty came to Mumbai and held a press conference to bash Ranveer-Deepika-Priyanka starrer for incorrect interpretation of historical facts.
The protesters from the land of Peshwas claimed that Bajirao Mastani hurts their sentiments and should not be allowed to release. But, SLB and his star cast seem nonchalant about the controversy and are eagerly waiting for the judgement day ( December 18) to arrive.
