A complaint was filed against the miscreants who had set Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Padmavati’s location set in Kolhapur on fire, said Shobha Sant, the film’s producer. The costumes and jewellery meant for the actors in the film were looted, but no one was hurt, she said.

“Thank you everyone for the support...We are all ok,” Sant tweeted. Sant, the chief executive officer at Bhansali Productions, also thanked the Maharashtra police for their action on the incident of vandalism.

Film’s costume designers Rimple and Harpreet Narula called the incident “unfortunate” and said they were left heart-broken after such incidents. “Something so unfortunate has happened because of illiteracy in our country,” Rimple told PTI. Rimple added, “We are broken sentimentally.”

On Tuesday night, around 40 to 50 people armed with sticks and stones attacked the set in Kolhapur and damaged cars parked around the location near Panhala Fort. The attackers lit petrol bombs at the set and shooting was called off indefinitely. No arrests have been made yet in connection with the incident.

The attack comes months after Bhansali was assaulted on Padmavati’s set in Jaipur, Rajasthan, after which the shoot was shifted to Maharashtra. Members of a fringe Rajput group, the Karni Sena, had opposed a love scene between Rani Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji in the movie, which Bhansali said was not even in the film. The characters are played by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The film also stars Shahid Kapoor.
