Priyanka, Alia, Sonam, Anushka, Karan Condemn The Attack On Sanjay Leela Bhansali
The attack on one of the finest directors of Bollywood - Sanjay Leela Bhansali shocked the entire nation last evening. The National Award winning director, who has given some marvellous films like Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Goliyon Ki Rasleela - Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Black to the film industry, was suddenly attacked by a violent mob, screaming slogans of “Karni Sena”, while he was shooting Padmavati in Jaipur.

The Padmavati crew had erected a huge set at Jaigarh Fort, Jaipur, where a number of important scenes of the film were to be shot. The stage was set and the cameras were ready to roll. However, the moment Karni Sena activists got a whiff of the matter, they landed on the set and began damaging it. Reason? Distortion of historical facts, they say. While his team tried to protect SLB, a blow landed straight on the cowering, unarmed, filmmaker.

A shocked and angry Bollywood immediately took to social media to express their angst against this hooliganism. Actors, directors, singers and the entire film fraternity stood together in support of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, condemning the attack.

Karan Johar who was shocked about the entire incident, shared a series of tweets.

Alia Bhatt and Priyanka Chopra also took to Twitter to express their anger. They ridiculed the entire incident.

Sonam Kapoor and Anushka Sharma also tweeted about the horrible incident and expressed their displeasure:

Other Bollywood celebs like Sushant Singh Rajput, Yami Gautam, Kriti Sanon, Arjun Rampal, Manoj Bajpayee, Abhishek Kapoor, Nimrat Kaur among others also shared their disgust on the ghastly incident:

That's what the industry thinks about this shameful incident, which could have happened to anyone. Democracy gives you the right to express which includes protest. But surely democracy does not give you the right to hit and inflict injury to someone. As Karan Johar rightly said, "This cannot be our future."
