The movie has been in the eye of a raging storm with the fringe groups claiming that the movie distorts historical facts and portrays Rajput community and Rani Padmini in a bad light.

On Wednesday, Karni Sena went on a rampage against the controversy-ridden movie. Fringe groups took to the streets to protest against the release of the movie.

In Haryana, stooping to a new low, protesters pelted stones and torched a bus at Gurugram's Sohna Road. The rioters didn't even spare school children, as a school bus was attacked. No one was hurt in the incident.

The Sanjay Leela Bhansali magnum opus, which is releasing on Thursday, has been embroiled into controversy since its inception. While various Hindu and Rajput fringe outfits have raised objections over the epic drama, the Supreme Court has given a green signal to the film.

The top court had set aside the notification passed by the states of Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Gujarat to ban the release of the movie.

Meanwhile, various fringe groups including Rajput Karni Sena has gone on a rampage and is creating ruckus all over India demanding a ban on the film.
