Bollywood film Padmavati sparks outrage in India

Bollywood movie Padmavati has sparked outrage in India, from protests to death threats.

There have been protests for months across the country since the movie was announced. The set of the film was also vandalised and the producer assaulted.

Most of the critics are part of the dominant Rajput caste group in the western state of Rajasthan – who feel the movie is an attack on their beliefs.
