Members of Bajrang Dal stalled the shoot of Ali Fazal and Judi Dench-starrer after a statue of Queen Victoria was put up and Fazal’s character kissed the statue’s feet. The statue of Queen Victoria covered up by the crew to stop the protesters from vandalizing it.
Bunty Thakur, city convenor, Bajrang Dal, Agra, said, “On October 2, we wanted to take a portrait of Mahatma Gandhi inside Mehtab Bagh, but the ASI didn’t allow us. Now, the film’s team has put a huge statue of Queen Victoria inside the Bagh without permission. We will continue protesting till the statue is removed.”
