Protests against “Bajirao Mastani” across various cities have left the film’s lead actor Ranveer Singh disturbed.

“The feeling definitely gets negative because someone is protesting when you never had any such intentions.

Obviously we feel bad because it is a negative issue,” Ranveer said here.

They have claimed that the film’s director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has distorted historical facts, and have pointed out discrepancies with the scenes showing Ranveer setting his hair up or dancing vigorously in public. Their contention is that Peshwa Bajirao I was so involved with his duties in the war that he didn’t have time for all these activities.
