Rajasthan minister Rajendra Singh Rathore on 9 November weighed in on the ongoing controversy about Bollywood movie 'Padmavati' and said historical facts must not be toyed with as it can hurt people's sentiments.

"Historical facts must not be toyed with as it can hurt people's sentiments. He (Sanjay Leela Bhansali) should have abided by the decision taken by social activists and film directors a long time ago," the minister said.
