Ekta Kapoor faces protest at Jaipur Literature Festival
Producer Ekta Kapoor faced protest from Rajput Karni Sena at Jaipur Literature Festival on Monday.

Movie and television producer Ekta Kapoor's session at the Jaipur Literature Festival was interrupted Monday when members of Rajput Karni Sena started shouting slogans against her for distorting facts and showing Rajputs in bad light in her TV show "Jodha Akbar".

As soon as her session "Each Other Stories" started, around 10-12 protesters barged in and started shouting "Ekta wapis jao (Go back, Ekta)".

This lasted for a minute and during that period the 38-year-old looked unperturbed and told the audience: "This will turn into a 'Jodha Akbar' discussion if I don't continue. It is nothing but background music for me."

According to an official release, police made a swift move and the protesters were moved away from the venue allowing Ekta Kapoor to resume the session.

"The festival believes in freedom of expression and supports respectful and responsible debate between all participants and guests," said the festival director Sanjoy Roy.

"We thank the Jaipur police for their swift action in maintaining safety at all times, and allowing the event to resume within a minute," he added.

"Jodha Akbar", which went on air on Zee TV last June, has been courting controversies ever since it started.
