Actor Farhan Akhtar on Thursday lashed out at Padmaavat protesters after a school bus carrying a number of children was attacked in Gurugram on Wednesday by the mob.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film has been facing protests by the Karni Sena and other fringe groups over allegations that historical facts were distorted in the movie, based on the 16th-century poem Padmavat by Malik Muhammad Jayasi.

However, the attack on the school bus has irked several people, including Farhan, who on Thursday morning took to Twitter to call out the protesters.

"Attacking a school bus is not an agitation. It is terrorism. The people who did it are terrorists," he tweeted.

The film stars Deepika Padukone as Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khilji. The Supreme Court had paved the way for its nationwide release after some states issued notifications banning the film.
