the seventh edition of Jaipur Literature Festival had its brush with controversy when members ofRajput community barged into a session featuring producer Ekta Kapoor on Monday.The Rajputs,under the banner of Shree Rajput Karni Sena (SRKS),shouted slogans against TVserialJodha Akbar,produced by Ms.Kapoor's 'Balaji Telefilms'.The organisation accused the serialof distorting historical facts for commericial gains.The organisation had also protested against the serial in June last year.It had decided to file a petition in the Rajasthan High courtto stop the serial from being aired.Ms.Kapoor,who was in conversation with author Siddhart Dhanwant Sanghvi during a session titled "Each other's stories",simply smiled and said such incidents had become a regular episode in her life.
