    'Padmaavat' row: Surajpal Amu sent to judicial custody till Jan 29

    He was earlier taken into preventive detention for his statements over the film 'Padmaavat'.

    The BJP leader is infamous for offering a Rs 10 crore bounty for beheading actress Deepika Padukone and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali in November 2017 for allegedly distorting historical facts and showing Queen Padmini in the bad light.

    On being called out on his harsh language, the Haryana BJP's chief media coordinator justified, "I am an educated person. I don't normally behave this way". He even accused the channel of misbehaving with him and trying to stop his 'aandolan'.

    According to media reports, Amu hails from Rajput clan based in Gurugram's Sohna town. He has been a member of BJP since his college days in 1984.
