Padmavati release row : Death threat to film-maker Bhansali & actor Deepika Padukone
With each passing day the controversy over the upcoming Bollywood film, Padmavati, is getting dirtier. The protest over the Bollywood big-budget drama, which is fast spreading across the country, has been triggered by allegations that the makers of Padmavati have wrongly portrayed queen Padmini in the film and thus the movie hurt the sentiments of Hindus and Rajput community in particular. On Thursday, Meerut's Thakur Abhishek Som of Sardhana Chaubisi, who claimed affiliation to the Samajwadi Party (SP), said that his community, Kshatriya, will not tolerate wrongful portrayal of the queen and meddling with its rich heritage. Claiming that his political affiliations had nothing to do with his stand, Som warned that even Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not be able to save the Bollywood filmmaker and the actor. Demanding a ban on the movie, Som told the media that it would be better if Deepika left the country or else her head will be chopped off.
