'Padmavati' threats escalate as body found hanging

'Padmavati' threats escalate as body found hanging

Earlier in the day, Saini's brother's body was found hanging on the ramparts of Jaipur's Nahargarh Fort with a threat note engraved on the rocks in protest of the movie "Padmavati". "'Padmavati" has been facing a series of protests from pro-Hindutuva and members of royal family particularly in Rajasthan.

The Rajasthan government had recently banned the release of Padmavati after widespread protests erupted against the movie. In the pictures, the note can be seen written on the stone with charcoal. Another graffiti read, "Padmavati ka virodh" (protest against Padmavati).

The police said said it was not clear if it was a case of murder or suicide.

Speaking to CNN-News18, Rajput Karni Sena President Mahipal Singh Makrana - the man who had threatened to chop off Deepika Padukone's nose - said: "This could be a suicide".

"We don't just hang effigies". This one message made all believe that it was done by the anti-Padmavati brigade.

In related news, the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has cleared Padmavati for screening in cinemas in United Kingdom with a 12A rating. "It is not acceptable", an activist of the Karni Sena said.

Chetan Raghav was the tantrik who was thrown out of the Chittor court and who first mentioned the beauty of Padmini (Padmavati) to Khilji.

The group, Rashtriya Chetna Manch, had burnt the Padmavai's director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's effigy earlier.

Along with Deepika Padukone playing the title role of Rani Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor is playing Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh playing that of Sultan Alauddin Khilji.
