It’s shameful to see how things are taking a gruesome turn in case of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’. If you were offended with BJP’s Haryana Minister offering a bounty of Rs. 10 crores on Deepika Padukone’s head, we don’t know how you would react to this.
A dead body was found hanging at the main gate of Jaipur’s Nahargarh Fort and that’s not it. It also had a chilling note with a deadly message, “We don’t burn effigies, we kill”.

This is the first time in the history of Bollywood when things have gone so out of hand and have taken a sinister turn. This whole incident makes us question the rapidly plunging levels of tolerance in our country.
As per reports by News 18, police are trying to find the cause of the person’s death. But it is disheartening to see the extent to which people are going just to crush a film that revolves around the story of Queen Padmini.

The body is yet to be identified and the cops were notified about it by the visitors who were shocked to see a corpse hanging from the fort. If you feel that Karni Sena, who has been opposing the release of the film and creating hurdles for it are responsible, then you should know that the organisation has come forward and condemned the macabre incident, making it clear they would never use such means to convey their message.

The president of Karni Sena came forward and spoke to News 18 sharing his view and said, “This is not the way to send a message. If anyone wants to send out a message of such sort, it is imparting a wrong message. Opposition to ‘Padmavati’ is justified, but this is not justified. This could be a suicide. This is not our way of protest. We condemn this”
Let’s hope this unfortunate development has got nothing to do with the movie, because that would simply become a large blot on our nation.

Looking at the way things are unfolding, we wonder if this magnum opus will ever see the light of the day. However, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee just announced that the film won’t be banned in her state and makers are welcome to release it there. Let’s hope more ministers come in support of the film and give it a fair chance to release.
