Deepika Padukone has been given special security by the Mumbai Police after Karni Sena threatened to cut her nose by playing the mythical ‘Shupranakha’ on Thursday. Demonstrations across the country intensified for the release of the film “Padmavati”. Sanjay Leela Bhansali, director of the film has agreed to screen the film so that the members of Karni Sena extinguish their fears.
The Rajputs never raise their hand to the women, but if necessary, we will do Deepika what Lakshman Shurpanakha did, “said Mahipal Singh Makrana of Rajput Karni Sena.
Marana’s threat came only hours after Lokendra Singh Kalvi, a senior Rajput leader, demanded a national attack on December 1, when Padmavati should be released.
“We are going to gather in lakhs, our ancestors have written history with blood, we will not let anyone blacken, Bharat will invite bandh on December 1,” said Lokendra Singh Kalvi. “The regression of the country is not, you do it so I beg Deepika not to insult the women.Deepika is seen with fewer clothes in the film How do you try to portray Indian women?” Kalvi had told a TV channel.
Earlier, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath wrote a letter to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. He wrote that the situation of law and order can be affected after the film has been released in the state.
