Mumbai Police increase Deepika Padukone's security after Shri Rajput Karni Sena threat

The controversy and protests surrounding Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Padmavati is intensifying with each passing day.

"What we have learnt is that there is lots of distortion of historical facts".

In New Delhi, Congress spokesperson R P N Singh said though he had not seen the film, it was up to the censor board to clear the movie. They should be apprised about it. The Karni Sena activist said that when a movie like "Bahubali" can earn crores showing the valour of "kshatriyas", then why people want to cash-in on films presenting wrong facts.

Mumbai: Following threats from a fringe group in Rajasthan to chop off Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone's nose if the controversial film Padmavati, which is allegedly based on the legend of Rani Padmini of Chittor is aired on December 1, the Mumbai police has provided special security at the residence and office of producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actor Deepika Padukone. BJP leaders in Uttar Pradesh have also opposed the film; one MP and two MLAs from the state have written to chief minister Adityanath asking him to ban the film's release in Aligarh, Indian Express reported. They had threatened to indulge in vandalism and arson if the film was screened, the State government said.

The government has submitted that its resources to maintain law and order are stretched due to the ongoing municipal elections and the Barawafat festival, on December 2, when Muslim groups actively participate in taking out processions.
