Karni Sena Threatens To Chop Off Deepika Padukone’s Nose

Karni Sena Threatens To Chop Off Deepika Padukone’s Nose

We can’t remember the last time a film running into so much trouble even before its release. While we can’t wait for the magnum opus Padmavati to release, the film has been running into more and more trouble as the date of release approaches. The film has been facing constant opposition in the form of violence and threats from members of Rajput Karni Sena, right from when they disrupted the shoot of the film in Jaipur earlier this year, and now the protests have only intensified. Again, few days back, they called for a nationwide bandh on the date of the release.

Now, Rajput Karni Sena member Mahipal Singh Makrana issued a fresh threat today in a self-made video. He said, “Rajputs never raise a hand on women but if need be, we will do to Deepika what Lakshman did to Shurpanakha.” On the other hand, Lokendra Singh Kalvi, Rajput Karni Sena chief said they will call for a bandh on December 1, 2017, the film’s release date. He said, “We will gather in lakhs, our ancestors wrote history with blood we will not let anyone blacken it; we will call for Bharat bandh on December 1.” Check out the video here:

In light of this video, Mumbai Police on Thursday beefed up the security of actor Deepika Padukone. They have already provided protection to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali after the Rajput community outfit protested outside his office in suburban Juhu last Saturday while accusing him of distorting facts in the historical drama.

On the other hand, a lawyer filed a petition in the Supreme Cort against Padmavati, over objectionable scenes, a plea the court has said it will consider.

We are really not sure what is going on here. Why can’t we simply watch a film for a film, instead of making premature judgements, without even having viewed it!
