In a bizarre incident, a dead body was found hung this morning at Jaipur’s most famous Nahargarh fort. Beside the dead body, a message was engraved on a stone wall that read “Padmavati ka virodh”. Along with which, the graffiti also included, “we don’t burn effigies, we hang them”. Though the police have not yet identified whether it is a case of suicide or murder, the incident has definitely shaken the onlookers.
The 190-crore film, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been the talk of the town for quite some time now. The movie, which was earlier the most awaited film of the year is now being subjected to delay again and again due to the angry protests being held in Rajasthan against the movie. The reason behind the protests is due to the assumption of some fringe groups like Karni Sena who believe that the film “distorts history” even though they haven’t seen the film and all the people associated to the film have denied all relevance.
Rajput leader Giriraj Singh Lotwara said, “This is a matter of probe. Padmavati is a burning issue and anything can be linked to it. No organisation can go to such an extent of threats or encourage such things.”
Earlier, the lead participants of the protest even threatened Bhansali and lead actress Deepika Padukone with their lives and now such an incident is definitely giving a reason to worry!
