Padmavati Controversy: The BJP’s Anil Jain, a senior leader from Haryana, said that though the ruling party is not in favour of the “Padmavati” release, it does not support the sort of threat issued by Suraj Pal Amu.
Sanjay Leela Bansali’s Padmavati has been the epitomy of controversies since its inception. The BJP and other right-wing groups have been relentlessly dissing on the project and the people involved with it. So much so that a senior minister from BJP Haryana went as far as offering a 10 crore bounty for the heads of Sanjay Leela Bhansali or Deepika Padukone.
This has got Narendra Modi’s party on the backfoot. The inhumane behaviour of Amu has made senior party members furious. Senior BJP leader Anil Jain said that though the ruling party is not in favour of the film being released, it does not support the sort of threat issued by Suraj Pal. Meanwhile, another senior party spokesperson said that the BJP doesn’t stand with the threats made by Amu and that an internal committee has been set up to evaluate the situation and such heinous comments by a party member.
“He will have to explain his shocking offer to pay 10 crores in exchange for the heads of Sanjay Leela Bhansali or Deepika Padukone, the director and lead star of “Padmavati”. Death threats will not be taken lightly by this government,” the senior leader said.
