Rs 10 Crore For Heads Of Deepika Padukone, Padmavati Director: BJP Official

Padmavati row: BJP media coordinator Suraj Pal Amu issued an open threat to the cast and crew.

New Delhi:  The vitriol over the Bollywood film Padmavati went up a notch today as a BJP office-bearer from Haryana said he would double the bounty on the heads of actor Deepika Padukone and the film’s director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, to Rs 10 crore.

Suraj Pal Amu, the party’s Chief Media Coordinator, also expressed his support for Rajput Karni Sena’s threat of chopping off Ms Padukone’s nose.

“I want to congratulate the young man from Meerut for announcing Rs 5 crore bounty for beheading Deepika, Bhansali. We will reward the ones beheading them with Rs 10 crore, and also take care of their family’s needs,” he said.

The film, based on the legend of Padmini, the 13th century Queen of Chittor, has run into trouble since shooting started.

Alleging the film introduced a romantic angle between Padmini and Alauddin Khilji, the Delhi Sultan obsessed with her, politically influential Rajput groups have been on the warpath. Chief Ministers of Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat’s ruling BJP have said the release should be deferred.
