    Padmaavat: Fringe Outfit Announces Bounty On Deepika Padukone’s Nose

    Earlier, a Meerut resident from the Kshatriya community had announced a bounty of Rs 5 crore on the heads of film director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actor Deepika Padukone for allegedly "wrongfully portraying" queen Padmini in the film Padmavati.

    Earlier in the day today, Kanpur Kshatriya Mahasabha activists staged a dharna at Shikshak Park here seeking a ban on the movie and warned the district administration and police to be ready to face massive protests across the city if the controversial film "which has twisted the facts" was allowed to be screened in the city.

    They also threatened theatre owners that their property would be vandalised.
    As news about the protest at Shikshak Park reached senior officials, a heavy police contingent rushed there to ensure that law and order was not disturbed.

    To prevent any untoward incident, security has been beefed up in and around all the malls and cinema halls, Senior Superintendent of Police, Akhilesh Kumar said. PTI
