Body found hanging with slogan against Padmavati: Alia Bhatt blames government inaction over recent events

Mumbai, Nov 24 (IBNS): As a body was found hanging with slogans against Padmavati movie, actress Alia Bhatt on Friday blamed  government's inaction over threats given to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Deepika Padukone for the incident.

Alia said she was shocked to hear about finding a body with slogans against the movie found at the Nahargarh Fort  on Friday.

Alia tweeted:"This is what happens when violent threats are allowed to made openly without punishment! What is happening? Shocked!"

The Delhi High Court on Friday dismissed a petition that sought setting up of a panel before ,the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film Peadmavati to ensure that history is not distorted in the period piece featuring Deepika Padukone in the title role.

According to media reports, the HC said that the PIL against the release of  the movie is misconceived and such pleas are encouraging people who are agitating against it.

According to the petition, Padmavati should first be screened in front of three prominent historians from top universities and a retired High Court judge, apart from the Censor Board.

The movie was to have  released on December 1, but was postponed amid a bitter feud kicked up by different Rajput organisations, alleging that it has distorted history and has hurt the sentiment of the community by way of its presentation.

Meanwhile, a Jaipur report said that the body of a man was found hanging at the Nahargarh Fort  on Friday.

While probing, the police also found a threat note on the rocks at the fort, which seem to suggested that the death was linked to the row over  Padmavati.

“We don’t just hang effigies. Padmavati”, said the message in Hindi,

However, the police is yet to know whether the death was an act of murder or suicide.

The deceased has been identified as  Chetan Saini, a 40-year-old local man.
