Gorakhpur, Nov 21: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityath on Tuesday said those who have threatened “Padmavati” director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Deepika Padukone are wrong. Adityath said the Uttar Pradesh government had already presented its views to the censor board and central government.

“Those who have threatened to behead Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali are wrong,” Adityath said here.

A BJP leader had announced a reward of Rs 10 crore for anyone who beheads Bhansali and Padukone. He was booked on Tuesday. Adityath also said that Bhansali should respect the sentiments of people protesting against the film.

“Bhansali has no right to play with the emotions of people. If people are protesting, he should respect their sentiments,” he said.

“Padmavati” was scheduled to hit the theatres on December 1 but it has been mired in controversy over conjectures that it distorts history about Rajput queen Padmavati. Its release has been deferred and a new date is to yet to be announced. (IANS)
