New Delhi:

Going a step ahead, Karani Sena has now threatened 'Padmavati' actress Deepika Padukone saying they will do to her what Lakshman (Brother of Lord Rama in Ramayan) did to Shurpanakha (Sister of Demon Ravana).

In a self-made video, threatening Deepika Padukon, Mahipal Singh Makrana of Rajput Karni Sena said Rajputs never raise hand on Women but if the need be they will do this as well.

In 'Ramayana', Lord Rama's brother had chopped the nose of demon king Ravan's sister Surpanakha wich led to the massive war between demons and Wanaras. 

A section of Rajput community is protesting against the release of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ alleging improper "depiction" of legendary queen Rani Padmavati in the movie.

"Padmavati" stars Deepika Padukone in the titular role while Shahid Kapoor essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh plays Alauddin Khilji.

Earlier in the day, Uttar Pradesh government apprised the Centre that the release of Bollywood film "Padmavati" on December 1 will pose a law and order problem for the state and the “Censor Board should take a decision after taking into account people's views.”

On Wednesday, the Shri Rajput Karni Sena had called for a nationwide bandh on December 1 against the release of ‘Padmavati’.

The founder of the organisation Lokendra Singh Kalvi said that not only the Rajput community or Hindu organisations but even Muslim leaders had come against the film, against which there was resentment across the country.

He demanded that Prime Minister Narendra Modi intervene in the issue saying that the central government had the powers, as per the provisions of the Cinematography Act, to stop the release of a film for three months.

That provision should be invoked in case of Padmavati which is slated to be released on December 1, he said.
