Will demand for an investigation into the death. He has nothing to do with it (threat note written on rocks #Padmavati ),” said Ram Ratan Saini, brother of the deceased. Chetan, a resident of Jaipur’s Shastri Nagar, was found hanging on the ramparts of the fort with threat messages. One message read ‘Padmavati ka Virodh’ and other one said ‘we don’t burn effigies, we hang people’. Another message saying ‘Chetan Tantrik mara gaya’ was also written near the body. Each messages were linked to the most controversial Padmavati row.The incident came to light when morning walkers saw the body hanging some 500 feet above the ground and informed the police. It was presumed that the man had committed suicide, but on checking the spot and seeing the messages the police are suspecting some foul play.Police are investigating whether it’s a suicide or a murder.Fringe groups like Rajput Karni Sena (RKS), who have been demanding nationwide ban on Padmavati’s release, have denied any involvement in the matter. They have earlier threatened violent protests, to cut off actor Deepika Padukone’s nose and burned effigies of director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.The Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s opus magnum has been in the centre of storm over it’s release as protestors claim the movie has ‘distorted’ historical facts.The film tells the story of Rajput queen Rani Padmini who burned herself to avoid being captured by the Muslim emperor Alauddin Khilji. Amid rumours of the romantic dream sequence between the legendary Rajput queen and Khilji, several political leaders and outfits have protested against the film’s release. Some states like Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat has already banned the screening of the film in the state.Other states like Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh have urged the filmmakers to make the necessary changes in the film to avoid any historical facts being distorted and not show any objectionable content.The film was slated for release on December 1. But, it was confirmed that Bhansali’s period drama has been delayed. The film was submitted to the CBFC for certification but it was returned to the makers because of ‘incomplete application’.The production house, Viacom18 motion pictures, sent out an official release on Sunday confirming the delay in the release of Padmavati.
