'Padmavati' protests turn deadlier; body found hanging at Jaipur fort

“We don’t just hang effigies. Padmavati,” says a message written on a rock nearby

The incident of a body being found hanging on top of the Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur on Friday in connection with the protests against Padmavati shocked all. The nature of death, whether suicide or murder is yet to be decided by the police as well. Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha shared the picture of the accident and shared a powerful message.

Earlier scheduled to get there in cinema halls on December 1, the release date of the film has now been deferred by the makers till further notice. The words "Padmavati ka virodh (Protest against Padmavati)" were also found at the same place.

Meanwhile, Rajput Karni Sena, which is protesting against the release of Deepika Padukone starer Padmavati said that it has nothing to do with the case.

The man has been identified as Chetan Kumar, a 23-year-old from Jaipur, who was identified after the cops found his Aadhaar card.

"We don't burn effigies, we hang", the note reads.

The Chiefs can surely use held in the secondary, which hasn't performed at a high clip in the absence of safety Eric Berry . The Chiefs will line up Revis opposite of Marcus Peters - presumably - in the hopes to strengthen their pass defense.

Interestingly, each message mentioned Padmavati.

Padmini, according to legend, was a Rajput warrior queen from Chittor in Rajasthan who set herself on fire to save her honour after Khilji defeated her husband in battle. But protests have continued and some states, including Rajasthan and the central state of Madhya Pradesh, have said they won't allow the film's screening in theatres.

The group, Rashtriya Chetna Manch, had burnt the Padmavai's director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's effigy earlier.

Padmavati stars Deepika Padukone in the titular role of Rani Padmini, Shahid Kapoor as her husband Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Muslim ruler Alauddin Khilji.
