Padmavati Controversy: Amid protests going on over Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial and Deepika Padukone starrer Padmavati, a body of a man was found at the Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur today. During the probe, the police also found a threat note on the rocks at the fort. While the identity of the youth has been established, the reason behind his death is still not known, the official statement by the police is still to be released. The body found hanging at Nahargarh Fort in Jaipur is revealed to be of 40-year-old local Chetan Saini. Meanwhile, the Delhi high court today dismissed a petition that sought the setting up of a panel prior to the release of film ‘Padmavati’ to ensure there is no ‘distortion’ of history. The HC while talking about the same said that the PIL against the release of “Padmavati” is hopeless and 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.
