Queen's 'Honour' and All That : Deepika's Head is Good Where It Is

People are talking about how rewards are being bandied about for maiming and even beheading Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Several organizations and people have announced figures ranging from Rs 1 crore to Rs 10 crore. People are saying that that is a lot of money when contract killings are being done for Rs 50 lakh or less. People are also saying why the government is not taking any action against these people who are enticing others to commit a crime.

People are also surprised that the Karni Sena, ostensibly the protector of Rajput heritage, has to declare an award to protect the ‘honour’ of a historical queen. People ask why no Rajput is man enough to do the job himself. Like in the bygone era, the Karni Sena chief should select a Rajput yoddha and assign him the task of maiming Deepika and beheading Bhansali, people are suggesting.

People are saying that the government is letting things go out of hand. If not controlled now, artistic freedom will go for a toss and instead of getting a film certified by the CBFC, the producers and directors will first have to get their screenplays vetted by assorted miscreant groups. People are saying that this is blackmail of the worst kind. People also feel that there might be the desire to fleece producers. Raj Thackeray had got Rs 5 cr from the makers of Ai Dil Hai Mushkil, although the money was donated to charity. But it was plain, simple ransom by another name.

People are saying that how can others say that a film distorts history when it is a dramatized version and not a documentary? People are asking who told Karni Sena that Bhansali has made Padmavati as a true depiction of the queen’s life. And people are finally asking that how is the Karni Sena and others are raising so many questions without seeing the film? People conclude by saying that since the CBFC is there, it should take the final call.
