A fringe group on Thursday declared a reward of Rs 51 lakh for beheading Padmaavat director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, whose period drama is mired in a major controversy.

“Any person bringing the head of Sanjay Leela Bhansali would be paid Rs 51 lakh in immediately,” Diwakar Singh, vice president, All India Brajmandal Kshatriya Rajput Mahasabha, while talking to reporters here today.

BJP leader Suraj Pal Amu earlier offered a bounty to anyone who would cut off Deepika Padukone’s nose.

We shall teach a lesson to politicians who are silent on the issue and are not supporting the agitation, he added.

Asked about the attack on a school bus in Gurgaon, he alleged that it was the handiwork of the film industry to scuttle the agitation.

A Rajput would never attack the unarmed, ladies or children, he said.
