Since Padmavati is mired in controversies many religious groups are making threats to Deepika Padukone and Director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for distorting the facts in the movie. A BJP leader from Haryana offered Rs 10 crore to those who behead Deepika and filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
After a string of these threats, the Karnataka Government stepped up security cover to her family in Bengaluru.
Her family, including her father and badminton champion Prakash Padukone, mother Ujjala, younger sister Anisha and grandmother Ahilya live in the northern suburb.
Her father runs a badminton coaching academy in the city.
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah also took to social media to support the Bengaluru-born actor.
He tweeted, "I condemn the culture of intolerance & hate perpetuated by @BJP4India .Karnataka stands with @deepikapadukone .She is a globally renowned artist from our state. I call upon the CM of Haryana @mlkhattar to take strict action against those holding out threats against her."
