NEW DELHI:  Padmavati, Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming epic drama film, remains embroiled in controversy ahead of its release. Deepika Padukone, the lead actress, received threats yesterday from Rajput group Karni Sena triggering sharp reactions from several quarters. Ms Padukone has been given special security by Mumbai Police after Karni Sena threatened to chop off her nose. 

Another group from Uttar Pradesh Chatriya Samaj issued open threat and announced a reward of Rs. 5 crore for anyone beheading Mr Bhansali or Ms Padukone. However, several Bollywood actors have come out in support of the movie as the row refuses to die down. The movie is slated for release on December 1.
