A member of India's Hindu nationalist ruling party offered a $1.5 million 
bounty Sunday for anyone who beheads the lead actress and the director of 
a yet-to-be released Bollywood film that's sparked controversy for 
depicting a romance between a Hindu queen and Muslim ruler.

The film "Padmavati" was set to be in theaters on Dec. 1 and has caused a 
firestorm over its alleged handling of the relationship.

Suraj Pal Amu, a Bharatiya Janata Party leader from the northern state of 
Haryana, offered the bounty against actress Deepika Padukone and filmmaker 
Sanjay Leela Bhansali.The film's producers postponed the release of the 
movie the same day.

Speaking at a public rally, Amu also said the film would not be allowed to 
be released at all, local media reported.

The movie "Padmavati" is based on a 16th century Sufi epic poem, 
"Padmavat," a fictional account of a brave and beautiful Rajput queen who 
chose to kill herself rather than be captured by the Muslim sultan of 
Delhi, Allaudin Khilji. Over the centuries, the tale has come to be seen 
as history, even though there is little historical evidence to support it.

Padukone plays the role in the film of Padmini, the legendary queen who 
committed "jauhar," the medieval Rajput practice in which women of royal 
households walked into funeral fires to embrace death over the dishonor of 
being taken captive.

The film has been in trouble since the beginning of the year, with fringe 
groups in the western state of Rajasthan attacking the film's set, 
threatening to burn down theaters that show it and even physically 
attacking Bhansali in January.

Most of the anger at the film appears to stem from allegations that 
Bhansali distorted history by filming a romantic dream sequence between 
the film's main protagonists. Bhansali has denied the allegations.

Earlier this month, the head of the Rajput Karni Sena in Rajasthan said 
Padukone should have her nose cut
