The news agency ANI reported that Surajpal Amu, a state-level media coordinator of the BJP, told a rally Sunday: “We will reward the ones beheading [Padukone and Bhansali] with Rs 10 crore, and also take care of their family's needs.” A crore signifies 10 million rupees. Video from the rally also showed Amu saying: “There's no need to discuss making cuts to the film.
