So, just a reminder that we’re lucky to live in Canada.
There’s a movie coming out in India that is so controversial that a member of India’s Hindu nationalist ruling party has offered $2-million to anyone who beheads the lead actress and the director!
The film is called 'Padmavati,' and it’s rumoured to depict a relationship between a Hindu queen and a Muslim ruler. (That’s it. That’s the big controversy.)
The film’s producers postponed the release of the film, which was set to be in theatres December 1st, and now local media are reporting that it might not be released at all.
Meanwhile, the politician who put the bounty on their heads said the star of the film is one of his "favourite actors" and he’s "not inciting any violence." (Come again?)
