Petrol bomb thrown outside cinema hall; showing Padmavat
The opposition to the film Padmavat turned ugly as unidentified bike-borne miscreants hurled a petrol bomb at a cinema theatre in Belagavi of Karnataka.
It need be mentioned, however, no one was injured in the incident.
Police said that the petrol bomb was hurled late on Friday night and that it exploded in a huge fireball outside Prakash theatre.
The audience understandably were in panic post this incident.
It need be mentioned that Karnataka is due to poll later this year.
The controversial film has been opposed by various Rajput groups who claim that the period drama distorts history and hurts the sentiments of their community.
