Some days ago, we told you that members of the Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene threatened to commit mass suicide because of Sunny Leone. The gorgeous actress was scheduled to perform at an event on New Year’s Eve in Bangalore, but in the words of this Sene’s chairman, her “short clothes” and “not good past” made him and his merry bunch of protesters angry enough to threaten suicide.
Since the police of Bangalore have publicly said that they will not be able to ensure mine & all who attend safety for my New Years event,my team & I feel,safety of the people should always come first therefore I cannot attend.God bless & I wish everyone a safe & happy New Year!

Organisations like these are usually termed ‘fringe elements’ by politicians and the media, but with the recent bans and threats over the release of Padmavati and this backlash over Sunny Leone’s dance performance just shows how mainstream these things are becoming.
It’s a scary state of affairs and Bollywood will continue to remain a soft target in such scenarios.
