The Padmavati controversy has gone over board in more ways than one. What with the CBFC not approving the movie and different groups of the Rajput community coming together to protest AND with a bounty of Rs. 5 crores on Deepika Padukone’s and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s head, it should come as no surprise that the entire Bollywood community came together to support their favourite star and director.
Amidst all this, we heard that Shabana Azmi was planning to raise the matter with the powers that be in Delhi by signing a petition consisting of signatures from leading Bollywood actresses including Kangana Ranaut to ask for Deepika’s safety. With the entire Bollywood world signing up to be a part of this, it should come as no surprise that Kangana plans on sitting out of this mass support.
Rumour is, Anushka Sharma called Kangana to ask her to sign the petition. Kangana refused to sign this petition by saying, “I explained to her that Deepika Padukone has all my support but I am a bit wary of Shabana Azmi’s investment in left wing Vs right wing politics. I have my own set of ideas and opinions about the current situation in our country.”
“Anushka understood but I am glad they reached out to me, like I said Deepika has all my support I am an individual perfectly capable of supporting who I like without anyone’s support,” Kangana further added.
The rumour mill is also saying Kangana was extremely miffed with Deepika for not taking her side on the Hrithik controversy. Well, clearly our stars have a lot going on both on screen and off screen. Interesting Tuesday? Definitely!
