The huge controversy about Deepika Padukone’s upcoming film, Padmavati is not unknown to citizens of India. Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, this film is a period drama based on the life of Rani Padmavati. However, a lot of communities have started a protest against this film, claiming Hindu traditions have been hurt because of the way Bhansali portrayed Padmavati.
A lot of ministers have also pleaded to ban Padmavati in their respective states as a contribution to this so called protest. This protest is gone so much out of hand that Kunwar Surajpal Singh Ammu, a ruling BJP leader in Haryana actually offered a huge amount of Rs 10 crore for anybody who can burn the actress alive! That is how ridiculous this entire situation is getting.
A lot of actors from different industries have stood up against these protests and extended their support to the entire team of Padmavati. One such actor is Kamal Haasan who went on to state, he respects the freedom of the actress. Kamal Haasan actually urged cerebral India to wake up because people have said enough! The veteran actor demanded Deepika’s safety and claimed, she has all the freedom to do what she wants and nobody can take it away from her.
Not just Deepika, even actors like Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh are receiving threats from these so called activists. Director Sanjay was already attacked and it looks like these citizens are currently not in the mood to calm down. In Padmavati, Ranveer essays the role of Alauddin Khilji, the Delhi Sultan obsessed with legendary 13th century queen of Chittor Rani Padmavati essayed by Deepika.
Wishing Deepika as well as the entire team of Padmavati all the very best for their upcoming film!
