Kangana says ‘No’ to ‘Deepika Bachao’ campaign
After veteran actor Shabana Azmi initiated a campaign requesting to provide security to “Padmavati” actor Deepika Padukone, fellow actor Kangana Ranaut has allegedly refused to take part in the “Deepika Bachao” campaign. Amidst the several death threats and warnings of physical harm received from enraged Rajput community in India and abroad, the campaign sought the actor’s safety from Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. So far, Bollywood stars such as Hema Malini, Jaya Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vidya Balan, Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha and many others have signed the petition. In regards to Ranaut not signing the petition, a well informed source said: “What came as a clincher was the complete silence of the industry including Deepika when Kangana battled Hrithik Roshan. Kangana probably feels no need to extend her support to anyone since no one supported her. And she is not all wrong.” The backlash ensued after several Rajput groups claimed that director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film, “Padmavati,” has allegedly distorted the depiction of the titular character. They alleged that the film portrays an “amorous relationship” between Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji, played by Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, respectively, which disrespects the sentiments of the community. Although Bhansali and his team have dismissed the claims on several occasions, the demonstration took a violent turn. The backlash had turned so impeding that Padukone even had a bounty on her head. Meanwhile, the actors’ hostility dates back to 2014, when Padukone had dedicated her award for the film “Happy New Year” to Ranaut’s performance in “Queen.” Ranaut, offended, said she would have preferred if Padukone had not addressed her reaction to her (Ranaut) performance in public. Things deteriorated between the two when, during an interview, Ranaut confessed that the actors were not friends.
