Kangana Ranaut has refused to sign the petition initiated by Shabana Azmi that demands protection for Deepika Padukone from the government. The Bajirao Mastani actor has been receiving death threats lately for her upcoming film Padmavati.
According to Business of Cinema, Kangana has now come forth saying that although she denied signing the petition, she has nothing against Deepika. The Queen actor revealed, “I was filming in Jodhpur when I got a call from a dear friend Anushka Sharma to sign the petition written by Shabana Azmi. I explained to her that Deepika has all my support but I am a bit wary of Shabana’s investment in left wing versus right wing politics.”
Kangana continued, “I have my own set of ideas and opinions about the current situation in our country. I am on the fence about many things and being a part of a feminist movement called ‘Deepika bachao‘ led by someone who character-assassinated me when I was bullied by influential men, seems to be one of them.”
The superstar added that Anushka understood how she felt. “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,” stated Kangana.
Guess it’s clear now that the Tanu Weds Manu actor has no bad blood with Deepika but is instead concerned over Shabana’s involvement. Interestingly enough, Kangana is currently filming for her own historical drama based on Rani Laxmibai, titled Manikarnika.
