Kangana Ranaut refused to sign petition initiated by Shabana Azmi, which is been signed by Alia Bhatt, Anushka Sharma and Priyanka Sharma.
Padmavati film controversy has put all the politicians, Bollywood, even a layman into a doubtful situation. Everyone is aware by now that Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali had received life threatening warnings and, a BJP polician had announced bounty on Deepika Padukone’s head.
Padmavati movie has gone through so much that the film fraternity is coming together to take a stand for their fellow star. Hema Malini to Jaya Bachchan, Alia Bhatt to Anushka Sharma, everyone is been supporting Padmavati, Deepika Padukone and the movie director.
If there is someone who said NO to sign Shabana Azmi’s petition of ‘Deepika Bachao’, it is Kangana Ranaut. Well, she is all her heart supporting Padmavati and the star Deepika Padukone but, not willing to sign the petition. She refused to be a part of ‘Deepika Bachao’, calling it a feminist movement.
Kangana, who is currently shooting for Manikarnika: Queen of Jhansi, said in a statement that why she is not willing to sign the petition. She said, “I was filming Manikarnika in Jodhpur, got a call from my dear friend Anushka Sharma to sign the petition written by Ms Shabana Azmi, I explained to Anushka 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, I am on the fence about many things and being a part of a feminist movement called ‘Deepika bachao’ lead by someone who character assassinated me when I was bullied, seems to be one of them. 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.”
Shabana Azmi took the initiative for the petition, which is addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
