In the wake of death threats surrounding Deepika Padukone and Sanjay Leela Bhansali for their upcoming movie, Padmavati, all the Bollywood stars came forward to extend their support. As Padmavati has been facing the heat from political parties and regional communities around the nation, Bollywood stars have decided to extend their support and stand with their colleagues.
Well, one actress who refused to show support for Deepika Padukone in Padmavati row is Kangana Ranaut. It is Shabana Azmi who came in support of Padmavati and urged other stars to support them. Here is what a close source said,
“It was Shabana Azmi who initiated a ‘Deepika Bachao’ campaign in the film industry. She got every major female actor to sign a petition to the Prime Minister asking for Deepika’s safety and protection. The actors who signed included Hema Malini, Jaya Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vidya Balan, Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha and many others who willingly, happily and unconditionally signed the petition.”
