Here’s what they tweeted:-

Sonakshi Sinha have said death threats being issued to fellow actor Deepika Padukone and 'Padmavati' director Sanjay Leela Bhansali is "not right".

The actor called for strict actions against the people calling for violating rules.

"It is a clear indication of our level of evolution. We are still evolving as a society and as individuals. It is a reflection of the fact that we still have a long way to go to evolve into beings, that bereft of these problems and issues of assumptions and attacks. It is not right," Hrithik Roshan said.

While Varun said India in a democracy every one has the right to protest, but things should not turn violent.

"Protesting peacefully is fine. It is a democracy and everyone should be allowed to voice their opinion and we should totally respect that.

"But making a (death) threat should not be allowed in a democracy. And I believe in our judiciary, I am sure they will manage it," he said.

Sonakshi said that the kind of protest film and the cast members are facing is not at all corect "... Whatever is happening is not right and it shouldn't happen. In our country, if threats are given openly, it is not a correct thing. I think strict action should be taken against it."
