Kangana Ranaut refuses to sign Deepika Bachao letter


Kangana Ranaut wholeheartedly supported Deepika Padukone but refused to sign the ‘Deepika Bachao campaign’ a letter, initiated by veteran actress Shabana Azmi. In the wake of the threats, the veteran actress started the campaign for Deepika’s safety and it was signed by several other female actors. This letter will be reportedly been sent to PM Narendra Modi urging him to take an immediate action.

When the ‘Queen’ actress was asked to sign the letter, Kangana refused to sign it.

The actress said that Deepika Padukone has all her support but she did not sign the petition as it is “lead by someone who character assassinated me when I was bullied.”

A statement released in behalf of the actress says:

"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."

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ is facing the wrath of several Rajput groups protesting against the film for distorting facts and hurting their religious sentiments.
