Amidst ‘Padmavati’ storm, Ranveer takes Deepika Padukone for dinner


Amidst threats of behead and nose cut, Deepika Padukone was spotted on a late night date with rumoured beau and co-star Ranveer Singh. The controversies surrounding ‘Padmavati’ is burning in full flame but Deepika and Ranveer are least bothered and enjoying their life the fullest.

The couple was spotted outside Taj, Colaba post late night dinner. Ranveer was behind the wheels and Deepika clicked seating next to him. Both were dressed casually.

Lately, Ranveer Singh was seen singing "Ek ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga...," the famous track from the film 1942 A Love Story for his ladylove and the actor told Deepika in the video, "The way you have lightened up the life of your million fans, you lightened up my life. I will pray to God that the shine and light stay in your life forever. There is nobody like you, god bless you. Love you a lot." Deepika can’t stop blushing.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ is facing the wrath of few communal groups. The release of the periodic drama has been postponed. It was earlier scheduled to hit the screens on December 1st but the film did not get the CBFC certification as Bhansali has violated few rules. The maker has placed the film for certification to CBFC again.

‘Padamvati’ stirred nation-wide outrage. Protestors slammed Bhansali and Deepika and warned that they would set the theatres on fire if the film was screened.

5 crore reward was announced by a rebel group to anyone who would behead Deepika and another revolutionary group threatened to chop Deepika’s nose.

When Deepika Padukone was asked what is her reaction to detractors demanding her head or wanting her nose to be chopped, the actress replied, “Well, at this point, as a woman, an artiste and a citizen of this country I feel angry, I feel let down and I also find it amusing.”

When asked if she felt scared, Deepika said, “I will never feel scared. Fear is not an emotion I have ever identified with.”

Deepika Padukone feels the story of Rani Padmavati is beautiful and the story needs to be told to the world, “Yes, people are allowed to express themselves without having even seen the film. And having worked in the film, I can assure you it’s one film every Indian will be proud of. I’m glad we are showcasing Padmaviti’s journey. Her story needs to be told not just to people in this country but across the world,” Deepika quips.
