Kangna Ranaut has clarified her stance over Deepika Padukone where she was reported not to have signed Shabana Azmi’s petition in the ongoing ‘Padmavati’ controversy.
Ranaut said Padukone had her full support but had issues with Azmi spearheading the ‘Deepika Bachao’ petition, according to Bollywood Hungama.
Ranaut said, “I was filming Manikarnika in Jodhpur when I got a call from dear friend Anushka Sharma to sign the petition written by Ms Shabana Azmi. I explained to her 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’ led by someone who character assassinated me when I was bullied by influential men, 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.”
