Here Is Why Kangana Ranaut Refused To Sign ‘Deepika Bachao’ Campaign

Updated on 5 December, 2017 at 1:59 pm By

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’ has been mired in controversies ever since the crew started shooting for the film. The movie’s director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Deepika Padukone have received death threats from political and fringe groups, who want the movie to be banned alleging that it has distorted historical facts and has showed Rajput queen Rani Padmini in a bad light. Protesters have strongly opposed the rumoured romantic dream sequence between Rani Padmavati (Deepika Padukone) and Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer Singh). Suraj Pal Amu, chief media coordinator for the BJP in Haryana, has even announced an award of Rs 10 crore to the ones who behead them.

As a result of numerous death threats, many Bollywood celebs have come out in support of the film and have asked the government to provide protection to Deepika.

Recently, veteran actor Shabana Azmi initiated the “Deepika Bachao” campaign and requested leading ladies from the industry to sign the petition, however Kangana Ranaut refused to extend any support to Deepika.

Kangana’s gesture left Shabana in shock and annoyance.

Celebs likes Hema Malini, Jaya Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, and Priyanka Chopra, have signed the petition which Shabana wants to give to PM Modi asking for Deepika’s safety and protection.



One of the possible reasons for Kangana refusing to sign the petition could be because of the hostility between the two actresses in 2014 when Deepika dedicated her award for Happy New Year to Kangana’s performance in Queen. To this, Kangana said that she’d have preferred if Deepika had personally appreciated her performance rather than speak about it in public.

The hostility between the two worsened when during an interview with Rajeev Masand, Kangana confessed that Deepika and she are not friends.

Meanwhile, due to continuous protests and with several state governments banning it, trade experts have ruled out an early resolution of the controversy surrounding the movie.
