Amid protest’s taking place at various cities across India against the movie Padmavati, Deepika Padukone has been in the fray for playing the queen revered by Rajputs. However, she has several times said that Padmavati is a film India would be proud of.
Despite Karni Sena and many other organisations, painted with the same brush, claimed they won’t let the film release on December 1, the actor said that she believes nothing can stop the release of the Sanjay Leela Bhansali magnum opus.
Oblivious to the hate campaign, Deepika has said in recent interviews that she has full faith in the film. Talking to Mumbai Mirror, the actor – when asked what is her reaction to detractors demanding her head or wanting to cut off her nose – 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.”
