Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut continues, or so does it seem. Why do we
say so? It so happened that Shabana Azmi decided to come up with a petition
called, Deepika Bachao, in the wake of all the controversies surrounding
Deepika Padukone’s film – Padmavati.
Shabana Azmi got every top female actor to sign a petition to the Prime Minister asking for Deepika’s safety and protection. The actresses who signed included Hema Malini, Jaya Bachchan, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Vidya Balan, Anushka Sharma, Priyanka Chopra, Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha and many others who willingly, happily and unconditionally signed the petition.
However, buzz is that when it came to Kangana Ranaut, she flatly refused to sign
the petition leaving Azmi in shock.
According to reports, Kangana feels that no one came in her support during the
Hrithik Roshan controversy. So, she doesn’t feel the need to extend her support
in the industry let alone the fact that Deepika and she share cold vibes.
The actresses’ rivalry can be traced back to 2014 when Deepika dedicated her award for Happy New Year to Kangana’s performance in Queen. The latter reacted by saying she’d have preferred if the former had personally appreciated her performance rather than speak about it in public.
In an earlier interview with Rajeev Masand, Kangana had even gone on record to
say that she and Deepika weren’t friends.
Well, as strange as it seems, that’s Kangana Ranaut for you!
