Kangana Ranaut refuses to sign petition supporting Deepika Padukone for Padmavati

It's been months now ever since Padmavati controversy has been going on. Haters have even given death threats to film's lead heroine Deepika Padukone. In an attempt to offer support and leagalise matter in the right way, actor and politician Shabana Azmi has decided to voice the issue taking it to the higher powers in the capital. As her support, Shabana Azmi has come out with a petition which is called Deepika Bachchao. According to sources, various Bollywood actresses have to sign the petition to show their support to Deepika Padukone and once all of them have signed, the matter will be taken forward.

About the petition, a source earlier told a leading daily, "Everyone has been approached. We are awaiting the signatures of A-listers like Kangana Ranaut, Katrina Kaif, and two more actresses. Once they sign, we will be taking the matter forward." But even after all of this, rumours were rife that Kangana wasn't much in favour of signing this petition.

Now finally breaking her silence on the issue, Kangana decided to clear the air as she mentioned that she will completely support Deepika Padukone but she
doesn't believe in joining Shabana Azmi in her 'movement'. She told a leading daily. - "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."

In this case, Kangana has referred to Shabana Azmi’s step-son Farhan Akhtar who wrote an open letter on Facebook during Kangana - Hrithik Roshan controversy where he defended his close friend Roshan instead of the actress.

What do you have to say about Kangana's remark on the whole issue? Do tell us in the comments below.
