Deepika Padukone on the women power in Padmaavat: I find her journey so relevant today

29th January 2018   ·   0 Comments

Even as her latest film Padmaavat drew ire from various feminists including Bollywood actor Swara Bhaskar, Deepika Padukone has claimed the film “looks at the power of women”.

“It looks at the power of women. Today again we are standing up for ourselves with dignity… I find her journey so relevant today,” Deepika said about her character in the film, Rani Padmavati.

In a long letter to filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Swara accused the film of making her feel “reduced to a vagina”. She took particular offence to the film’s purported finale, in which Deepika Padukone’s Rani Padmavati commits herself to fire to protect her honour.
