Yesterday rumour of Kangana Ranaut blatantly refusing to let support to Deepika Padukone started doing the rounds. Rumours said that Kangana Ranaut had point blank refused to sign Shabana Azmi's petition of ‘Deepika Bachao’. In fact it was said that Kangana did so because she doesn’t share a cordial relationship with Deepika Padukone.
Refuting all these rumours Kangana has now come out and cleared her stand on this issue. The very vocal and outspoken actress made it clear that she has no qualms with Deepika. However she stated that her issue is with Shabana Azmi who is spear heading this particular petition of ‘Deepika Bachao’.
Kangana clarifies, "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."
Guess that sets the records straight on how Kangana has no issues with Deepika. Interestingly, Kangana Ranaut is also shooting for a historical drama based on Rani Laxmibai titled, MANIKARNIKA: THE QUEEN OF JHANSI.
