Deepika Padukone has finally raised her voice against the group that has been trying to put hinderances on her upcoming movie Padmavati.
After the rangoli issue coming into limelight and the artist tweeting to Deepika to raise her voice on the same, the Bollywood beauty came to his rescue. She tweeted to Smriti Irani asking her to stop all this.
In her tweet she wrote, “this has to be stopped now and ACTION must be taken @smritiirani.”

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming magnum opus has been in news for some or the other reason, ever since the actors started filming for it. This time, the controversy did not have anything to do with the cast or director of the film, but a Rangoli which was made by an artist in Surat.
Karan K created Deepika Padukone’s first look from the film, in his rangoli, which took good 48 hours time. However, much to his dismay, a group of goons barged in chanting Jai Sai Ram and created a ruckus there. They spoilt the entire rangoli and left from the place.
A disheartened Karan then took to social media to share before and after pictures of his rangoli and tagged the actors, hoping someone would revert to it.
He wrote, “#padmavati Rangoli controversy! A crowd of 100 people cried “JAY SRI RAM” n rubbed out my 48 hrs’ intense work! @deepikapadukone @FilmPadmavati.”

Earlier, a Rajput group had given an open threat to the makers of the film to burn cinema houses and multiplexes if they are not shown special screening of the film to know that it suits their sentiments.
Also, the makers had to go through a lot of trouble initially, when around 20-30 people vandalised the film’s set in Jaipur.
Padmavati, featuring Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, will release on December 1.
