When Kangana Ranaut refused to sign the petition to support Deepika, everyone thought it was because of their ongoing cold war. However, when BollywoodLife got in touch with the actress to ask the actress about denying support to Ms Padukone she said, “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.” Also Read - Hrithik Roshan Wins Hearts After Replying to Fan Who Noticed Damp Wall: Living on Rent, Apna Ghar Le Raha Hu

Earlier during the Hrithik Roshan – Kangana Ranaut controversy, no one from Bollywood really supported the Queen actress. Azmi had retweeted an interview by Hrithik where the actor denied being even friends with Kangana.
