Surat, October 20: Actress Deepika Padukone on Wednesday urged Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani to take action against the attackers who ruined artist Karan Ks rangoli depicting a poster of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s “Padmavati” here.

“Absolutely heartbreaking to see the recent attack on artist Karan and his artwork! Disgusting and appalling to say the least,” Deepika tweeted, along with photographs showcasing the before and after of the “attack”.

“Who are these people? Who is responsible for their actions? For how long are we going to let this go on? Allow them to take law into their own hands and attack our freedom and right to individual expression time and again,” questioned the actress, who essays the title role in the historical drama.

Deepika then tagged Irani and wrote: “This has to stop now and action must be taken! Smriti Irani.”

On October 15, Karan tagged Deepika on the micro-blogging site and wrote: “A crowd of 100 people cried Jai Shri Ram and rubbed out my 48 hours intense work!”

The artist also shared two photographs on social media. In one image, he can be seen making a rangoli inspired by the poster of the film, while the other shows the artwork completely vandalized by attackers.

“Padmavati” also features Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh.

In the film, Deepika plays the role of Rajput queen Padmavati, while Shahid will be seen as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer will essay the role of Alauddin Khilji.

During its production, the film witnessed many ups and downs.

Earlier this year, activists of Shri Rajput Karni Sena assaulted Bhansali and vandalized the movie’s Jaipur set over alleged distortions in the film’s script.

They were forced to move to Maharashtra to continue shooting. Still, an outdoor set of the historic period drama in Kolhapur was burnt down after two dozen unidentified people torched it.

The Shri Rajput Karni Sena has maintained it will oppose screening of the film if the facts are “distorted”.

“Padmavati”, presented by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Bhansali Productions, is set for a December 1 release. (IANS)

New Delhi, October 20: Deepika Padukone has requested the Information and Broadcasting minister Smriti Irani to take action against culprits who destroyed a rangoli featuring her as Rani Padmini of her upcoming film Padmavati.

One member of Vishwa Hindu Parishad and four members of Rajput Karni Sena were arrested for vandalizing the rangoli prepared by a local artist at the Rahul Raj Mall on past Sunday. The artist took 48 hours to make the rangoli and posted a picture of it on Twitter. Police arrested the perpetrators on the basis of a video footage displaying men shouting ‘Jai Shree Ram’ as they destroyed the rangoli.

Surat Police Commissioner Satish Sharma requested mall owners to come forward and file a case against those who do such wrongdoings. “We have arrested five persons, four of them belonging to outfit Karni Sena and one from the VHP. More persons are likely to be arrested as the video footage recovered by us shows 8-10 persons involved in the activity,” Sharma said.

“I also want to make it clear that the police will deal with strictness against any such action. Freedom of expression is everyone’s right in a democracy, but vandalism will not be allowed,” he said.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has been facing a lot of hostility since its inception. Bhansali was attacked last year by members of Karni Sena who claim that history is being distorted in Bhansali’s film. The same group burnt posters last month featuring Deepika, Shahid, and Ranveer. They have also warned to thwart the screening of the film if facts were twisted. The movie is scheduled to release on December 1, 2017.
