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.

Bold colours, style and cuts with daring plunging necklines and over the top looks were the mainstay for Bollywood actresses Kangana Ranaut and Deepika Padukone at the 71st Cannes Film Festival.

After making a statement in sheer ensembles for their first red carpet look earlier this week, they grabbed attention with their appearance on Friday.

Kangana gave the girly gown a miss for a retro-inspired sequinned jumpsuit with a daring neckline, from the label Nedo By Nedret Tacirogl. She let her natural curls add to the dramatic look, elevated by her heavily done smokey eyes. The actress is being hosted here by Grey Goose, which is celebrating cinematic excellence through its global platform for the celebration of cinematic craft, Vive Le Cinema.

On the other hand, Deepika’s second look at the red carpet as L’Oreal Paris brand ambassador, made heads turn as she stepped out in an elaborate shocking pink feathered jumpsuit by Ashi Studio Couture.
