Deepika Padukone

A crowd of 100 people cried JAY SRI RAM n rubbed out my 48 hrs' intense work! In a series of tweets, the actress expressed her anger and even asked Textile Minister Smriti Irani to look into the matter and take appropriate action against the people who participated in the act. Deepika Padukone took to Twitter on October 18 to share an image of the Rangoli that was destroyed by haters.

Deepika Padukone, the muse of ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his upcoming period drama Padmavati, has been voted as the "Sexiest Woman Alive" for the second time in a row in an annual youth survey conducted by a leading publication. "Shocked", Karan had tweeted after the incident.

"It is absolutely heartbreaking to see the recent attack on artist Karan and his artwork", the Deepika said, terming it as "disgusting" and "appaling". Everyone knows how hard it has been for Sanjay Leela Bhansali to work on this project. Who is responsible for their actions? "Allow them to take law into their own hands and attack our freedom and right to individual expression time and again!?", she added.

After burning the posters of Padmavati post four days of their release, an outfit of Rajput community, Shri Rajput Karni Sena had threatened of disrupting the release of the film.

The mob led by Karni Sena had vandalised the sets of Padmavati in Jaipur earlier this year.

Last month, members of the Karni Sena burnt posters of the film after the first look of the main characters - Padmavati (Deepika), Maharawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor) and Allaudin Khilji (Ranveer Singh) - was released.

According to a report, something happened on the sets of Padmavati and due to this, the makers were forced to stop the shoot of the film.
