There seems to be no end in sight to controversies over Padmavati movie. Now, after Padmavati star Deepika Padukone said that we have regressed as a nation, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy has launched an attack on the actress on Twitter. In an interview to IANS, Deepika Padukone, while talking about controveries surrounding Padmavati release, had said, “It’s appalling, it’s absolutely appalling. What have we gotten ourselves into? And where have we reached as a nation? We have regressed. Launching an attack on ‘Padmavati’ Deepika Padukone over ‘regressed’ remarks, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy wrote on Twitter, “Cine actress Deepika Padukone giving us lecture on regression!! Nation can progress only when it is regression from her perspective.” After Swamy made remarks against Deepika, a number of Twitter users started commenting on the Swamy’s tweet.

“As a woman, I feel proud to be a part of this film, and to tell this story, which needs to be told. And it needs to be told now,” Deepika said in the interview.

The film starring Deepika Padukone as Padmavati, Shahid Kapoor as Maharawal Ratan Singh and Ranveer Singh as Alauddin Khalji, is based on the legend of Rajput queen Padmavati.

Rajput groups and some BJP members have accused Bhansali of distorting facts in the movie.

Padmavati director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been facing trouble since he started shooting for the movie. The set of the movie was vandalised twice — in Jaipur and Kolhapur — and the director was roughed up by members of Karni Sena during the Jaipur schedule of the film earlier this year. Bhansali has already issued an appeal to clarify that there is no dream sequence between Deepika’s Padmavati and Ranveer’s Khilji as claimed by Rajput groups.

The film is scheduled to be released on December 1.

      What if her father is protrayed as transgender and mother a artist by some writer, then lets talk about freedom of expression and regression. Those who preach freedom of expression should understand that it is a slippery slope, and anything should not be accepted as that. Hiding political Agenda to attack faith and belief of people is not creativity. There are lot of other ways to show creativity. Do not try to rewrite history that the sickulars have tried to do so far. This nation has accepted lot of things and creativity as well. This same regressive nation has made the you and film Industry that it is today.

          Yes Ms Padukone, you have become such a big artist that the whole nation is regressed, what a notion you carry about the people and culture where you made your career, there is no creativity and smartness in twisting history to create controversy and hurting sentiments and faith and belief of people. It is ok when the same people helped make money for you. You and film fraternity should not forget that it is the same nation and people whose belief and culture is used by your industry to make money. In the name of freedom of expression you cannot trample on faith, belief and twist history as it suits you. Well I am not watching any of your movies anymore. I am regressive. well done thanks for letting your true self known.
