Not right: Juhi Chawla on death threats to Deepika Padukone

Saturday, December 02, 2017

Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Padmavati' has been mired in controversies over its release with several outfits alleging that history has been "distorted" in the movie. Both, Bhansali and Deepika have received death threats for being a part of the film and actor Juhi Chawla, who was speaking at the book launch of Jyotin Goel's book "Bheem- Destiny's Warrior" has said people should not flare up and give threats to Deepika Padukone for starring in 'Padmavati'.

Asked about how she sees death threats being given to another actor, Juhi said, "I am not speaking of 'Padmavati' the film, but the threats were not right. You watch the same heroine in other films, go crazy for her, you love her so much, she has tremendous fan following. Then, to threaten her like this, I didn't feel was right."

Various Rajput groups and political leaders have accused Bhansali of distorting history by filming a romantic dream sequence between Rajput queen Padmini and Sultan Alauddin Khilji, a claim repeatedly denied by the filmmaker. Historians are divided on whether Padmavati actually existed.

Juhi said people should react to things with sensitivity and not flare up in anger. "At the end of the day, films are made by directors, by the team (and) you're playing a part. Just for that reason, I'd say a little sensitivity is (needed) and people should have patience. Not flare up and say things like that, that too to a woman."

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
