Aditi Rao Hydari who is gearing up for the release of Padmavati took to social media to express her discomfort with the uproar the film is surrounded by.
Times of India in a tweet quoted Suraj Pal Amu, Haryana BJP Chief Media Coordinator who want to congratulate Meerut youth for announcing Rs 5cr bounty for beheading Deepika Padukone, Sanjay Leela Bhansali. He said, “We’ll reward the ones beheading them, with Rs 10cr, & also take care of their family’s needs”
Appalled by the news Aditi tweeted, “Basically, this is a ‘supari’ It’s a free for all, is there no difference between a gangster & a political leader? The government is quiet… why? This is a deep embarrassment for India, ”
The actress also believes this tweet will result in trolls and memes she said, “Ps- And now I’ll be trolled and abused and told my name is ‘ hydari ‘.”
Aditi, who reportedly plays the character of Mehrunisa, the wife of Alauddin Khilji in Padmavati, reacted to a troll who suggested she is playing the victim card, “Excuse me @InvincibleBabu! You think I need to play a ‘victim’ to make a point? maybe you can stop playing the ‘misogynist card’ already and grow a brain soon!”
The protests against Sanjay Leela Bhansali directed Padmavati has intensified in past few days. Actors od the film are too getting roped into the hooliganism first Deepika Padukone and now Aditi Rao Hydari. While the Central Board of Film Certification is yet to pass the film for release.
