Kangana Ranaut wants Deepika Padukone to 'apologise' to acid attack survivors for hurting their sentiments
Recently, Deepika Padukone had faced backlash from social media users for a TikTok video, where she challenged an influencer to recreate her acid attack survivor ''look'' from her latest film Chhapaak. Kangana Ranaut, in a recent interview with India Today, said she wants Padukone to apologise for being insensitive. She said her sister Rangoli Chandel, an acid attack survivor, was hurt by the video.
"My sister was very hurt with that video. I am sure Deepika must have an explanation for that why and how, what circumstances, because sometimes marketing teams plan things in a way and we don’t have time to go exactly into the depths of that," said Ranaut.
Ranaut was also asked to comment on Padukone joining protesting students at New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). Padukone left without saying anything, however, she was photographed meeting JNU Students' Union president Aishe Ghosh, who was injured in the violence that took place at the university on 5 January.
