Padmaavat: Deepika Padukone celebrates the success of the movie, talks about being threatened
Written by Abhishek Rana

Deepika Padukone is enjoying the critical and commercial acclaim of her movie, Padmaavat. Having suffered worst attacks by fringe groups who wanted to kill and immolate her, Deepika has come out victorious, and with a performance that’s being hailed as iconic and powerful. She talked about her experience during the making of the movie, and when it seemed to be under attack, at the Marwari thali, Mumbai while interacting with the media. About her parents’reaction after watching the movie, she said, “My parents are immensely proud. I saw that pride on their face. Mom and dad made a video call after their screening finished late at night and I was in my pyjama and going to bed. So for them, they just saw the film and then me… So, their expression was like, ‘Is she our daughter?’ I saw their expression and they were both brimming and glowing with pride.”

She also talked about her experience during the attacks by the Karni Sena, “You know, my parents never once had asked me if they should come and live with me during that whole phase because they were confident about the fact that I can handle this. That is my spirit, that is how we (my sister and I) have been brought up. We have learnt that what is right is right, what is wrong is wrong.”

She also shared her views on the character, saying, “Playing the character fascinated me about how her personality is very relevant in the present time. She is like me — a strong, intelligent and elegant woman… And when I played her on-screen, I saw a little bit of myself there. But her character was so deep, she is a queen who doesn’t speak very much but conveys everything in her way. That was a challenge to play.”
