Deepika Padukone’s ‘Padmavati’ has been banned by the censor board in India meanwhile Mahira Khan starrer ‘Verna’ has met the same fate here in Pakistan. When asked of the Padmavati ban the Baajirao Mastaani starlet had the following to say in her recent interview with Pinkvilla,
“It’s amusing actually sometimes when I look at it and I actually look at this as a moment for all of us to be celebrating this woman’s life. To celebrate everything she stood for, to celebrate everything that she believed in, to celebrate Rajput culture and heritage. This is a time for us to celebrate really.”
Deepika Padukone Reacts to Ban on Verna
Speaking of bans when she was asked of her opinion on the ban Mahira Khan starrer ‘Verna’ is facing and how people are so quick to judge films she said,
“Yes, It’s sad that a small section of people don’t understand the power of cinema and what it can do to the world. It brings people together, it spreads love, it’s fascinating what cinema can do and it’s sad that a certain group of people choose to not recognise that.”
Both films are set to release this fall and what becomes of them is yet to be seen.
