One by one, the star cast of Padmaavat have coming out in the media and discussing about the film to which they have given over a year-and-a-half of their lives. Deepika in an interview with DNA, talked about her complete journey in the film, Padmaavat.
A reporter asked Deepika, “What was your parents reaction to Padmaavat?”
“I FaceTimed them after they saw the movie in Bengaluru. We do that after each of my films. But this time around, it was different. They were emotional, speechless and in awe. I could feel them questioning, ‘Is this our daughter?’ But then again, I could see them say, ‘Yes, she is our daughter.’ There were so many emotions that they were feeling and looking at them, there was a lot going on, within me.”
Deepika explained about the Jauhar scene to which Swara Bhaskar has reacted strongly
Deepika said: “Let me put things in perspective. We are not endorsing jauhar. You must see the scene/practice in context to the period in which it was shown. And when you do that, you will realise, it’s so powerful. You do not feel like she is doing anything wrong. You want her to embrace the flames because she is going to be united with the man she loves.”
