I don't endorse jauhar in ‘Padmaavat’: Deepika
Since the release of ‘Padmaavat’, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor have been busy celebrating the success of the film. While the entire film industry stood in solidarity with the film, some had problems with the self-immolation or jauhar scene at the end of the movie. Deepika seems to have an answer for those questions.

Talking about the latest discussion surrounding jauhar scene, the actress said that neither she nor the makers endorse the practice in any way. She also added that the scene must be taken in context to the time period the film was set in. Deepika feels that when taken in its intended context, the scene is powerful as she thinks her character finally reunited with the one she loves.

While she is aware of the criticisms, the ‘Padmaavat’ actress also pointed out the phenomenal praise the climactic scene has been getting, with many standing and applauding it in theatres.

December 1 could have been the day that Deepika Padukone’s fans saw her in all her regal glory as she played the role of the goddess queen Padmini in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’. However, as the wait for the film’s delayed release will go on for a while, fans have a number of mesmerising posters, a hair-raising trailer and two songs to watch on repeat.

While everyone eagerly awaits the CBFC’s clearance, lead actors Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor, have come forward to voice their support to their director and condemn the recent attacks. On a lighter note, Deepika recently revealed her most memorable moments on the sets of the magnum opus while gushing about its “chilling” and “extraordinary” posters. Although she could not reveal much about her special moments in the film, she did state that the few scenes depicted in the posters were some of her favourite.

Rumours were rife that director Bhansali is planning on releasing a second trailer that will allegedly put an end to baseless talks about the film that gave rise to a year-long controversy. However, there has been no confirmation on the same.
