Deepika Takes A Dig At Swara, Says ‘You Probably Went Out To Buy Popcorn And Missed Disclaimers’
Recently, actor Swara Bhaskar called out the film's director Sanjay Leela Bhansali in an open letter and said "your act of thoughtlessly glorifying this misogynistic criminal practice is something you ought to answer for, Sir."

The climax of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum-opus Padmaavat has taken the nation by storm. While many were awed by the finale scene, which features Padmavati (played by Deepika Padukone) walking in anger as other women join her to commit self-immolation, some criticised it for glorifying the practice of Sati and Jauhar.

Recently, actor Swara Bhaskar called out the film's director Sanjay Leela Bhansali in an open letter, saying "your act of thoughtlessly glorifying this misogynistic criminal practice is something you ought to answer for, Sir."

When Deepika was asked about her take on the same, the actor said, "she probably missed the disclaimer at the beginning of the film."

"You probably went out to buy some popcorn and missed the initial disclaimers that come out," Deepika was quoted as saying by Bombay Times.

The actor further said that people should understand that the film "was set in an era- in the 12th and 13th century when rituals (Jauhar) like this were practised."

Actor Shahid Kapoor, who essays the role of Maharawal Ratan Singh in the movie, had said "every practice happens for various reasons. Within this film, Padmavati believed she would want to go into the fire as opposed to handing herself over to a man who is so evil, that he is ready to kill the entire kingdom to achieve one woman."
