Deepika Padukone is one of the leading actresses in Bollywood. With her films like Om Shanti Om, Goliyon Ki Raasleela – Ram Leela, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Cocktail, Love Aaj Kal, Piku and many others, she proved her acting mettle. Last year, Deepika Padukone played one of the most challenging roles in her career of Rani Padmavati for Padmaavat.
The character of Rani Padmavati wasn’t an easy one for Deepika. The actor took herself into a zone where she had to experience different emotions which also affected her mentally a lot. If that wasn’t enough, Karni Sena protested against the film’s release. Not only that, Deepika even received death threats and like her nose or head will be chopped off if the film releases.
All this led to the film’s delay for 2 months. It was earlier scheduled to release on November 12, 2017; however, due to the several protests, Padmaavat hit the screens on January 25, 2018.
The actor’s performance was praised by the audiences and the critics. Everyone loved how she performed the role of Rani Padmavati with utmost finesse on screen. So, it was natural of her fans to expect that she will be given the Best Actor Female Award.
However, at the recently held Filmfare Awards 2019, Deepika wasn’t given the award. Alia Bhatt won the Best Actor Award for Raazi. This didn’t go well with her fans. One of her fan clubs commented on her Instagram post where they bashed Filmfare as well as Sanjay Leela Bhansali for not valuing and respecting Deepika and her efforts enough. The fan group even raised the point that if Ranveer Singh and Ayushmann Khurrana can share the Best Actor Award then why wasn’t Deepika given the award along with Alia.
The Piku actor apologized to her fan club for letting them down. She replied, “To all my fans, I am sorry I let you all down and promise to work harder than ever before…”.
