'Deepika Padukone has all my support, but I am a bit wary of Shabana Azmi's investment in left wing versus right wing politics.'
Kangana Ranaut says she will not support the 'Deepika Bachao' letter campaign, led by Shabana Azmi as she would like to steer clear of the veteran actor's 'investment in left wing versus right wing politics'.
Kangana also claims Azmi 'character assassinated' her when she was being bullied. She, however, did not elaborate on that controversy.
'I was filming Manikarnika... in Jodhpur, got a call from my dear friend Anushka Sharma to sign the petition written by Ms Shabana Azmi, I explained to Anushka that Deepika Padukone has all my support, but I am a bit wary of Shabana Azmi's investment in left wing versus right wing politics,' Kangana said in an official statement.
The National Award-winning actress said the Padmavati star has all her support as an individual amid the death threats been issued to her along with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
'I have my own set of ideas and opinions about the current situation in our country. I am on the fence about many things and being a part of a feminist movement called 'Deepika Bachao' led by someone who character assassinated me when I was bullied, seems to be one of them.'
'Anushka understood, but I am glad they reached out to me, like I said Deepika has all my support I am an individual perfectly capable of supporting who I like without anyone's support,' she said.
Kangana's clarification comes after reports surfaced that the actor refused to sign Azmi's movement.
