Deepika seeks Lord Ganesha's blessings for Padmaavat.
Deepika Padukone prayed at Mumbai's famed SiddhiVinayak temple a couple of days before Padmaavat releases world-wide.
Late last year, individuals opposed to the film threatened Deepika with beheading for acting in Padmaavat -- a threat sadly not condemned by either the President or prime minister of this country.
As actor Rohit Roy told Rediff.com: "Even using the word behead is barbaric."
May Lord Ganesha bless Deepika always.
