After some struggles against the protesters, the movie Padmaavat hit the theater and is striding towards the success that was predicted for the movie. There was a time when the film was surrounded by the controversies. Moreover, we saw people tossing death threats and a bounty on the lead actress (Deepika Padukone). However, this could not stop Deepika Padukone.
Deepika Padukone Recalled An Incident
In a recent interview, she was asked about how she felt after receiving those death threats. She recalled one incident. She said,“I will tell you an incident which probably sums up what gave them (parents) the belief or courage. I was 14 or 15. I remember one evening my family and I were walking down the street. We had probably finished eating at a restaurant. My sister and my father walked ahead and my mother and I were walking behind. And this man brushed past me.”
She Slapped The Man
A lot of girls would ignore this and move forward but Deepika is not one of those girls. She is a total badass. She said, “I could have, at that point, ignored, pretended like it didn’t happen. I turned back, followed this person, caught him by the collar – I was 14 – in the middle of the street slapped him and walked away. From that day on my parents knew that this girl can take care of herself.”
Don’t Overlook These Things
If you don’t have the courage to step up for yourself, your parents will always worry about your safety. These kinds of things should not be tolerated. Probably it is hard to slap someone but if you anything like this you should speak up against it at that moment.
