Kangana Ranaut praises Deepika Padukone’s Oscars appearance after depression dig. Deepika Padukone introduced SS Rajamouli’s Naatu Naatu performance at the 95th Academy Awards — and Kangana could not hold back praising the star.
Kangana’s praise on Deepika comes a few years after she took an indirect dig at the latter. In 2020, on World Mental Health Day, Kangana had asked her fans to watch her film, Judgementall Hai Kya. She had also tweeted, “The film that we made for Mental Health awareness was dragged to the court by those who run depression ki dukan, after media ban, name of the film was changed just before the release causing marketing complications but it’s a good film, do watch it today.”
Last year, a journalist asked Kangana about her opinion on an influencer shaming Deepika for her ‘hemlines and necklines’ during the Gehraiyaan promotions. Kangana replied, “Look, I am here to defend those who can’t defend themselves. Alright? She can defend herself. She has the privilege, the platform and I can’t promote her film here. Sit down.”
Kangana wrote, “How beautiful @deepikapadukone looks, not easy to stand there holding entire nation together, carrying its image, reputation on those delicate shoulders and speaking so graciously and confidently. Deepika stands tall as a testimony to the fact that Indian women are the best (red heart and national flag emojis).”
