Actress Deepika Padukone is busy promoting her upcoming film Padmavati. The beautiful actress today shared a note written to her by Hema Malini.
The Piku actress shared this lovely note on her Instagram.
The note reads, 'Dear Deepika, The contents of the book that you so graciously launched take on an added meaning as I land over the baton to you for a glorious continuation of artistic excellence'.
A few weeks ago, Deepika attended the launched Hema Malini's biography titled 'Hema Malini: Beyond the Dream Girl'.
Talking about Hema Malini’s biography, writer Ram Kamal Mukherjee has penned Hema's journey till now in this book. From Hema's much gossiped platonic love affair with Jeetendra to the incident of bumping into dashing Dharmendra for the first time — this book claims to have a lot of never-mentioned-before facts. The book is divided into 23 chapters, of which two are dedicated to Hema and Dharmendra's daughters Esha and Ahana.
On the other hand, Deepika's upcoming film Padmavati also starring Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh is all set to release. Two songs Ghoomar and Ek Dil Ek Jaan from the film are out.
The film has landed in controversy as many people including the Rajput Karni Sena and some political leaders don't want it to release. They believe that Bhansali has distorted some historical facts in Padmavati. However, the director clearly stated that he has not shown anything wrong in the film and respects Rani Padmini.
About the ongoing controversy surrounding Padmavati, the actress had said, "It's appalling, it's absolutely appalling. What have we gotten ourselves into? And where have we reached as a nation? We have regressed. The only people we are answerable to is the censor board, and I know and I believe that nothing can stop the release of this film."
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Padmavati is slated to release on December 1, 2017.
