Indian movie star actress, Deepika Padukone gives a subtle response to politician, who directed a death threat at her.
The release of blockbuster Padmavati, a movie that tells the story of a legendary medieval queen, Padmini has since sparked controversies in the country.
There has been nationwide protests against the film, as Hindu groups believed the activities in which the movie maker used in portraying Padmini is beneath her royal status.
Airing his discomfort to the movie, a politician from India’s governing BJP party offered to pay a $1.5m (£1.13m) bounty for anyone who beheaded Ms Padukone and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Responding to the politician’s death threat, Padukone empresses how she feels. “Well, at this point, as a woman, an artiste and a citizen of this country I feel angry, I feel let down and I also find it amusing.”
She, however, stressed that she has no intention of being scared. “I will never feel scared. Fear is not an emotion I have ever identified with.”
