Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut on Monday asked Deepika Padukone to apologize for hurting the sentiments of people by asking a make-up artist to recreate the look of her character Malti from her latest film Chhapaak.
A viral video of Deepika asking a make-up artist Faby to recreate three of her looks from her films including that of her latest film Chhapaak in which she plays the character of an acid attack survivor Malti had created much uproar in social media.
Several social media users slammed Deepika for treating the face of an acid attack survivor as a ‘make up look’.
They also claimed that the actress had ignored the plight of acid attack survivors and is just trying to promote her film Chhapak.
Moreover, Kangana on Monday also lashed out at Deepika and said that her sister was quite hurt seeing the video.
In an interview to India Today, Kangana said, “Rangoli is an acid attack survivor and she was very hurt seeing the video. Sometimes, marketing teams tend to go overboard with their promotions, and I am sure Deepika must be having some explanation for this.”
Kangana also asked Deepika to apologize for the video.
The people who are hurt like my sister should be apologised to. This is not a make-up look and nobody should try and achieve it. That kind of insensitivity should be apologized for and there is no harm in doing that because we all make mistakes,” she added.
