A new period drama, Padmavati, is set to be released in India. The movie stars Bollywood actress, Deepika Padukone, but some people argue that the movie is controversial because it contorts history.
So when some artwork depicting the actress was placed on a street in India, protestors vandalized the painting.

People responded to the vandalism and said it was “heartbreaking.”
Couldn’t agree more. And too many people in our industry have stayed silent too long. We have to stand up against this intolerance https://t.co/XoNVKX2mjQ
