Subramanian Uninvites Deepika From ‘Indian Only’ Padmavati Debate
As the Padmavati debate rages on, it seems that everyone wants to give their two cents to it. First, it was the Union Minister for Drinking Water and Sanitation, Uma Bharti. Now, it is Subramanian Swamy, the Rajya Sabha MP, whose latest tweet takes a dig at Deepika Padukone.
This tweet, we presume, is in response to Deepika Padukone calling the protests against Padmavati a regressive move.
Of course, this tweet has spurred an array of tweets that claim that Deepika Padukone isn’t an Indian because she holds a Danish passport.
For the uninitiated, Deepika Padukone does hold a Danish passport. Here is a list of more Bollywood actors who hold passports of different nationalities.
