The queen of Bollywood Deepika Padukone has just found a supporter in beauty queen Manushi Chhillar. As we all know by now, our newly-crowned Miss World is a strong opinionated woman. So when she was asked about DP receiving various threats for playing Padmavati, she made a powerful statement. She said:

I feel if there’s one thing all Indian women have in common is that we don’t feel persecuted for who we are… We face our challenges head-on. That’s what we need to do. We need to be confident in who we are. Definitely, we will face a lot of limitations and sometimes we feel it isn’t a women-friendly society. But as individuals, we should set an example and make women feel confident that you can do amazing things.

True that. Well said, Manushi!
