Esha Gupta had said that instead of banning Padmavati, people should focus on social issues like rape.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati has faced backlash from several fringe groups across the country. But the team of the film has also gained a lot of support from the film fraternity. Many celebs including Alia Bhatt, Twinkle Khanna, Sonam Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor and many more have extended their support to the film. The latest one to join the troupe is the actress Esha Gupta.
Indian Express quoted the actress saying, ”In India, right now no one says, ‘We will ban this or that,’ when rape happens. But a film is getting so much mileage. Because even these people know that they will get mileage out of a movie but not out of a rape that happens. They don’t think rape is that important. They should focus on actual social issues.”

Talking about Esha Gupta, the actress on several instances in the past has been trolled by the people. And most of the times it was due to her outfits. The actress has faced all those trolls very smartly and has always replied with an even bolder post.
Esha talked about those posts saying, ”I won’t say revenge. Because I don’t think they are even important for me to take any revenge from. But if I have the confidence, the body and by God’s grace, you guys have supported. So why not just go for it? Trolls are just 5 per cent. 95 per cent (people) love me. So, I will concentrate on that.”
But it seems that people weren’t quite happy with the actress’ statement. Soon they started trolling her for the same. Check out some of the comments here:
