Australian actress Ruby Rose on Saturday lent out her
support to actress Deepika Padukone, who has been threatened of physical harm
over the release of her film "Padmavati".
She is "in shock" with the controversy and called Deepika "one of the strongest women".
"I am in shock at reading what my dear friend is going through but in absolute awe of her strength and courage. Deepika you are one of the strongest women I know," Rose tweeted.
In reply, Deepika sent Rose a folded-hands emoji.
Deepika and Rose shared screen space in 2017 Hollywood film "xXx: Return of Xander Cage".
Deepika, who plays the title role of Rajput Queen in "Padmavati", has received threats from various Rajput organisations, who have demanded the movie's release be stalled.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, "Padmavati" also features Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.
