Bajirao Mastani’s latest song Pinga has stirred a lot of controversy. The song is receiving mixed reactions from the audiences. Some people loved Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra’s thumkas while others fretted over the authenticity and historical aspects of the song. Mohini Karkarey, a descendant of the Peshwas, wrote an open letter to Sanjay Leela Bhansali highlighting the errors and lack of research by the director.
As the speculations go on, Deepika, who plays Mastani, has finally spoken on this topic. In an interview she said, “Yes, I read some stories about it today. But I have no idea what it’s all about.” Ask her about her opinion on the same and Dippy turns defensive. She added, “I think the best person to talk about this would be Sanjay Leela Bhansali and I guess, I would rather let him clear it.”
We hope the cloud of controversies around the song clears soon.
