Before we tell you what the director said, first take a look at a picture from Deepika's much-talked-about visit that dominated headlines.

Meghna, who has also helmed movies like Raazi, maintained that we must learn to separate personal from professional. While speaking to a news agency, the director said, "We have to be able to separate between the personal and professional. What somebody does in their personal life and what they have done as a professional in a film needs to be looked at separately."
Meghna, further said, "While they are trying to separate the lens of personal and professional, if one can slightly divert the lens back to the reason why we made the film and what we are trying to talk about and bring to light... I think it is important."
On the other hand, here's what Deepika had to say about her visit: "What I wanted to say I said it two years ago when Padmaavat was released. What I am seeing today, it pains me. I hope it doesn’t become the new normal. That anyone can say anything and they can get away with it. I fear and I'm sad. This is not the foundation of our country."
