New Delhi, Nov 14:BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Tuesday slammed actress Deepika Padukone for giving a "lecture on regression". "Cine actress Deepika Padukone giving us lecture on regression! Nation can progress only when it is regression from her perspective," Swamy tweeted.

His comment follows Deepika's interview to IANS, wherein she has spoken about the ongoing controversy surrounding her forthcoming epic drama "Padmavati".

"It's appalling, it's absolutely appalling. What have we gotten ourselves into? And where have we reached as a nation? We have regressed," she said, commenting on the hullabaloo the movie is causing pre-release.

When a Twitter user wrote to Swamy that "she is a Dutch citizen", Swamy commented: "If true, she must disclose why. This is purely an Indian only debate."
