Ever since Deepika Padukone went to JNU campus to show her support to the protesters, she has been both appreciated and bashed for her stance. Read on…

While the Jawaharlal Nehru University which was under utter chaos and heavy protests, Deepika Padukone decided to stand with the protestants who got injured a night ago and showed her support to them. Besides having a clear vision of knowing that she would be hates, trolled and even her film Chhapaak‘s business might suffer given the condition of the country and how it is divided into two parties, she went and maintained what she felt right in her heart.

The visit angered BJP leaders who expressed it in social media. Soon enough, the hashtags BoycottChhapaak and BlockDeepika began trending in Indian Twitter with members of the incumbent Bharatiya Janata Party contributing in its proliferation. In response, ISupportDeepika was floated which gained greater traction and by the end of the day, her follower count had increased significantly.

This also led to a voive of strong support from many B-Town insiders who lauded Deepika for being clear-headed and many known names like Anurag Kashyap, Swara Bhasker, Shweta Tripathi, Vishal Bharadwaj, Vishal Dadlani , Ali Fazal, Richa Chadha etc went to attend peaceful protests held in Carter road and at India Gate in Mumbai too. Also, so many leading names like The Khans, The Kapoors, The Bachchans have maintained their silence on the ongoing issue which is a debatable issue.

Well, talking about Deepika, she surely went on her will and it was solely her decision to stand with the protesters and not a PR stunt or run by PR machinery as no PR firm would like to take a decision that can go against the actor getting boycotted or the film’s business getting affected. We thoroughly support Deepika in her endeavor and have to say that she is a true hero!

Talking about the film, Chhapaak has continued to mint rave reviews from the leading journalists and publications!
