Deepika’s fans were delighted to see the new still but many of the Twitter users were upset with what Deepika wrote. Many bashed the actress for not putting forward feminist message with her ‘ode to every woman who puts her husband’s dream before her own’ comment.

One of the users wrote, “A woman’s dreams are not any less than her husbands, ugh…I hate how women are supposed to like be worshipped somehow for squashing their ambition as if that’s the best way to be a wife. Why couldn’t u just say a woman who supports her husbands dream like she would her own…?”

Ranveer also shared the still and captioned his post as, “The Wind beneath my Wings ❤ The Heart of the Hurricane. @deepikapadukone”
