Deepika Padukone who will be next seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak opposite Vikrant Massey based on a true story of Laxmi Agarwal who is an acid attack survivor.
A while ago, Kabir Singh who is directing 83’ starring Ranveer Singh playing the role of Kapil Dev based on the iconic win of 83’ Cricket World Cup, made an announcement that Deepika will be seen playing the role of Romi Bhatia, Kapil Dev’s wife.
Recently, during an interview with Vogue India, Deepika was asked if she would want to work with someone who is accused of sexual harassment to which she replied, “No! I would not.” Deepika has always been very clear about her work commitments and priorities.
Deepika along with ex-boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor was spotted outside Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety director, Luv Ranjan. And soon after, #NotMyDeepika started trending on Twitter as the director has been booked under a sexual harassment case by an actress. Not just this, the fans started calling Deepika a hypocrite and asking her to rethink the choice of working with a sexual accused man!
Though Ranjan’s #MeToo case wasn’t taken forward but the fans started trolling Deepika for even considering that as an option.
