Recently, Sherlyn Chopra reacted to the controversy and told India Today, “Deepika Padukone, the sympathiser of Tukde Tukde gang gyrating in a saffron coloured bikini in a film song titled ‘Besharam Rang’ is most certainly not acceptable to the millions of Hindus who consider saffron as the colour of purity, faith & devotion.”
On the other hand, a section of social media users are feeling proud to see Deepika Padukone unveiling the FIFA cup.
