“I Hope This Doesn’t Become The New Normal”, Deepika Padukone on JNU Violence

Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone visited Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in New Delhi on Tuesday and her presence came out as a huge support to all the students protesting for their rights.

On Sunday, a masked mob with sticks, sledgehammer, and rocks attacked the students of JNU who were protesting against the controversial Indian Citizenship Amendment Act.

Where many big wigs of Bollywood have not spoken on the ongoing protests against CAA, this brave step by Deepika Padukone is being lauded on social media for standing up against the goons who attacked the students and staff at JNU.

Taking to India Today, Deepika Padukone expressed concern about the attack on students in several Indian universities. The actress said that she is scared and hopes that it doesn’t become the new normal.

 I said what I wanted to say 2 years ago when Padmaavat was releasing. It’s the same fear I felt two years at the time. When I see all this, I feel pain. I hope that this doesn’t become the new normal that anyone can say anything and get away with it.

I feel scared and feel sad too. I think this isn’t the foundation of our nation.

Many other Bollywood celebrities also appreciated Deepika for visiting JNU and showing support to the students despite her film ‘Chhapaak’s’ release in 2 days.

Famous Indian filmmaker Anurag Kashyap who is facing severe criticism for supporting the protestors said:

Indian producer Nikkhil Advani also showed support to Deepika Padukone 

Indian actress Sayani Gupta also praised Deepika for using her position to choose the correct path

Actor Vikrant Massey wrote:

Not just Indians, many Pakistanis have also shown their support for Deepika Padukone for finally standing up for what is right!

#IsupportDeepika vs #BoycottChhapaak

Where people are praising Deepika Padukone with the hashtag #IsupportDeepika, there are many Indians who are spewing venom over her visit to JNU and demanding to boycott her upcoming film ‘Chhapaak’ which revolves around the survivors of acid attacks.

Famous Indian actor turned politician Raj Babbar lashed out at that trending #BoycottChhapaak and said the movie is about acid attack survivor.
