Days after Deepika Padukone hit the news with her humble gesture of celebrating her birthday amidst the acid attack victims, the actress was spotted at Jawaharlal Nehru University. Deepika who was in the nation’s capital promoting her upcoming film ’Chapaak, visited JNU campus on Tuesday to show solidarity with students. She also met the injured Aishe Ghosh, Jawaharlal Nehru Students’ Union (JNUSU) president protesting at the campus.
Hats off to #DeepikaPadukone.
This brave woman will face immense hate and criticism for standing up against a fascist regime. Today, she deserves all our prayers, love and respect. ??❤️??❤️ pic.twitter.com/fh1gu5KlqZ
