Ever since the actress visited JNU Campus to check on the injured students, she was brought into the controversy of left vs right debate in the media. Many right-wing fringe elements cursed her and made a hype against her film Chhapaak which was released this month along with Tanaji: The Unsung Warrior. The film failed to do well when compared to the other while getting the backlash, she made a promotional video doing it with a Tik Tok influencer.
She has tried to created the roles she had liked from her career listing the one from her debut movie Om Shanti Om, Piku and recently released Chhapaak. She was seen in the video challenging her to make up artist for recreating her looks. Soon someone posted her video slamming the actress for the same and calling it to be an insensitive thing to do by her on the Microblogging site. Then came many more tweets slamming the leggy lass. Some of these are as under:
I’m appalled at Deepika Padukone’s Tiktok challenge on the Chhapaak acid survivor ‘look’. It is like making a movie on the Holocaust and tattooing numbers on your hand as promotion.

The problem with Deepika Padukone endorsing a makeup challenge on Chhapak is that she treated it as one of her “looks” and dismissed the entire trauma behind it. She proved that it was merely makeup for her & she clearly doesn’t understand the depth of what survivors go through.

No @deepikapadukone.This promo isn’t cool or cute. It’s insensitive & ghastly.
The movie wasn’t about you & your make up. It was about a woman scarred for life.And victims like her,whose marks can’t be wiped off,unlike your make up.
You lost the plot,alas. https://t.co/9Zt8XEmSqI

What I feel here is.. Deepika is considering malti’s look beautiful and her favourite.. maybe she didn’t know about how this video is going to end up like.. Yes it’s disgusting to creat a face like the survivors’ in your tiktok makeup videos..
Ps- pls correct me if Im wrong. https://t.co/oMYBjXHSVu
