However, after facing huge criticism the actress finally responded to it and said she “did not mean to be insensitive”. It all started when Deepika shared pictures and video of herself dancing on the streets of Mumbai, while the city was facing heavy rainfall. She was seen posing with a huge tree that seems to have fallen due to the cyclone. In no time the netizens called her out for being insensitive and conducting a photoshoot amid the storm.
Deepika while responding to the tweet told a daily, “I live in a flat, which is on the ground floor. This was a tree that we had planted many years ago outside our house, which unfortunately fell during the cyclone. The tree fell on our car and so my husband Rohit and I stepped out in the rains to move it from the car. During that time my husband thought of clicking a few pictures. It was just something we did spontaneously. My husband is a good photographer, so we just clicked a few pictures.”
The TV actress also added, “I am sad for all those who were affected due to the cyclone and I didn’t mean to be insensitive by posing near an uprooted tree. I would not encourage anyone to do something like that.”
