2020 hasn’t proved to be a good year for Deepika Padukone. Even since this year started, she embroiled herself in one or the other controversy. It has been just 4 months of this year, and she has been in 5 controversies so far. In January this year, she made news when she joined the JNU protests in Delhi, a day before the release of her film Chhapaak. While some called her anti-national, others called her visit a mere PR stunt. As a result, people ended up boycotting her film and it was labeled a big flop at the box office. She then again made news when she challenged a Tik-Tok influencer to try acid-attack look. People called it an insensitive PR stunt by making acid attack a mere look to try on! Then she moved ahead and waited for the release of film 83 that stars her and Ranveer Singh. Sharing a glimpse from the film, she wrote in caption, “83 for me is an ode to every woman who puts her husband’s dream before her own…” Her tweet didn’t go well with fans who slammed her for “backward tweet” and promoting patriarchy at a time when women need to be more confident and supportive of womenfolk. The next one happened after PM Modi announced 21 days lockdown in India. As soon as the announcement was made, several Bollywood celebs including Deepika were seen posting their workout videos or routine. Seeing this, filmmaker Farah Khan slammed them saying that they are privileged and have no other work than to maintain their figure during the time of this pandemic. To defend herself, Deepika came forward and said, “I know a lot of people have a problem with exercise videos that are going up. But to be honest, putting up exercise videos — rather, exercising, not putting up videos — it’s more about how you feel. It’s not really about how you look.” She also said that it helps her and husband Ranveer Singh get through the day. And the latest controversy happened when she announced a Live Chat with WHO Chief Tedros to talk about the importance of mental health during this pandemic. People bashed her for this association as WHO and its chief Tedros are being criticized and questioned for misleading the entire world about coronavirus. As a result, Deepika had to cancel her live chat. Well, it’s not even half of the year, and 2020 has been pretty controversial for Deepika. We now have to see what this year holds for her.
