Deepika Padukone’s visit to JNU yesterday has divided the social media into two halves. Where one section of the users are hating her decision while there’s a section backing her on this. Around 450K tweets have been posted since yesterday in the favour of #boycottchhapaak and a similar number of tweets are also up for #isupportdeepika.
This ain’t the first time when a Bollywood movie is bashed for what the stars in it do in their real life. We all remember how Sanjay Leela Bhansali was treated during Padmaavat. We also saw what that movie went on to do at the box office and. It collected over 580 crores at the worldwide box office.
Even Aamir Khan’s PK was bashed for using the regional angle to the story. Even that film went on to be a blockbuster earning over 850 crores at the worldwide box office. Aamir Khan’s Dangal was also attacked by the trollers and it did a plethora of 2000 crores.
Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor led Veere Di Wedding did around 140 crores. That movie was also bashed by the so-called ‘bhakts’ and proved to be a box-office hit. Now, targeting Deepika Padukone’s Chhapaak only hints at one thing – a box office success is on its way.
