Deepika Padukone has been in the headlines since yesterday and not because of her upcoming film Chhapaak's release but because of her visit to JNU after the recent attack on students and teachers at the university. The actress took a big risk in showing up at JNU and standing in solidarity with the students given that her film is up for release on January 10. After Deepika's visit to the university, several people even called a boycott on her film but the maiden producer and lead star of Chhapaak seems to have made her point and is in no fear. The actress was glowing and all smiles at the premiere of the film held in Mumbai on Wednesday, January 8. Chhapaak Quick Movie Review: Deepika Padukone's Film is a Heart-Rending Watch.
