Deepika Padukone is once again at the receiving end of trolling. This time it is for her caption that she used while sharing the poster of '83. In the movie, she plays the role of former cricket captain Kapil Dev's wife, Romi Dev. She sported a short hair do in it, resembling the real-life figure. The fans lauded the look but some took notice of the caption that she wrote. Deepika Padukone Is a Femme Fatale With Oodles of Mystiqueness in Balmain for Mirchi Music Awards 2020 But That Jewellery Is Meh!.
The actress wrote, "To play a small part in a film that captures one of the most iconic moments in sporting history has been an absolute honour!83 for me is an ode to every woman who puts her husband’s dream before her own...” This was not taken down well by some of the netizens who believed that every woman should pursue her dreams as well. Check out the tweets below.

Fan Criticizes Her For Calling it an 'Ode'
Excuse me, but this is not an ode, for always the dreams of women were not considered important, because the man was always the main one, and the woman was only his shadow ....

One More on Housewives
No. Have you read about Sudha Murthy? Have you come across millions of housewives who have chosen their husbands and children's success ahead of their own? Promotion ke liye kuch bhi??

'It is Outdated Now'
"83 for me is an ode to every woman who puts her husband’s dream before her own...” is outdated now.
movies show that "it is more impotant to put own dreams before husband's"

While she is already getting hurled with harsh words for the caption, some are also criticizing her for her political stance. The actress had lent support to the students of JNU just ahead of the release of Chhapaak. She got mercilessly trolled by a chunk of audience who termed it as promotional gimmick. However, even after the episode is over, some of them are still trolling her on the subject. Deepika is also the producer of this Ranveer Singh starrer sports drama helmed by Kabir Khan.
