Deepika Padukone is trending on social media for a few days now. The actress showed her presence at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), where she stood in solidarity with the students. The silent presence for 10 minutes here made more noise on social media, just ahead of her film Chhapaak's release. Trolls endlessly trolled her for supporting the students and started trending topics like #BoycottChhaapaak, Block Deepika and more. The latest one that is trending is #दीपिका_हटाओ_LUX_बचाओ. The trolls are demanding the soap brand, Lux to remove her as their brand's face. Deepika Padukone Makes a Dazzling Appearance In Yellow as She Attends a Photography Exhibition (View Pics).
DP has been promoting the brand for some years now, joining the bandwagon of many other A-lister Bollywood beauties who did the same for decades. Her association with the brand was celebrated by the fans until today. However, her presence at JNU has divided the fans on social media. While some of them are calling this a baseless trend, others are asking the brand to take it seriously. Just like the usual routine of the internet, it is flooded with memes and jokes as well.

Earlier, the trolls were hurling negative comments on the actress with the hashtag #DeepikaPRBackfires. For the uninitiated, the star was seen at the university just a few days before Chhapaak's release. This was seen by many as the 'PR gimmick' by the Chhapaak makers to promote the film in disguise. However, many also lauded the actress for taking a bold stand as well. When Deepika's film earned lesser than Ajay Devgn's Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior that released on the same day, she was trolled for the same. Coming back to the Lux controversy, it has to be seen whether the brand gives an official statement over the same or not.
