Deepika Padukone may not have said much on social media when it comes to the Anti-CAA protests but she made a strong statement on Tuesday, January 7 after she visited JNU to show her solidarity with the students who were recently attacked at the university hostel. The actress was in Delhi for the promotions of her upcoming film Chhapaak since the past two days and on Tuesday visited the JNU protests. While this move of the actress is being lauded on social media by many including actress Swara Bhasker, a BJP leader has now asked people to boycott her films stating that she's in support of the "Tukde Tukde gang". BJP leader Tajinder Pal Singh Bagga who is the spokesperson for Delhi Unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party took to Twitter to react to Deepika's JNU visit.
