Bollywood actress, Deepika Padukone, who is in Delhi to promote her upcoming film Chhapaak was clicked at the protests at JNU. With an aim to show solidarity with the students and teachers, DP's this act is a brave step indeed. And not just us, but even Twitterati are lauding her for showing up for something which matters. Earlier in an interview when the actress was asked about the ongoing mayhem she said that it's great to see so many people come out and unite for a cause. In one of the pictures which surfaced online, she was seen alongside injured JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh.

Well, a big step taken by a biggie in the industry led to some fruitful reactions too. And in no time, the micro-blogging site showered praises on the actress for showing up and giving a hint that she is against the current political scenario in the nation. For the unversed, masked goons had entered the JNU campus and attacked the students and faculty members. Coming back to Deepika, here are a few Twitter reactions where she is lauded for her bravery.

All those making snide remarks on @deepikapadukone’s visit to JNU as a movie promotion exercise, well, she could have chosen SRCC, Amity or Nirma University if it was only to promote a film. The fact that she CHOSE to visit JNU is a brave choice given the times we live in.

At the time when the violent incident took place, several Bollywood personalities came together in Mumbai for a protest against JNU violence. Indeed, now we can say that Bollywood does have a spine. Stay tuned!
