Deepika Padukone is always immaculately dressed. It has hardly happened that media has caught her posing wrongly or in an untoward fashion. But Times Of India rummaged through its archives to find out one picture that has Deepika showing off her cleavage slightly at the trailer launch of Chennai Express last year.
The leading daily tweeted the photo saying, “OMG! Deepika Padukone’s cleavage show”. That was enough to blow Deepika’s lid. She lashed out at the daily through twitter saying, “YES! I am a Woman. I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??” She further added, “”Supposedly India’s ‘LEADING’ newspaper and this is ‘NEWS’!!??,” and
“Don’t talk about Woman’s Empowerment when YOU don’t know how to RESPECT Women!
Deepika seems to be trending eversince both on Twitter. Bollywood celebrities have come out in support of her cause and lashed out at the daily.
Karan Johar: “Appalled….shocked and disgusted at the level of disrespect shown. Deepika or any women in the world cannot and should not stand for this!!”
Arjun Rampal: “I just read… about @deepikapadukone retort to cheap sensational journalism, well done girl”
Farhan Akhtar: My simple question to the media regarding the Deepika-Cleavage story is.. Can this messenger be shot??
Following the outrage, the daily promptly issued a cheeky statement on Twitter saying, “You look so great that we want to make sure everyone knew! :)”
Who do you side with?
