Deepika Padukone made her debut on TikTok in January this year to promote her movie ‘Chhapaak’. Since joining, she has shared videos where she is seen taking challenges that are very much popular on the video platform.

As she had made the debut specially to promote her movie, Deepika had met many TikTok stars. For one of her promotional videos, she was seen discussing her top three favourite looks with a TikTok user. In the video, Deepika was telling the user that she will be challenging her with three of her most favourite looks. The user recreates Deepika’s ‘Om Shanti Om’, ‘Piku‘ and ‘Chaapaak’ looks. In ‘Chaapaak’, Deepika played acid-attack survivor Malti.

The video was shared by @SmokingSkills with the caption, “And just when we thought that @deepikapadukone couldn’t mock Lakshmi anymore through her PR stunts in JNU she comes up with tick tok challenge on acid attack victims. Gross.”

A section of netizens fell that Deepika made fun of acid attack survivors and they slammed her on Twitter. Some called it “Highly insensitive”, while one user wrote, “Disgusting”.

Have a look at some of the trolls.

This year started with a bad note for Deepika as she faced backlash for her visit to JNU, Delhi recently. Many called it a publicity stunt for the promotion of her movie.
