Smriti Irani receives flak from Twitterati after she takes a dig at Deepika Padukone
A video has surfaced online where Union minister Smriti Irani reacted to Deepika Padukone visit at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus. On Tuesday, Deepika joined the protest with the students and teachers who were brutally attacked by the masked goons. Soon, #BoycottChhapaak started trending on social media. Now, Smriti Irani who was present at an event in Chennai said that Deepika had ‘made her political affiliation known in 2011 that she supports the Congress party’.
In the video, she was saying, “I think that anybody who has read the news knew where you are going to stand… knew that you are standing with people who celebrate every time a CRPF jawan is killed. I can’t deny her that right that she will stand next to people who will beat up other girls who don’t see eye-to-eye ideologically in private parts. That’s her freedom.”
Post this video was posted on Twitter, the minister faced flak for her remark.

Deepika’s visit divided social media into two parts. While one section lauded her, some bashed her calling it a publicity stunt for her movie.
