Bollywood sensations Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor were snapped outside director Luv Ranjan’s office recently and has upset fans on social media.
While reports about the two coming together for a film have left many excited, Twitter has now been set ablaze by fans who do not want the Padmaavat star to work with Ranjan after torrid #MeToo allegations were made against him, reported Pinkvilla.
Disturbed by the possibility, people have taken to the social media platform to start a new hashtag trend. #NotMyDeepika has been shared, with some even highlighting how Padukone will be losing thousands of fans if she says yes to the film.
“Deepika Padukone has got an amazing fan base, all so wise. They are really not like other celebrity fans. They like and support her but not blindly and that’s how fans are supposed to be,” one user commented.
Another wrote, “Are you even aware of how you are gonna promote someone who has sexually harassed other women by working in his film? #NotMyDeepika”
Others have expressed their hurt that the actor is considering working with the director after a woman accused him of indecent behaviour in 2010 on the set of Pyaar Ka Punchnama.
“You are hurting me. I’ve had so much pride about you always doing the right thing, standing for what’s right, having a backbone of steel. Now what? How did you make it ok for you to meet someone like that?,” a Twitter user wrote.
On the work front, Padukone wrapped up the schedule of her upcoming film Chhapaak recently, post which, she moved on to shoot for her film with her husband, ’83.
