KARACHI: The Internet was ablaze Sunday evening when Bollywood starlet Deepika Padukone posted a reply on Twitter about what The Times of India’s entertainment section tweeted a video of Padukone with the caption, “OMG! Deepika Padukone’s cleavage show!”

Various Bollywood celebrities then took to Twitter to support the 28-year-old actor and #IStandWithDeepikaPadukone started trending on the social media website.

This controversy comes after Deepika’s latest film release Finding Fanny, which hit theatres on Friday.

    Price of being a star may be. You live by the sword you die by it. Having said that, TOI should have maintained its level.

    Modi has almost starved Indian media of breaking news. This is why we see this type of stuff in India media these days. Print media has almost become irrelevant and now is the turn of 24×7 news traders. Serious viewers are not watching news on TV any more. Internet is the medium where one can get more authentic stuff. Times of India (both print and electronic) has lost its credibility.

    Before anybody starts saying anything against her, please think: Is she a Muslim? No. Does she follow our rules? No.

    How can anybody say something against one Indian when this ‘ cleavage show ‘ is shown way more in Hollywood.

    Every human has a soul inside of them, and what actually makes up a person is their character, their personality, their generosity and their kindness. Islam says to women to not to expose yourself so that you can avoid evil looks from men. Has Deepika been in danger in a situation like this? No

    You do not need to cover yourself to be protected. She is being herself. Let her be. It is none of our business. She is a woman. She has those specific body parts. It’s her choice what she wants to do with them. As long as you have good intentions, you are and will be respected.

    Is this first time TOI posted something like this? Deepika, It’s publicity stunt and we know that.

    Deepika is one of the top stars in Bollywood. Unclear ehy she is described as starlet – a term reserved for aspiring stars?

    They may have written such stuff about someone else who stayed quiet. Does not mean Deepika should also keep quiet.

    THis video is a very old video. To dig it out and tweet it now is a cheap shot.
