Twitter slams Deepika Padukone for her insensitive TikTok video
Deepika Padukone is once again in the headlines. The actress, who received mixed reactions from netizens over her JNU visit ahead of Chhapaak release, is receiving backlash over a promotional video she filmed with TikTok influencer. In the video, she throws a challenge to recreate three of her looks, including that of Malti in Chhapaak. In the film, she plays the role of an acid attack surviour. Deepika Padukone lists her three favourite looks from her films Om Shanti Om Piku and Chhapaak. In the video, the artist creates all three looks. I want to challenge Faby with three of my most favourite looks, Deepika tells the makeup artist. Someone posted the video on Twitter and the netizens slammed Deepika Padukone for calling Maltis acid attacked face as one of her favourite makeup looks. What I feel here is.. Deepika is considering maltis look beautiful and her favourite.. maybe she didnt know about how this video is going to end up like.. Yes its disgusting to creat a face like the survivors in your tiktok makeup videos.. Ps- pls correct me if Im wrong. https://t.co/oMYBjXHSVu https://t.co/oMYBjXHSVu ????

Its insensitive & ghastly. The movie wasnt about you & your make up. It was about a woman scarred for life.And victims like her,whose marks cant be wiped off,unlike your make up. You lost the plot,alas. https://t.co/9Zt8XEmSqI https://t.co/9Zt8XEmSqI Smita Barooah (@smitabarooah) https://twitter.com/smitabarooah/status/1218482611196059648?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw January 18, 2020 The problem with Deepika Padukone endorsing a makeup challenge on Chhapak is that she treated it as one of her looks and dismissed the entire trauma behind it. She proved that it was merely makeup for her & she clearly doesnt understand the depth of what survivors go through. x (@krownnist) https://twitter.com/krownnist/status/1218521565094006785?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw January 18, 2020 Im appalled at Deepika Padukones Tiktok challenge on the Chhapaak acid survivor look. It is like making a movie on the Holocaust and tattooing numbers on your hand as promotion.
