'Insensitive and ghastly!' Twitter slams Deepika Padukone for converting her acid attack look from 'Chhapaak' into a TikTok challenge


It seems the turbulent time for Deepika Padukone hasn't come to an end. The actress, who has been facing severe backlash for visiting Jawarharlal Nehru University a couple of days before her film Chhapaak's release, has fallen into a social media trouble once again. Well, yes. Deepika, who made her debut on the social networking platform TikTok, was slammed by users for asking a makeup artist to recreate her 'Chhapaak look'.

It happened so, that Deepika while interacting with a makeup artist, whose handle goes by the username of @faby_makeupartist, asked the latter to recreate her film's looks. The 34-year-old actress named Om Shanti Om, Piku and Chhapaak. Calling the acid attack look as 'Chhapaak look', little did Deepika know that it could stir up controversy yet again. Soon after, Twitter users slammed her for mocking acid attack survivors by making the character look a TikTok challenge. One user reprimanded her for mocking Laxmi Agarwal, on whom Chhapaak is based on while the other called the challenge 'below the belt'.

Schooling Deepika for the video, certain Twitter users called her insensitive and ghastly while a few stated that it was the worst way of promotion.

Deepika landed into troubled waters after her sudden visit to JNU before Chhapaak's release. Moments later, chants of Boycott Chhapaak ruled social media. Reportedly, as a result of a public outcry, the actress became a subject of hatred. The film was directed by Meghna Gulzar and released on January 10, 2020. It revolved around an acid attack survivor who fought all odds for justice and awareness.
