NEW DELHI: Actress Deepika Padukone received support from her colleagues in Bollywood for taking part in the protests in Jawaharlal Nehru University.

She visited the group of JNU students who were attacked by a violent mob including the president of the students’ union Aishe Ghosh whose images went viral on social media.

Her visit to JNU received a polarised reaction where the anti-Citizenship Amendment Act group supported her while the right-wing called for a boycott of her upcoming film 'Chhapaak'.

Bollywood celebrities such as Anubhav Sinha, Anurag Kashyap, Swara Bhakar, etc expressed support to her.

Anurag Kashyap changed his profile picture to Deepika's where she stood before the JNU president Aishe who was brutally attacked.

Her colleagues said that her move was courageous because stakes were higher for her as the producer of 'Chhapaak'.

'Chhapaak' is based on the life and struggles of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal. Deepika plays Malti, who was attacked with acid by a man whose advances she rejected.
