For the last two days, #NotMyDeepika was trending on social media because she agreed to work with #MeToo accused Luv Ranjan
Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone is the top actress of this generation. During the #MeToo controversy, the actress said that she would never work with someone who has been accused of sexual harassment.
However, a few weeks ago, Deepika was spotted at Luv Ranjan's residence which gave hints that she might work with the #MeToo accused. Now, reports are out that Deepika will now work with Luv Ranjan's next with former boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor.
Not long ago, in an interview with popular magazine Vogue, Deepika was asked if she would work with someone accused of sexual harassment, Deepika had said, "No! I would not."
A source close to the actress told BollywoodHungama, "Deepika is working on Luv Ranjan's next but everybody wants to keep it under wraps till the whole issue about Me Too dies down completely. Deepika had signed the movie much earlier this year and had started discussions regarding the script with Luv. In July, she and Ranbir were even spotted coming out of the filmmaker's office but Deepika's fans took offence to that and #NotMyDeepika started trending online. Many felt on social media that given her strong stance against sexual harassment, she shouldn't do the movie and want her to rethink her choice.
Since the news came out, Deepika's fans started questioning about her decision and have asked answers as to why she lied about it, eventually calling her “hypocrite”.
On Deepika Padukone's work front, she will be seen in Meghna Gulzar's Chapaak in January 2020. She has also turned co-producer with the film. Apart from this, she would also be seen in Kabir Khan's '83 portraying the role of Romi Bhatia - Kapil Dev's wife.
