A security personnel strictly followed protocol by asking Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone for her identity proof at the entry point of the airport here.
In a video doing the rounds on social media, Deepika was seen entering the airport, and an airport security staff member called out to her asking for an ID.
On realising that the security personnel was asking for her ID, Deepika, dressed in an all-black outfit, turned back and politely asked: "Chahiye (do you want it)?" Then she immediately took out her ID proof from her bag and showed it to the security personnel.
Several social media users came out in support of Deepika's positive attitude. "I like how she was ready to show her ID. Respect," wrote one user on Instagram, whole another commented: "Well done both. The security personnel and Ms. Padukone.
A social media user wrote, "I like how she was ready to show her ID. Respect" while another commented, "Duty is duty". Comments like "Great! Rules are rules" and "Well done to both the security personnel and Ms Padukone" began to flood in on the post.
Amidst praise for Deepika and the security guard, a few users felt that Deepika should have shown her ID even before he asked for it. A user commented, "She was going without showing the I’d .showing I’d is mandatory as per the rule.normal person can’t even cross the guard without showing the I’d(sic)" while another user penned a long caption criticising Deepika's act of confirming if the guard needs her ID.
The comment read as, "Even at the beginning he was asking her for the id but seems she didn't listen as she was walking away. He had to ask again for the id even then she has the audacity to ask, i.d chahiye? Of course chahiye. She may be a vvip or even God or queen for her fans but the rules are equal for everyone, like all other celebrities she should have showed her id even before anyone asked her to do so."
The actress, who has wrapped up shooting for Meghna Gulzar's "Chhapaak", will be seen sharing screen space with her husband Ranveer Singh in "'83" for the first time after their wedding.
