Padukone did not give any statement while there and this step by her is being seen as related to the release of her film ‘Chhapaak’. She stayed in the campus for 10 minutes and left without addressing the people present there, after which ruckus has erupted.

People are seen boycotting her film ‘Chhapaak’ on social media and #boycottchhapaak is trending on Twitter. However, #standwithdeepika is also trending at the same time. 

On Monday, artistes Diya Mirza, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Swara Bhasker, Anubhav Sinha, Gouhar Khan and Vishal Bharadwaj participated in a protest in Mumbai. Meanwhile, several big Bollywood stars are yet to speak up on this matter.
