Indian Twitter users are engaging in fierce online debates after Deepika Padukone, one of India's most famous actresses, joined students protesting against recent moves by the Modi-led, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in front of the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) on Tuesday.
Actor @deepikapadukone meeting #AisheGhosh in #JNU. She's at ground zero despite knowing the backlash it will receive from RW goons who will attempt to boycott her film which releases in two days.
