    Amid criticism over top Bollywood celebrities maintaining silence over the violence in JNU, Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone joined the protesting students at the JNU’s Sabarmati hostel.

    According to reports, Deepika visited JNU around 7:45 pm and stayed on campus for about 10 minutes. The actor left without saying anything, however, she was photographed meeting JNU Student’s Union president Aishe Ghosh, who was injured in the violence that took place at the university on Sunday.

    Her visit to the JNU campus has received both criticism and appreciation on social media with some calling up for a “boycott” of her films and others appreciating the actor for her “bold” move. While at one end, #boycottchhapaak emerged as the top trend in India on Tuesday, the hashtag #ISupportDeepika was trending as well with several users tweeting in the actor’s support.

    BJP leader Tajinder Singh Bagga tweeted asking if people should boycott her film for supporting the ‘Tukde Tukde Gang and Afzal Gang’.

    Some have termed Padukone’s visit to the JNU as a stunt to promote her film Chhapaak, which is releasing this Friday.

    Several other users have come in Padukone’s support for showing up at the protest against the violence in JNU.

    Padukone is among the few top Bollywood celebrities who have offered their support to the ongoing students’ protests. On Monday night, a slew of Bollywood celebrities such as directors Vishal Bhardwaj, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar and actors Taapsee Pannu and Richa Chadha had turned up at Carter Road in Mumbai in solidarity with those protesting against the violence at the JNU.
