Smriti Irani On Deepika Padukone's JNU Visit, ‘You're Standing With People Who Want Destruction Of India’- Video
Deepika Padukone on Tuesday stood in solidarity with the students at JNU, Delhi. But her appearance at the university divided the nation into two. While a few applauded the actress for her decision of supporting the JNU students, others didn't hail her presence. Padukone has been facing the wrath of social media, the hashtag #BoycottChhapaak remained a top trend on Twitter for some time. Some even called her move a promotional stunt for her upcoming film Chhapaak.

Now Union Minister and former TV actress Smriti Irani has reacted to Deepika Padukone’s visit at the JNU campus in support of protesting students. Speaking at an event in Chennai on Thursday, “I would rather know what her political affiliation is than not know. I think that anybody who has read the news knew where you are going to stand... knew that you are standing with people who wanted the destruction of India… knew that they are standing with people who celebrate every time a CRPF jawan is killed.” (ALSO READ: Former JNU President Kanhaiya Kumar Says, 'Deepika Padukone Is Not The VC Of This University'- WATCH VIDEO)
She further added, “I can’t deny her that right that she will stand next to people who will beat up other girls who don’t see eye-to-eye ideologically in private parts. That’s her freedom. She made her political affiliation known in 2011 that she supports the Congress party. It’s her right (to) stand next to people who say Bharat tere tukde honge.”

Well, let’s wait and watch would Deepika react to it.
