"Baffling": Twinkle Khanna Supports Deepika Padukone After Latter Is Trolled Over 'Koffee With Karan 8' Controversy
Twinkle Khanna has come out in support of Deepika Padukone, after the latter received backlash for her revelations about her personal life on 'Koffee With Karan 8'.
Actress Twinkle Khanna, who is also the wife of Akshay Kumar, has come out in support of Deepika Padukone, after the 'Piku' star received backlash for her revelations about her personal life on 'Koffee With Karan 8'. For the unversed, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh had graced the couch together in the season premiere of 'KWK 8', and it was there that the couple opened up on their marriage, and Deepika Padukone also said that she and Ranveer were allowed to see other people in the beginning of their relationship, but they kept coming back to each other.
In the latest entertainment news, Twinkle Khanna wrote a column for Times of India, and it was there, that she talked about the trolling Deepika Padukone was subjected to.
“The trolling she has received because of her admission is baffling. In fact, it has gone as far as students at Banaras Hindu University reportedly putting on a play where a girl plays Deepika and male students act as her past boyfriends,” Twinkle wrote.
"Wouldn’t you go to the store to figure out which one feels nice and bouncy, which has a comfortable backrest and which fabric doesn’t make your skin itch? But when it comes to the couch potato whom you have to snuggle against, you are expected to just pick one without testing out alternatives,” she wrote further.
In her column, Twinkle Khanna also talked about how Deepika Padukone managed to outrage “uncles, aunties, and an entire lot of India’s not-so-eligible bachelors” by talking about her personal life.
Twinkle Khanna also wrote that Deepika Padukone did not “swoon and fall at the feet of the first moustached suitor hanging around her” and instead she chose to date other men, “while also dating her future husband” which led to people calling her names.
For the unversed, during their appearance on the talk show, Deepika and Ranveer opened up on their arrangement they had in the initial stages of their relationship.
“I wanted to be single for a while because I had come from difficult relationships. I was going through a phase where I said ‘I just don’t want to be attached, don’t want to be committed’. And I had fun. And then he comes along, so I didn’t ‘commit, commit’, until he proposed to me. There was no commitment as such. Even if we were technically allowed to see other people, we would just keep coming back to each other," said Deepika.
Deepika Padukone has had a good 2023 as she delivered two blockbusters, ‘Pathaan’ and ‘Jawan’. Both the films made over Rs 1000 crore.
Deepika Padukone is now looking forward to her next big release, ‘Fighter’, co-starring Hrithik Roshan and Anil Kapoor. The film will be released in theatres on Republic Day 2024.
She will star as a female cop in Rohit Shetty's ‘Singham Again’. The first look of her as Shakti Shetty was launched recently on social media.
Deepika Padukone will also be seen along with Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan in ‘Kalki 2898 AD’.
