Recently, the Padmavaat star shot a promotional video asking a TikTok user to recreate three looks of herself and one of them is of Malti in her latest release Chhapaak.

Earlier this month, fans of Deepika Padukone were floating on air when the actress official became the next Bollywood celebrity making her debut on the video-sharing social media TikTok.

As Deepika joined this platform mainly to promote her film, the actress had met many other TikTok stars. Recently, the Padmavaat star shot a promotional video asking a TikTok user to recreate three looks of herself and one of them is of Malti in her latest release Chhapaak. The actress steps into an acid attack survivor’s shoes in this hard-hitting social movie.

The video showcases Deepika throwing a new challenge at the user that she wants to challenge her with three of her most favorite on-screen looks. To this, the user will recreate Deepika in three films, Piku, Om Shanti Om and Chhapaak.

However, shortly after that, the actress has invited the wrath of netizens and Deepika Padukone TikTok found itself at the center of controversies.

A Twitter user named Dr Smokiee (account: @SmokingSkills_) kicked off the criticism when he re-posted the Deepika Padukone TikTok video on his Twitter handle. He tweeted,

Then several comments saying Deepika making fun at acid attack survivors have been flooded on social media. One user said “Highly insensitive,” while another wrote, “Disgusting.” Check out:

2020 seemed not to treat Deepika so well as she had to face a backlash for the controversial visit to JNU. Her film Chhapaak also didn’t do wonders at the box office.
