Vivek had earlier tweeted about Deepika Padukone’s visit to the Jawaharlal Nehru University last month. The actor had visited JNU to show her solidarity with the students who were attacked by a masked mob. He had written on Twitter, “I am told that it was suggested to #DeepikaPadukone to go and stand next to #Nirbhaya’s parents for a photo op. But last minute she changed her plan because #Nirbahaya wasn’t trending whereas #JNU was. This is how it works, my dear friends.”

The story is based on Vivek Ranjan Agnihotri and Sayani Gupta’s tweets.
