In a recent development, Supriya Shrinate of the Congress party has adopted a strong position against those on social media who have been persistently harassing Bollywood starlet Deepika Padukone for her honest comments on open partnerships. ‘Koffee With Karan‘ Season 8 premiered, including Deepika and her spouse, Ranveer Singh. The pair explored the complexities of their relationship on the programme, bringing attention to the difficult time when Deepika struggled with anxiety and depression.
The statements made by Deepika throughout the programme have received a lot of attention. She was quite open about the fact that she wasn’t dedicated to Ranveer Singh just at the beginning of their relationship. In her own words, “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, 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.”
On the other hand, Deepika Padukone has experienced a barrage of internet harassment since appearing on the programme. Her social media accounts have been overrun by derogatory remarks, memes, and efforts at character assassination from her detractors. It is quite depressing to see how a successful woman like Deepika has come to be the object of unjustified criticism.
Prominent Congresswoman Supriya Shrinate has shown her support for Deepika. Her praise for the actress as a “super achiever” included her candour about her struggles with mental health. Supriya thinks that Deepika’s candour encourages others to face their own inner issues. She also said how Ranveer Singh helped Deepika through difficult circumstances, proving that even successful men can assist their lovers in times of need.
Congress Leader Speaks Out Against The Trolling Of Deepika Padukone
Supriya Shrinate questioned society’s tendency to avoid the truth and its incapacity to deal with basic human emotions. A worrying element of the digital era is the frequency of online trolling and the spread of hatred and judgement. It is puzzling that individuals seem to lean towards negativity in a society that values sincerity.
Renowned director and TV personality Karan Johar also spoke out against the hate speech aimed at Deepika Padukone. He voiced his distaste for trolling during an Instagram live session. Johar asked everyone to stop being negative and emphasised that people’s success or failure is not influenced by hate speech on the internet. This is an important reminder that trolling is harmful to one’s personal well-being in addition to being ineffective.
Deepika Padukone’s open relationship words have caused controversy, which emphasises the need for a more understanding and compassionate digital culture. It is important to keep in mind that celebrities have personal adventures and challenges just like everyone else. It is better to promote open dialogue on these subjects than to respond with hostility and condemnation.
What have we become?
