Before turning heads with her Barbie doll look at the Met Gala Monday night, Deepika Padukone posted a funny selfie on Instagram.

She termed the annual ball 'absolutely ridiculous,' clothes-wise.
In another news, Bollywood star Akshay Kumar thanked Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju for supporting him amid a row over his citizenship. Responding to Rijiju's support on Twitter, Akshay committed himself to the cause of the government-led fund-raising initiative Bharat Ke Veer.

When attending the Met Gala, Deepika Padukone was dressed in a metallic pink lurex jacquard gown, designed to make her look like Barbie. While a lot of celebs expressed their sympathies for Deepika, for the hard life that she lives in the limelight, actor Ishan Khatter decided to take a funny route. He called Deepika 'Chewbacca' for a selfie that she posted while getting ready for the event.
The annual Met Gala event had people gushing over the bold and extremely over-the-top fashion choices that celebrities put on display on the event's pink carpet, and then later at the exclusive after party. Actress and host Mandira Bedi wrote on Twitter, "People are oooohing and aaaahing all day, over some women who are looking absolutely ridiculous in the clothes they are wearing. I’m sorry to say I don’t get this #Metgala thing. Follow the theme, yes, but don’t look absurd for God’s sake."
