Deepika Padukone's visit to JNU Tuesday night to stand in solidarity with the students who were subjected to violence on Sunday has met with both applause and criticism. While many have dismissed it as a publicity stunt for her upcoming release, some members of the film fraternity have lauded the move, saying that they were proud of the actress.

Filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and Anubhav Sinha, Deepika's Chhapaak co-star Vikrant Massey, actresses Bhumi Pednekar, Sonakshi Sinha and Nimrat Kaur were among those who lauded Deepika Padukone's visit to JNU. Deepika, who was in Delhi to promote her film Chhapaak, due for release on January 10, visited the University and met the student union president Aishe Ghosh, who was beaten up in Sunday's attack. Photos and videos of Deepika standing in solidarity with the protesting students have gone viral ever since.

The visit led to Twitter being divided over Deepika's stance on the issue. #BoycottChhapak and #ISupportDeepika both began trending on Twitter.

Here are tweets from members of the film fraternity who spoke up in support of Deepika.




Besides retweeting those who spoke in support of Deepika, Anurag Kashyap also changed his Twitter profile picture to that of the actress meeting Aishe in JNU.




Actor Prakash Raj shared an artwork featuring Deepika's bold onscreen roles, and the bravery she's shown in real life.
