Soon after visit, BJP supporters took it to the twitter and #boycottchhapaak started to trend. In the support of Deepika, People started new #IsupportDeepika.
"I feel proud to see that we aren't scared to express ourselves... I think the fact that we are thinking about the country and its future.... Whatever may be our point of view, it's nice to see," Deepika told NDTV India on Monday night.
Meghna, director of chhapaak, said she can feel the pain of the people even though she is not well versed with the issues. "Definitely there are thoughts. We live in the same society, so we will react. Unfortunately, we don't have full information as yet so making comments on the same is not our place. But there is pain, there is awareness. There is an uneasiness. I hope that a peaceful environment or equilibrium is restored. We don't know what's the solution or the way to go about it. Both people and situation are torn, hope it gets fixed soon," she said.
