About a year or so ago, protests had erupted across the country offending, defending, debating Padmaavat, a movie featuring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The incident has been brought to life again by the Twitterverse as Ranveer Singh’s selfie with Prime Minister Modi goes viral.
imagine hugging a man whose chamchas threatened to behead your wife because you have absolutely no spine.
the absolute state of indian hip hop when this wimp is supposed to embody its spirit in all it’s guts and fearlessness. https://t.co/iW8gzgoRFC

When your wife gets death threats by the same hindu right wing fanatics who Modi empowered but you’re @RanveerOfficial and what is shame, what is having a spine or what is basic human decency even lol.

While hugging, did u ask him What he did for @deepikapadukone ‘your wife’ when she was being abused and threatened with murder by his goons? If she had been hurt back then, would u still be hugging him? It’s disgraceful @RanveerOfficial#ModiForBollywood #Modi #DeepikaPadukone https://t.co/YxdfWvfwD6
