Renowned actor-turned-author Twinkle Khanna came to the defense of Deepika Padukone, who faced online criticism for her candid remarks on Koffee With Karan. Khanna expressed bewilderment at the backlash, emphasizing that Deepika’s admission shouldn’t be a cause for trolling.
Deepika’s revelation on the talk show, where she disclosed not succumbing to the first suitor but instead dating others along with her eventual husband, stirred controversy. Twinkle Khanna eloquently compared this rational approach to choosing a life partner to buying a couch, advocating for making informed choices rather than settling without exploration.
Khanna highlighted the absurdity of societal expectations, stating, “When it comes to the couch potato whom you have to snuggle against, you are expected to just pick one without testing out alternatives.”
Interestingly, the trolling extended beyond the digital realm, reaching the stage of Banaras Hindu University, where students reportedly performed a play featuring a girl portraying Deepika and male students acting as her past boyfriends.
Deepika, on Koffee With Karan, shared insights into her relationship with Ranveer Singh, emphasizing a period of being single after challenging experiences in previous relationships. She clarified that their commitment grew organically, with no strict rules despite technically being allowed to see other people.
