Playing an acid attack survivor in her film 'Chhapaak', Deepika visited the temple to seek blessings for her film that was recently mired in a controversy with people calling for a boycott of the film after she came to stand in support of JNU students in New Delhi. She was in the capital city for the promotions of her film when she made a quick stop at the Jawaharlal Nehru University -- a campus that has been revolting against fee hike. The students were recently thrashed by masked goons while the Delhi police took no action against the perpetrators. Deepika's move to go to the JNU was thus highly criticised while one section of the society also applauded her for the stand.
