Stirring the hornet's nest, the whole issue of heroine Deepika Padukone hitting out at a leading newspaper that wrote about her 'cleavage' shows in public took a new turn on Friday. As noted critics have blasted the actress for 'objectifying' woman as sex-objects on silver screen and then hitting out at media houses that objectified her curvaceous body, Deepika has made another comment, only to face further embarrassment from media house.
On last Friday Deepika posted on her FB page, "A character may demand that I be clothed from head to toe or be completely naked, and it will be my choice as an actor whether or not I take either. Understand that this is a ROLE and not REAL, and it is my job to portray whatever character I choose to play convincingly"
Reacting on this, the media house questioned about the hypocrisy she is resorting too. "Deepika, you've flaunted your cleavage in 'real' life most of times at events, magazine shoots and dancing on stage. What 'role' do you play there?", the newspaper questioned. Accepting that the headline of their 'cleavage' article should have been better, "World of online is different from newspaper. Sensational headlines are far from uncommon", they defended.
Also Deepika has asked that if these media houses zoom onto a man's crotch even while drooling over a hero's 8 pack abs. Pat came the reply from media house, 'Deepika, we're also not zooming on woman's vagina and nipples, and if there is any we take utmost care to pixelate them before publishing'. The media house finally concluded that Deepika is making perfect publicity out of this, as her film is nearing release. Her 'Happy New Year' featuring Shahrukh will hit screens on October 24.
