Several netizens compared her move to that of Deepika Padukone, who stood in solidarity with the students in Delhi.

Here’s how people reacted:

While speaking about CAA, Taapsee had told IANS, “I haven’t expressed my views on CAA because I haven’t studied about it. But the visuals which I saw in Jamia, I didn’t feel those were pleasant. I felt really sad when I saw the videos where students were talking about their plight. I feel something big has happened or something big is going to happen.”

‘Thappad’ is a story of Amrita (Taapsee Pannu) whose seemingly perfect life and relationship is shattered with a slap.
