Hate Over Deepika Padukone’s Addition To The Oscars

The Bollywood star heroine Deepika Padukone has been chosen as one of the presenters at the upcoming 95th Academy Awards. She will be joining other presenters like Riz Ahmed, Emily Blunt, Glenn Close, Dwayne Johnson, Troy Kotsur, Jennifer Connelly, Samuel L. Jackson, Zoe Saldana, Donnie Yen, Melissa McCarthy, Jonathan Majors, and Questlove.

This is surely a significant achievement not only for Deepika but also for India as she is the only Indian celebrity who has been selected as a presenter for the Oscars. However, some people have been spreading hate towards her selection, particularly those from the right-wing who have had an agenda against her since she visited the injured students at JNU.

While they were celebrating the recognition and success of the Hindu- centric film RRR at the Oscars, their happiness was short-lived after Deepika’s name was announced.

Director of the movie SS Rajamouli recently silenced people who tried to associate his success with a particular religion by stating that his priority is his country, not any religion. If RRR is making India proud, Deepika is also making the country proud in her own way.

Therefore, we should celebrate Deepika Padukone’s accomplishments as much as we celebrate RRR’s international success. It would be a moment of pride for every Indian to witness Rajamouli, NTR, Ram Charan, and Deepika Padukone stealing the limelight at the Oscars 2023. The awards ceremony will be held on March 12 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
