After Deepika's visit to the campus on Tuesday evening, actress Sonakshi Sinha tweeted on Wednesday: "No matter which political party you support, do you support violence? Don't visuals of bleeding students and teachers shake you up? We can't sit on the fence any longer. Kudos to @deepikapadukone for showing up, & all those who spoke for speaking up. This is not the time to stay quiet."
Bhumi Pednekar tweeted her support: "More power to you @deepikapadukone. Can't wait to watch #Chappak tonight. United we stand."
Director Prakash Raj posted a picture of Deepika in different costumes in her past movies and tweeted: "Thank you @deepikapadukone... thank you for being a true INDIAN..."
Actress Konkona Sensharma posted a love emoji and wrote: "Respect!"
Director-producer and screenwriter Vikramaditya Motwane said: "Deepika's stand is going to make a lot of young people question their parents, their peers and their government. Hopefully, they'll go out and educate themselves. And not parrot everything authority tells them.
"She's a true hero."
Actress Nimrat Kaur gushed: "Leading from the front, the tallest #DeepikaPadukone."
Producer-director Nikkhil Advani tweeted: "As producer today @deepikapadukone would've been standing in the preview theatres in Mumbai waiting to hear praise being showered on her maiden production. She, instead, chose to stand in solidarity with #JNUstudents knowing fully well the ramifications of her actions. #RESPECT."
Bollywood director Anubhav Sinha wrote: "I have been saying so. Women are stronger beings. RESPECT @deepikapadukone."
Actress Sayani Gupta praised Deepika: "Thank you @deepikapadukone for giving this movement a mainstream narrative. For using your position to choose the correct path. It always comes to the women and yes, they do deliver! Big love sister! #WeAreWithJNU #noplaceforfascism."
