Alia Bhatt Defends Deepika Padukone Amid Online Criticism Over Pregnancy Belly

Celebrities Rally Around Deepika After She Faces Body-Shaming and Fake Pregnancy Accusations on Social Media

In a recent show of solidarity, actress Alia Bhatt has publicly supported Deepika Padukone, who is facing online trolling due to her pregnancy belly. The backlash began after Deepika revealed her baby bump during a recent outing in Mumbai, leading some social media users to falsely label her pregnancy as fake. While Deepika has remained silent on the issue, her peers have stepped up in her defense.

Deepika’s first public appearance with her baby bump occurred earlier this week when she accompanied her husband, actor Ranveer Singh, to vote in the fifth round of the Mumbai Lok Sabha Election 2024. Photos from their outing quickly went viral, attracting body-shaming comments from certain online communities.

Journalist Faye D’Souza took to social media to defend Deepika, writing, “Dear social media, Deepika Padukone stepped out to do her democratic duty and vote. She did not ask for your feedback on her body or her pregnancy. You have no right to comment on any aspect of her life. Stop it. Behave.”

The post garnered widespread support from several celebrities. Alia Bhatt promptly liked the post, signaling her agreement. Additionally, Alia’s mother Soni Razdan, and sisters Pooja and Shaheen Bhatt, also showed their support by liking the post. Actor Shruti Seth commented, “Luckily @deepikapadukone is too busy taking over the world to give a damn! She’s walking all over their damn opinions.” Actor Tina Datta echoed this sentiment, stating, “Exactly! People have lost it.”

The wave of celebrity support highlights the solidarity within the film industry, standing against online harassment and body-shaming.
