In a show of solidarity, actor Shahid Kapoor has come to the defense of Deepika Padukone against allegations suggesting she has been typecast in her roles. The Mirzya star took to social media to address a report claiming that Padukone, known for her versatility, was being pigeonholed with her recent film choices.

Dismissing these claims, Shahid Kapoor took to Twitter to express his support for Deepika and her film choices. He vehemently defended her, stating, “Deepika‘s performance in Gehraiyaan is one of the best performances of recent times by any actress…”
Kapoor not only praised DP‘s acting prowess but also demanded that she be given the respect she deserves. In a resolute stand, he emphasized, “she’s incredible.. has achieved a lot .. some respect.”
Deepika‘s recent successes at the box office are undeniable. In 2023, both her films Pathaan and Jawan crossed the Rs 1000 crore mark, and her January 2024 release Fighter is currently performing remarkably in theaters, surpassing Rs 140 crore domestically and $30 million internationally.
The star’s impressive streak is set to continue with her highly anticipated film Kalki 2898 AD, slated for release in May. This sci-fi flick will mark her first collaboration with Prabhas.
Deepika‘s latest Bollywood looks have also been making waves, showcasing her fashion versatility. From her stunning appearance at the Cannes Film Festival to her elegant red carpet looks, she continues to captivate audiences with her style.
Amidst all the buzz surrounding her upcoming projects and fashion statements, Deepika remains grounded and focused on her craft. Her dedication and passion for acting shine through in every role she takes on, leaving an indelible mark on the Indian film industry.
