Deepika Padukone’s Cleavage Causes Storm


Deepika Padukone’s Cleavage Causes Storm


I couldn’t think of any better title because when we think that we have seen the height, we get a new high in terms of ridiculousness. Objectifying women is a thing that is expected from small publications and other media channels to grab more eyeballs and readership. One never expects such a thing from respected media houses. But one of the oldest newspapers in India The Times of India has showed us that treating a woman as a sex object is not the prerogative of lesser-known media houses.

Times of India gave us a ridiculous entertainment ‘news’ when it tweeted a video titled ‘OMG: Deepika Padukone‘s Cleavage Show!’

The title itself has us getting furious and feeling meh. What does it suppose to mean? Does it mean that- see Deepika has got breasts? Seriously??



This newspaper who always supports the rights of public and is considered to have a modern outlook has finally showed us what lies in its heart of hearts. I read TOI daily and feel good that they bolster women and other marginalized issues. But what is this TOI?

They decided to attract more people by going really cheap. But Deepika is not the girl who will take such s**t. She commented on the piece and also tweeted “YES!I am a Woman.I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??”

This evoked humongous response from twitteratti. Not only girls but men also supported Deepika and rubbished TOI. From Nimrat Kaur, Priyanka Chopra and Huma Qureshi to Ayushamann Khurrana and Karan Johar everybody ridiculed the newspaper. Shoojit Sircar rightly called it ‘eve-teasing of a different kind.”

Times of India had to respond after so many lashbacks but instead of an apology they tweeted- “It’s a compliment! U look so great that we want to make sure everyone knew! :)” Now this is pure shamelessness. What a way of complimenting a lady!

This is completely unacceptable and TOI should apologise to Deepika. It is the least that the newspaper can do to recover their image. This incident should also teach them and others a lesson that a woman is not a public property. Whatever she decides to wear is her choice. Clothes are not an excuse for rape, eve-teasing and such derogatory remarks.

What do you have to say about this issue?

  1. Seriously TOI has crossed The limits.. And their statement which is apparently a ‘clarification’ is more ridiculous. Deepika must take them to court. Great to see The awareness for such issues on WiseShe… Kudos to our team!!!!:yes:

  2. This makes me deeply sad. I am a Media student, I aspire to become a journalist one day but this yellow journalism shakes my faith in the media 🙁

  3. TOI just lost its sense of responsibility and tried something pathetic… totally a fan of Deepika’s response…
    Staying mum and ignoring is not the rite solution and i am glad to see that famous faces of india like parineeti, priyanka and now deepika who is slamming such shit… (Y)

  4. More respect for Deepika now 🙂 And another outstanding post from u Maitri..
    But this is not new.. If you check the online portal, they have regular news on such ridiculous happenings on various celebs.. It is now in the news due to Deepika revolting back.. But this has been going on for years..

  5. Actually this is not the first time, they are out with such ridiculous posts and videos, countless videos are out like this on times of india, just matter is this time someone gave a befitting reply to their videos and people supported her! they have posted so many vidoes , tht they have kind of turned shameless, they have stooped really low.they know in order to garner more attention they will have to post and write few ridiculous stuff! I was shocked seeing a post on lady gagas piercing in her private part, i mean how shameless of those guys to post those pics !

  6. I agree with Tarun, I do not consider TOI a newspaper at all, they are a ”masala page 3” kind of thing. This is not new for them at all,going on for years now that they put such ”masala” news however Deepika gave a nice reply to them which is commendable

  7. Totally agree! I always refer to TOI as a masala paper too. My sis used to write for them but quit long back. I can’t believe d reply they gave!!! 😯 :quiet: :mouthshut:
