Dont talk about Woman's Empowerment when YOU don't know how to RESPECT Women! (sic),” Deepika had posted.

It is the high camera angle not a low neckline. What is low is the standard of journalism. Downright SICK!!! @deepikapadukone

Entertainment 'news' has rarely ever treated women with much respect. I'm surprised by the surprise. For once some1 decided not to let it go

Brilliant strike @deepikapadukone. So fearless a message and truly inspiring coming from you as a role model to millions of women all over.

An actor has just as much right to react to an image of their body as anyone does. Fame doesn't veto your gender or your self-respect.
— Virr Das (@thevirdas) September 14, 2014
firmly with @deepikapadukone on this.
— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) September 14, 2014
If you are even remotely self righteous and want to do the right thing then SUPPORT @deepikapadukone. THIS WOMAN ROCKS.
