Deepika Padukone's Breasts and TOI

While Deepika Padukone was basking compliments for her latest movie Finding Fanny, soon she was raging with anger against India’s so called leading newspaper, The Times Of India.Reasons best known to TOI and In fact Everyone Now.This is the state of leading News Papers in India these days,This is more than pathetic.At one place these leading newspapers and portals talk about women empowerment and then at the same place they thrive to get their audience via cheap publicity and sleazy pictures.For Long noone was taking a stand against these so called Leading Newspapers but what Deepika has done is worth an applause.

This is how it all started.Deepika was fumed over the cheap shot which TOI took at her.This is what she tweeted.

“Supposedly India’s ‘LEADING’ newspaper and this is ‘NEWS’!!??”

“Yes! I am a Woman. I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??”

But then There came the reply , Obviously the second tweet did more damage than good which you can see why in the belwo picture , But Thankfully several Bollywood celebrities came forward in their support to Deepika Padukone including Karan Johar, Priyanka Chopra, Dia Mirza and Arjun Kapoor.Interestingly Ex Bf Sid mallaya came forward and tweeted
@sidmallya: And the @TimesofIndia response may just have to go down as one of the most idiotic, shambollic and stupid responses of all time. Bravo

Well We all can hope now that TOI learns from its mistakes and learns to respect women in true sense.My Point is that Yes she Might be over reacting just for the sake of film promotions just like SRK does when ever his movies is to release.But She has got some Valid point and We all should at-least support her in her stand against some Cheap "News".

Here is the flip side.This is what TOI has to say today :'We don’t go into a frenzy when cameras capture SRK’s and Hrithik’s 6-pack abs' Here :Everything in life is about perspective, and while you are governed by yours, you must keep an open mind about the flipside of the coin. As long as there is no violence or unlawful methods being adopted, everyone is entitled to their point of view. Even if it's top angle!


  1. TOI simply needed something to spam TL on twitter but they picked up the wrong thing to tweet about. LOL.I am actually finding this whole thing hilarious.

    1. This actually is ,
      They got what they want ,Any Publicity good Publicity

  2. Media a double edge sword and these days its just write anything that sells, cheap.

  3. Have you heard the story of Amanda Palmer and Daily Mail? Search it on Google. It's very big than this :)

  4. I am a TOI reader and seriously the entertainment part of TOI needs total Management change. It takes down the whole image of the brand. Deepika has done the right thing

  5. Any stand taken by a celebrity can make (or break) a difference in society.. Deepika has certainly made a valid point as TOI is highest selling national daily.. It needs to act more responsibly..

  6. well this step had to be taken long back.

  7. Ouchhh......
    Btw I heard SRK has built a 10-pack this time! :-/
