You already know everything about the Deepika Padukone and TOI controversy – the actress first spoke out against the newspaper on Twitter for doing an online piece on her “cleavage show.” She received much celebrity support for this – including from Ranveer Singh – and went on to post an inspiring open letter on her Facebook page. A few days later, she received a response that, at best, was inadequate at addressing the real point. After that response, there’s not been much said by celebrities; however, when reporters caught up with Ranveer Singh recently, he was asked to share his thoughts about the whole matter. Here’s what he said:

I think, on the first day itself, I established my opinion on Twitter. I think she put in her final word a few days before. And I think that’s that. People should now focus on her upcoming films, which are great. Happy New Year, which I’m excited for – Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan coming together end. She has an incredible line-up; people should focus on her films as well.

In case you were wondering, his earlier tweet read, “@deepikapadukone way to let ’em know! #LikeABoss @TOIEntertain TUM se yeh ummeed nahi thi #SMH #owned”

(Interestingly, the actor had initially tweeted calling them ‘pigs’ but seems to have immediately reconsidered and deleted that tweet.)

As of now, it doesn’t look like Ranveer is interested in saying anything more on the subject. He did share a lot more details with us about everything under the sun – his upcoming films, his relationship status, even when he lost his virginity – so stay tuned for all those details!
