She was there just to promote her film “Chhapaak” which was about to release that time. But this stunt got backfired and many people were hurt by this stand of actress. They called it a mare cheap publicity stunt and urged to boycott her movie.
This outrage later resulted in low box office collection of her movie. After few months a rumour of “paying 5 crore rupees to Deepika just to Visit JNU” were doing the rounds on social media. But no one can guarantee authenticity of this statement. It just came and got washed away.

But everything shattered when he was found hanging in his room on 14th of June. People couldn’t believe that it could also happen.
Such a talented, and brilliant actor just committed suicide! Many of the people called told he was depressed hence he took that decision. But later it was alleged not a suicide case but a murder!

This statement didn’t go well with CarryMinati, AKA Ajey Nagar and he made a roasting video of the prior topic which got love and hate at the same time. Few people took it as an offence and after few days his video was deleted from YouTube for violating guidelines of YouTube community.
This hullabaloo kept going for few months, later Government of India banned TIKTOK as it was a Chinese company. With this whole disputes got settled.
