Sita Ramayan aka Deepika Shekhlia recently attended a school reunion. The actress was seen wearing her ‘school uniform’ and was enjoying her time with her friends. However, many fans did not like the photos. They even saw a cup on Deepika’s hand and even asked what she was drinking. After facing the backlash, the actress decided to delete the photos. Now, I’ve opened up about it.
Speaking to ETimes, Deepika Shekhlia said, “I would never want to hurt my fans. I feel bad that I got trolled. I feel bad that I offended fans’ feelings. I realize that people see me as Sita and not Deepika. I realize that people were not happy (so I deleted the post). There is something Enough is happening in the world. Why add another problem?”
She added, “I’m not justifying what I did. I’m clearly a mistake on my part. I’m not trying to evade my bigger-than-life image and explain that main madness (I’m human). I wasn’t drinking. I’m not into alcohol. It was just an encounter. Small among old friends in a nostalgic mood.”
Deepika had posted pictures with her friends on Sunday. She wore her school uniform and described the photos as “back to school”. However, the look did not do well with netizens. A certain section of the fans, who still consider Deepika to be “Sita Ma”, were disappointed and unhappy. Netizens took to the comments section of Dipika’s post and argued that this look did not suit her. “Abka Khun Sa Avtar Hai…? Sorry, Dekh Kar Bilkul bhi Acha Nahi Laga… (What’s your avatar? Sorry, but I didn’t like it at all),” read one of the comments. Another wrote: “Aapko aise kpde nhi pehnne chaiye dipikaji hamne aapko devi ka drja diya hua h so (you shouldn’t wear such clothes, we have given you the status of a goddess)”. One social media user also dropped a crying emoji and asked “what, yeah, cry ha-min county, drink for rakhi hai?” After the backlash, Dipika deleted her Instagram post.
