'I am a woman and have cleavage' says Deepika Padukone

Finding Fanny actress Deepika Padukone lashed out at India’s leading newspaper website over a story on her 'cleavage show'. The website published a news with a picture of Deepika taken from an awkward angle. Padukone posted a screenshot of the offending photo which was captioned in the 'news' story as "OMG: Deepika Padukone's cleavage show".

Irate Deepika on Sunday took to micro-blogging site Twitter and posted, "@deepikapadukone: Supposedly India's 'LEADING' newspaper and this is 'NEWS'!!??"

Later she posted,"@deepikapadukone: YES!I am a Woman.I have breasts AND a cleavage! You got a problem!!??"

The actresses further wrote, "@deepikapadukone Dont talk about Woman's Empowerment when YOU don't know how to RESPECT Women!"

Instead of aplogising for their cheap tactics, the news publication tweeted: “It’s a compliment! You look so great that we want to make sure everyone knew! :,” they tweeted.

However later deleted the tweet which has a link of story which got furious and also took down the story as well, after criticism mounted on Twitter and various social media platforms against the offensive story. The video was from 2013 when Deepika Padukone's Chennai Express was due to release. To dig out something this old for garnering attention is not very ethical.

Bollywood's numero uno actress instantly found support from many quartets across the microblogging site, with Bollywood colleagues and fans rushing to condemn the photograph and accompanying article.
