Actress Deepika Singh recently filled up her Instagram with glimpses of a photoshoot she had as something to remember Cyclone Tauktae by – her words. In one of her posts, Deepika Singh wrote that while clearing the road in front of her house, her husband Rohit Raj Goyal clicked a few photos of her with this perspective in mind: “You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself, embrace the nature and it’s gloomy moods because the storm will pass.” The Diya Aur Baati Hum actress also shared a video on Instagram, in which she can be seen dancing in the rain, with the uprooted tree in the backdrop. Her posts prompted a barrage of comments, which were critical of her posts for appearing to be insensitive.
One user reminded her of her privilege and wrote: “Tumhare ghar ki chat sahi salamat hai isiliye… (Because your house is still intact, that’s why)” while another user commented: “People are dying in cyclone but people like you are enjoying this. What a shame.” Several of her Instagram followers also reminded her that stepping out during the cyclone was not a great idea: “Don’t promote these types of videos, it was not good to be outside.”
