Deepika Padukone is one of the most talented actresses of Bollywood and she has proved it many times with her brilliant performances. As she has a huge fan following, she decided to spread awareness regarding the coronavirus outbreak by taking part in the #SafeHandsChallenge. In this challenge, celebrities are posting their videos in which they are seen washing their hands as per the guidelines. Washing hands is quite necessary for maintaining personal hygiene and everyone should wash their hands on a regular basis.
Deepika Padukone was nominated by @DrTedros and she posted a video in which she is seen in her washroom, washing her hands. She further nominated tennis player Roger Federer, professional football player Cristiano Ronaldo and Indian cricketer Virat Kohli. The caption that the actress wrote was,
“Thank You @DrTedros, for nominating me for the #SafeHands Challenge!#COVID19 surely is an uphill health and public safety task, but all of us are in this fight together! I further nominate @rogerfederer,@Cristiano and @imVkohli to take up this challenge! #coronavirus #StaySafe”

Despite the fact that Deepika Padukone tried to spread awareness about the coronavirus outbreak, a majority of the Indian Twitterati was not impressed much and they trolled the “Bajirao Mastani” actress. Many users slammed Deepika because she was wearing mask all the time in the video and wearing a mask inside the house is not required at all or is rather wastage of a mask.
People were not happy with the fact that she is wasting a mask by wearing it for shooting purposes while it could have been used by someone who actually needed it. Some people also trolled Deepika for tagging Roger Federer and Cristiano Ronaldo as they felt that they might not even know the actress while some asked her why she is not challenging her husband Ranveer Singh.
Here are some of the selected tweets:

But why mask inside? Why is video going so fast? Why cant for once this be a normal video. Like other celebs are doing. I hope @priyankachopra does it simple.

आपको JNU जाकर आने के बाद हाथ धोना चाहिए था,
जांच से पहले ही आपने बिना सच्चाई जाने किसी एक के पक्ष में खड़े हो गए, फिल्म प्रमोशन के लिए..
कहां से आती है इतनी घिनौनी सोच,
आपके अपने सोच को धोने का वीडियो डाल दीजिए, ये Corona viruse से भी ज्यादा खतरनाक है..

Wearing mask at home in a washroom? Really?? 😂
And you have tagged Federar & Ronaldo…… Both will google you. 🤷

You don't need a mask. You. Don't. Need. A. Mask.
You're depriving healthcare professionals & frontline workers of the masks THEY NEED. Do you even know that pharmacies are rationing out masks because they're in short supply? There's foolish & then there's celebrity foolish.
