“Kalki 2898 AD” Star Deepika Padukone Faces Pregnancy Trolling Amidst Film Promotions

In the lead-up to the highly anticipated release of “Kalki 2898 AD,” Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone finds herself at the center of unwarranted controversy. The actress, who recently announced her pregnancy, has been facing a wave of online trolling during promotional events for the film.

At a recent cast gathering, Padukone proudly displayed her baby bump, a moment that should have been celebrated. Instead, it sparked a flurry of negative comments on social media, with some users going so far as to accuse the actress of wearing a “fake baby bump” or suggesting she might be using a surrogate.

Comments ranged from baseless accusations – “It’s a fake baby bump.. surrogacy” – to misplaced concern – “Isn’t it dangerous to wear high heels having a baby bump.” These remarks highlight the unfortunate scrutiny faced by public figures, especially women, during personal milestones.

Despite the barrage of unnecessary and often hurtful comments, Padukone has chosen to take the high road, maintaining a dignified silence in the face of trolling. This response, or lack thereof, speaks volumes about the actress’s professionalism and focus on her work.

“Kalki 2898 AD,” directed by acclaimed filmmaker Nag Ashwin, boasts an all-star cast including Prabhas and Amitabh Bachchan. The film marks Ashwin’s third directorial venture, following the critically lauded “Mahanati.”

In this futuristic epic, Prabhas takes on the role of Bhairava, accompanied by an AI droid companion named Bujji (voiced by Keerthy Suresh). Padukone portrays the crucial character of Sumati (SUM-80), who is on the run while carrying the Kalki avatar.

As the film’s release approaches, it’s clear that the talented cast and intriguing premise should be the focus of attention, rather than unfounded speculation about an actress’s personal life. “Kalki 2898 AD” promises to be a groundbreaking addition to Indian cinema, and it’s high time we shifted the conversation back to where it belongs – on the art and not the artists’ personal lives.
