After Deepika Padukone visited the JNU campus on Tuesday evening, her presence in the campus has triggered a massive debate on the Internet. Deepika's visit came just days before the release of her upcoming film 'Chhapaak', based on an acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.

A few tweets by various media organisations, with Deepika and JNUSU President Aishe Gosh's pictures, were sourced to the PR firm ‘SPICE PR’. This mention has raised more questions amongst social media users. 

Agency did not post the picture itself 

Supporting the claim that the actress was indeed present there for promotions, pictures of her JNU visit have flooded social media, with a number of them giving credit to a PR agency, though the agency in question hasn't posted the pictures itself.
