Aamir Khan feels unsafe to live in India, Farhan Akhtar protests #CAA_NRC without knowing the facts & Deepika Padukone shows up at JNU to support Aishe Ghosh. It can’t be a coincidence and it’s not. They are all managed by a Mumbai based company - Spice PR 👇#DeepikaPRBackfires
This is how the PR machinery works. They have creatives, content, strategy all figured out much before the actual event. Right after Deepika left from JNU, the following creatives started floating on SM platforms like Twitter, FB, Instagram, Snapchat, etc. #DeepikaPRBackfires
Soon within 24 hours #ISupportDeepika was trending at No. 1 in India with 236K tweets and No. 3 in Worldwide trends with 234k tweets. But how did they get so many tweets in 24 hours when #BoycottChhaapaak was trending at No. 2 with just 177K Tweets? Weird no? #DeepikaPRBackfires

Haven't seen #Chhapaak. But hope it highlights KEY issues of #acid violence in India:
1) No control on its sale & distribution.
2) It's cheap & available everywhere.
3) Police often don't take action.
4) Hospitals refuse victims.
5) No medical or monetary compensation for victims
2/ The aim of this THREAD is to urge #DeepikaPadukone who is the star & also the producer of the film #Chhapaak, to ensure that the acid attack survivor #LaxmiAgarwal, on whose life the film is based, ensures Laxmi gets a profit & royalty based dividend in the film. She needs it.
3/ Acid survivor #LaxmiAgarwal on whose life Film #Chhappak is based on, lives in desperate poverty. In Sept 2018, she was on the verge of being evicted from her room with her baby. She had only Rs5000/- and does not get paid for any show she's invited to.
