British, Indian media clash over Deepika’s ‘Bollywood blunder’at MTV Awards

Deepika Padukone’s military green look at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA) 2016 has been tagged as a ‘Bollywood blunder’ by international publications. British tabloid Daily Mail which had referred to Deepika as the “female companion” of tennis star Novak Djokovic earlier this year, featured the Hindi film star among the ‘Worst Dressed Celebs’ of MTV EMAs, and tagged her as a ‘Bollywood Blunder’.

The publication share an image of the actor, with the caption: “Indian actor Deepika Padukone may be stunning but her swamp green bralet and skirt combo did nothing for her sensational figure.” Another publication, Mirror, stated: “Indian film actress Deepika Padukone posed on the red carpet in what looked like a pair of giant dark green curtains as a skirt, a black sparkling bralet and huge chandelier earrings.” Deepika is among the top young stars of Hindi cinema, having proved her mettle on the silver screen with myriad roles in films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Chennai Express, Cocktail, Bajirao Mastani and Piku.

Deccan Chronicle complimented Deepika’s looks and stated, “High slit trail skirt teamed with heavily embellished bodice and matching bomber jacket was DP’s look for the evening. And trust us, if looks could kill then she would be in prison now!”

Times of India also subtly slammed the western media and commented saying, “Many would find this look too edgy and out of their comfort zone, but let’s not forget it was a music awards event – a perfect place to rock that edgy look. Without a doubt, she was a head-turner.”

She will be making her Hollywood debut with xXx: Return of Xander Cage next year alongside Vin Diesel, and was one of the presenters at the event along with her co-star Nina Dobrev. The ceremony took place here on Sunday, and was aired in India on Vh1.

At the event, Deepika’s look seemed to be in sync with her fierceful and strong character of xXx: Return of Xander Cage. She wore a Monisha Jaising ensemble – a skirt with a black, sequin bralette.

Jaising posted Deepika’s image on Instagram and captioned it: “Military green is a functional and strong colour. It has a tough, almost androgynous appeal for all of those women warriors out there! Deepika is unstoppable, fit and fierce; making a perfect muse for my Artemisia Gown. I’m thrilled to collaboratively envision with Shaleena Nathani, and create this very special piece for Deepika Padukone for the EMAs.”
