Amid the controversy surrounding Pathaan, Deepika Padukone presented the gold trophy ahead of the FIFA World Cup 2022 final while Shah Rukh Khan joined the pundits to discuss the nail-biting match between Argentina and France. Deepika, who was receiving sexist hate on social media for Pathaan’s song ‘Besharam Rang’, was seen accompanying legendary Spanish footballer Iker Casillas at the launch event.
Indians, of course, loved the idea as the radiant Deepika was seen in a beautiful avatar and pictures and videos of her next to the golden trophy went viral on the internet. “Aren’t we all proud? Deepika Padukone, y’all. The Queen,” wrote one Twitter user.
“Do you want to boycott him? It will not happen Deepika Padukone is the first Indian to get the honor of presenting the FIFA trophy representing LV as their first Indian brand global ambassador. Your favorites never will!” wrote another fan.
