No, Ranveer and Deepika Are Not Campaigning for the BJP

Doctored photographs of Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone soliciting votes for the BJP have been doing the rounds on social media. A pro-BJP page on Facebook called Ek Bihari 100 Pe Bhari has posted a photo of the couple wearing orange dupattas with the words ‘Vote for BJP’ crudely photoshopped on to the image.

The original photo, however, is from Ranveer and Deepika’s visit to Mumbai’s Siddhivinayak Temple following their wedding in November last year. The couple can be seen wearing the same outfits, but of course sans any message soliciting votes for any party.

Ranveer is currently shooting for Kabir Khan directorial 83, which is based on India’s historic win at the 1983 Cricket World Cup. Deepika has been spotted filming for Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak, a film based on acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal.
