According to Debkalpa Banerjee, I am confused about what I should be more surprised of… Indian blogs reacting as if it’s an act of crime for an actress to de-glam herself and not be put forward as fodder for male fantasies, for the sake of the character she’s playing, or the fact that Deepika Padukone is involved in Majid Majidi’s new project. Woah.
