Deepika Padukone was spotted at Luv Ranjan’s residence with Ranbir Kapoor on Friday. This has led to people believing that Deepika might work with the director for his next film which features Ranbir Kapoor and Ajay Devgn. However, even though the film offer seems lucrative, Twitter doesn’t want Deepika to work with Ranjan. This is because the director was accused of sexual harassment during the #MeToo era. The social media users are so unhappy with the possibility of the actress working with the director that #LuvRanjan and #NotMyDeepika have trended on Twitter.
During the #MeToo movement, an actress said that during the auditions for Pyaar Ka Punchanama, the director had asked her to strip to her underwear and asked her inappropriate questions which made her uncomfortable. The actor alleged that she had to walk out of the auditions because of how uncomfortable the director made her. Luv Ranjan had denied those allegations but then went on to work with Alok Nath in De De Pyaar De, who was also accused of rape by Vinta Nanda.
The trend of #NotMyDeepika shows how people are unhappy that the actress is meeting with the director to possibly work with him. The actor has time and again supported the movement and called it a positive step to make Bollywood a safer place.

Everyone use #notmydeepika in tweets. Tag @karishma_p87 @SpiceSocial1 @Jayasaha @indranildasblah in your tweets. If she does Luv Ranjan’s film (A #MeToo accused) then don’t expect us fans to suck it up blindly. Sorry @anishapadukone but we really thought DP had better principles.
@deepikapadukone Stay winning. Stand for the right thing with grace and class. Use your power to change the way #Metooindia has played out in the Hindi film industry. Please. #notmydeepika https://twitter.com/upalakbr999/status/1152481273991987200 …Upala KBR @upalakbr999
I say all this coz no matter what i wrote about @deepikapadukone not once did she criticise me, even if she hadnt liked the story. In fact whenever we met after that, her warmth, niceness & grace overwhelmed me. You cannot unlike Deepika #LoveAndRespect #TrueStar https://twitter.com/upalakbr999/status/1152479012431618050 …
We respect you, @deepikapadukone . Please do the right thing. #notmydeepika https://twitter.com/ranveerkfanclub/status/1152468727910154240 …Ranveer ka Fan Club@ranveerkfanclub
The Deepika we know is extremely kind, compassionate, empathetic and righteous. Please don’t let us down by working with an abuser, it is everything against what you stand up for @deepikapadukone #notmydeepika
On a side note if it were for any other actor or actress there would be zero backlash because most of them have zero credibility. Deepika has built a reputation for herself and her ideals. Her fans don’t just stan Deepika the actor but the Deepika the human being #notmydeepika
Being her fan for so many years, i’ve constantly seen her live upto her words.She’s not said one thing & done another or gone back on her words.I really really hope it remains the same.@deepikapadukone Pls don’t ruin the reputation & trust that took years to built. #notmydeepika
I love Deepika has an actress but at the end of the day I do realize that actors shouldn’t be idolized,they will do stuff that can earn money and have almost zero principles. High time for people on the bird app to look beyond stars#notmydeepika

Deepika’s team hasn’t commented on this topic yet. No official confirmation regarding this film has been made by the makers but if Luv Ranjan manages to pull this casting coup, it would be for the fourth time that Ranbir and Deepika will work together after Bachna Ae Haseeno, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Tamasha.
