Gigi Hadid Stands by Varun Dhawan Amid Backlash Over NMACC Performance
Actor Varun Dhawan has been in the news lately after his recent performance at the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC) launch event went viral on social media. Dhawan has been receiving major backlash for his behavior during the performance, with many netizens criticizing him for not seeking consent before lifting and kissing international supermodel Gigi Hadid.
The incident occurred during Dhawan’s dance performance when he brought Hadid on stage, lifted her and kissed her on the cheek. Many social media users criticized the actor for his actions, saying that they were disrespectful and uncalled for. They also pointed out that Hadid looked visibly uncomfortable during the incident.
However, Gigi Hadid took to her Instagram stories to thank Varun Dhawan for making her Bollywood dream come true. She shared a video of Dhawan’s performance and wrote, “@varundvn making my Bollywood dreams come tru (laughter emojis).” Dhawan also reposted her story on his Instagram, saying, “The sweetest and the cutest Gigi making my dreams come true.”
The controversy continued when a tweet surfaced that slammed Dhawan for allegedly kissing Gigi ‘without her consent.’ Responding to the tweet, the actor said, “I guess today you woke up and decided to be woke. So lemme burst ur bubble and tell u it was planned for her to be on stage so find a new Twitter cause to vent about rather then going out and doing something about things. Good morning (sic).”
Many social media users have been expressing their disappointment with Dhawan’s behavior, calling for him to take responsibility for his actions and apologize. They have also been urging people to be more aware of the issue of consent and to ensure that they always seek it before engaging in any physical contact.
The incident highlights the importance of consent and the need for greater awareness and education on the subject. It also raises questions about the behavior of celebrities and their responsibility to set a positive example for their fans and followers. As the backlash against Varun Dhawan continues, it remains to be seen how he will respond and whether he will take steps to address the issue and apologize for his actions.
