Amidst great fanfare and worldwide acclaim, she joined the esteemed ranks of Persis Khambatta and Priyanka Chopra Jonas, becoming only the third Indian to present an Oscar at the 95th Oscar Awards.
However, in a turn of events, certain news agencies stumbled in their coverage of the event, identifying Deepika as the Brazilian supermodel Camila Alves – wife of Hollywood A-lister Matthew McConaughey. The gaffe was magnified as three international agencies – Getty, Vogue, Buzzfeed and others fell victim to this misidentification, prompting a swift response from fans and admirers alike. The online backlash was fierce, as supporters of Padukone made it their mission to educate the agencies in question about the actress’s invaluable contributions to the world of international cinema
