Baba Ramdev has advice for Deepika Padukone -- the "right advice", he says.
The target of right-wing ever since she turned up at the JNU campus last week, Padukone "should first study social, political and cultural issues and understand more about our country," said Ramdev.
"After acquiring this knowledge, she should take big decisions," the yoga guru said.
Deepika Padukone's show of solidarity with protesting students sparked calls for a boycott of her new film, Chhapaak, from various right-wing groups and some BJP leaders.
It divided public opinion: many appraised her courage, but some saw her visit as an attempt to promote the movie.
"I feel that Deepika Padukone should have persons like Swami Ramdev for the right piece of advice," Baba Ramdev said.
Deepika Padukone's appearance at JNU came days after masked goons ran inside the university campus on January 5, targeting students and staff and vandalising property in what the varsity teachers' association called an "orgy of violence".
When Padukone spoke to an eminent TV recently about the violence, she said she was "very angry at what is happening but it is worse that no action is being taken".
