According to Hindustan Times, beneath the pictures the photographer had written that all images and videos posted by him cannot be re-shared without his permission. Padukone responded, "Right. But it is OK for you to take this video and not only post it but also probably monetise it without his or his family’s written consent?”

Social media users had come in support of the actress’ sentiments in the comments section of the now-deleted post.

After Rajput's passing, Padukone had shared a statement on social media in which she reiterated the need to talk, communicate, and reach out to those who may be coping with mental illnesses.

Padukone and Rajput have never shared the screen space, but she featured in a dance song in his 2017 film Raabta with Kriti Sanon.
