Actress Deepika Padukone on Tuesday reached the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) to extend solidarity towards the students following Sunday's violence.
The actor was spotted standing with the students at the Sabarmati T-point, where a public meeting was called by alumni of JNU over Sunday's violence in the varsity.
She also met JNUSU President Aishe Ghosh who was injured in the violence.
Padukone did not address the meeting and left after an hour.
The meet was also attended by former JNU students like Sitaram Yechury, Kanhaiya Kumar, D. Raja and Yogendra Yadav.
Several Bollywood personalities have come out on the streets here and held peaceful protests against the attack on JNU students.
The protests were held on Monday evening at Mumbai's Carter Road Promenade.
