The controversies around Padmaavat never seem to end. From frequent title changes (Padmavati to Padmavat to finally Padmaavat) and protests to request for a nationwide ban, the makers of Padmaavat have faced numerous hurdles. The film, which was set to release on December 1st, was postponed to January 25 as it awaited clearance from the CBFC. Also, the makers themselves felt the environment was too volatile at the time. Now, after incorporating the 5 changes suggested by the CBFC, the film is all set to release. But a few states still chose to ban the film and the makers had to approach the Supreme Court. All these controversies naturally had an impact on not just the director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, but also the actors, Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. But while the debates around the film continue, Deepika Padukone is busy enjoying a joke on herself, or, to be precise, her name! The actor shared a hilarious meme on her Instagram account that has left the netizens in splits.Also Read - Ultra Cool!

The meme was shared by Deepika on January 18, and has gone viral in no time. It has received over 7 lakh likes and close to 14000 comments. In the meme, Deepika draws a parallel between her name and an ice-cream cone. Confused? Well, many would have noticed that there is a ‘cone’ or ‘kone’ in Deepika’s surname. Well, a creative mind has used this to make a six-box meme. The meme shows Deepika Padukone not just entering an ice-cream cone but also eating an ice-cream cone made up of Deepika Padukone. The witty usage of wordplay makes it an interesting and funny meme. It is also great to see that Deepika herself has shared the meme on Instagram, as it is not often that actors crack a joke on themselves.
