Helping the needy is something that gets appreciation from people, but if it is done for publicity, the good deed invites criticism especially when its done by celebrities. 

"Wonder how this came out [sic]," Hansika posted on her Twitter page, while sharing a tweet that carried a video uploaded by her fans. In the video, Hansika is seen secretly providing clothing and other basic necessities to the homeless people in Chennai. While many have lauded the actress for her kind act, there are few others who call it a publicity stunt, as the video looks like she was aware of getting filmed. 

"Please don't act. You shoot the video, make someone upload it, and now you say you wonder how it came out [sic]," writes a social media user. "She does this just for cheap publicity," writes another netizen. Another person writes that Hansika does this as her recent movies couldn't make a mark at the box office. "Hansika publicity paithyam. No hits afterall so have to do all this. so sad [sic]."

Here are few positive social media responses after Hansika's video went viral:

"Help others as much as u can. Please go help others ... It's the monsoon season. Please help em with the basics that's the least we can do [sic]," the bubbly actress further tells her fans.

Meanwhile, on the acting front, the charming actress was last seen in the legal thriller "Manithan," which became an average grosser at the Tamil Nadu box office. She also has Tamil films "Bogan" and "Vettai Mannan" in her kitty lined up for the year.
