Anil Kapoor was asked about his opinions on the ongoing protests against Citizenship Amendment Act and the attack on Jawaharlal Nehru University on Sunday. 

Speaking about the same Anil said, “I feel it has to be condemned. It was quite sad and shocking what I saw. It was very disturbing. I didn’t sleep the entire night by thinking about it. I feel you will not get anything by being violent and whoever has done that should be punished.” 


“It is heartening to see people come out and raise their voice without fear,”said actor Deepika Padukone as thousands across India take to the streets to voice their protest against the amended Citizenship Act, the National Register of Citizens and violence in JNU.

The 34-year-old actor, who was in New Delhi to promote her upcoming release ‘Chhapaak’, said it is necessary for people to express their point of view to bring about a change. “I feel proud to see that we aren’t scared to express ourselves.I think the fact that we are thinking about the country and its future. Whatever may be our point of view, it’s nice to see,” Deepika shared with media in New Delhi.

“I feel proud about it that people are coming out–be it on the streets or wherever they are–they are raising their voice and expressing themselves as it is important. If we want to see change in life and society, it is important that a point of view be put forward,” she said.

‘Chhapaak’, directed by Meghna Gulzar, releases on Friday. Meghna, 46, said she could feel the pain of the people even though she is not well-versed with the issues. “Definitely there are thoughts. We live in the same society, so we will react. Unfortunately, we don’t have full information as yet so making comments on the same is not our place. But there is pain, there is awareness. There is uneasiness. I hope that the peaceful environment or equilibrium is restored. We don’t know what’s the solution or the way to go about it. Both people and situation are torn, hope it gets fixed soon,” she said.
