Varun Talks On CAA; Kangana calls B-town Actors As 'Cowards'

The ongoing violence-filled mass protests in and around Jamia Millia Islamia University is making netizens show outrage. In the same manner, fans expected the Bollywood fraternity to voice their opinions. Since most of the big celebrities failed to react, netizens trended #ShameonBollwyood hashtag on social media platforms and trolled stars for beings elf-centred.

On this, Varun Dhawan responded saying that sitting in Mumbai and expecting something else must happen in other parts of the country is wrong. We can not comment about what's happening over there until we don't see it. The actor has certainly condemned the violence shown by cops on students and the disturbing visuals of the law and order. 'Any kind of force used against peaceful protestors is wrong. We are 100 per cent agreeing with that,' he said.

'Right now, it's such a sensitive matter that it's easy to speak and say something or to slam someone. When you're a public personality, people follow you, kids follow you. Once the situation has been studied, I will definitely give my viewpoint concerning something,' he added. 'I don't want to instigate someone wrongly. I'm just trying to be responsible for what I say. I am not scared of anyone because I love my country'.

'Speaking out today has become about social media. If you didn't tweet, you're wrong. But what will happen by tweeting? Is the entire country on Twitter? No. Personally, I feel I can have those conversations in my living room with my parents and friends. The best way for all of us to make a difference is by how you live your life, how you are when you work, who your friends are,' Varun added.

On the other hand, Kangana Ranaut, while expressing her views on CAA and the ongoing protests, slammed Bollywood actors saying that 'All the actors should be ashamed of themselves. I have no illusions about the fact that Bollywood is full of cowards. All they do is just look into the mirror 20 times a day and when they're asked they say we have electricity and we have access to everything, we are privileged, why should we be bothered about the country.  I have come out in the open to question them. Some of them are just hiding behind their comfort zone. The public is noticing how indifferent they are to the nation and its people and to what is going on in the nation. They are indifferent and that's why I think that trend is absolutely justified'.

Several members from the film fraternity like Richa Chadha, Konkona SenSharma, Dia Mirza, Farhan Akhtar, Parineeti Chopra, Javed Akhtar, Vishal Bhardwaj and Anurag Kashyap took to Twitter to express support for students of Jamia Millia Islamia, following a police crackdown in the campus in Delhi. Later today, Hrithik Roshan, Prakash Raj, Swara Bhasker have expressed their concerns.
