Mumbai, December 18, 2019:

The protests against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act continue to rock the country, and eminent personalities from all fields are now starting to oppose the C(A)A that is turning out to be one of the most contentious battlegrounds for the Centre and the opposers of the Act.

After the protests by the students from across India took a violent turn with the state machinery curbing the protests with the iron fist of power, celebrities have also joined the voices being raised against the allegedly "unconstitutional" Bill.

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who had taken a sabbatical from social media after someone had hurled abuses at his daughter over a political discussion on Twitter, returned to the platform to oppose the C(A)A. He tweeted, “कितना झूठ बोलता है @AmitShah । इतना बड़ा झूठा home मिनिस्टर कहीं नहीं देखा । कश्मीर में प्रॉब्लम नहीं है । कहीं प्रॉब्लम नहीं है। सब चंगा सी ।।। साफ़ साफ़ बोल दो . जो हिंदू राष्ट्र नहीं चाहता चले जाए । है हिम्मत तो बोल दो PM @narendramodi और HM @AmitShah जी । चले जाएँगे ।।” (Amit Shah lies so much! Never seen such a lying Home Minister! No problem in Kashmir! No problem anywhere! Everything is fine! Tell us honestly: those who don't want a Hindu Rashtra may leave, Home Minister Amit Shah and PM Modi. And, we will!"

Bollywood actor-director-musician Farhan Akhtar also took to Twitter to express his distaste for the Bill, and wrote: “Here’s what you need to know about why these protests are important. See you on the 19th at August Kranti Maidan, Mumbai. The time to protest on social media alone is over.”

Sharing a picture of the Preamble of the Constitution of India, Sonakshi Sinha tweeted, “This is what we were, what we are and what we MUST remain! #neverforget.”

Meanwhile, TV Actor Sushant Singh on Tuesday morning tweeted that his association with the long-running TV show “Savdhaan India” has come to an end. This led to speculation that the development came after Singh had participated in protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act.
