Rang De Basanti Cast Adds Voice To Anti-CAA Protests
While Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra participated in the protest against the Citizenship Act at Mumbai’s August Kranti Maidan on Thursday, actor Siddharth took to Twitter and shared a dialogue from the film: ‘Ab bhi jo na khaula woh khoon nahi hai paani hai... Jo desh ke kaam na aaye woh bekaar jawaani hai’. He also said that revolution is the life-blood of democracy.
Actor Kunal Kapoor said, “It shocks me, how many educated, seemingly rational people I know are completely bigoted. And not just on religious lines, but also on the lines of caste.”
The right to peaceful protest is fundamental to ideals of democracy and constitutionalism. Please keep the protests non-violent and those in governance please exercise restraint. Our children and students should feel safe on their campuses protected and not fearful of the police.— Soha Ali Khan (@sakpataudi) December 17, 2019
Atul Kulkarni wrote on Twitter, “Discrimination is like a termite which doesn’t stop at the surface but eventually eats up into the core.”

However, amid all this, superstar Aamir Khan, who played the role of Chandrashekhar Azad in the film has not said anything till now. Sharman Joshi, the other actor in the film, has also maintained silence.
Discrimination is like a termite which doesn’t stop at the surface but eventually eats up into the core. Religion is just the surface, caste and gender are the core. With the likes of states , languages, food in between. #peace— atul kulkarni (@atul_kulkarni) December 18, 2019
