"We believe Citizenship Amendment Bill is discriminatory and it violates the constitutional values. We don't accept this bill and if it becomes a law we shall boycott its execution. We pledge not to submit any documents if asked to prove our citizenship," said Mahesh Bhatt in a video, which is now viral on the internet.
"When no one has the answers, students do. Look at history worldwide. And stop questioning just the movie stars. There are other 'ICONS' too who 'copy paste tweets' on everything jingoistic. QUESTION ALL OF THEM!!! Tell them to at least post dictations. Cricketers. Writers. Singers. Athletes etc etc. TAG THEM," is how Anubhav reacted.
