While many celebrities like Taapsee Pannu, Vicky Kaushal, Anurag Kashyap, Zoya Akhtar, Rajkumar Rao have been vocal about their support for the students’ protests. There are few who decided to choose the safe side. Being a celebrity in India you have so many people who look up to you. Your voice matters. Some celebrities use their voice to make a difference and some choose to not get involved. Here’s a list of bollywood stars who chose to keep their mouth shut about the protest.
On behalf of the students of Jamia & AMU request at least one of you to tweet or message Mr.Modi condemning this act of police brutality and violence against students. The time has come to speak up guys. Yes? No? May be?@RanveerOfficial @karanjohar @ayushmannk @RajkummarRao pic.twitter.com/6l5ky5zbNt

1. Shah Rukh Khan
Shah Rukh Khan is also an Alumnus of Jamia Milia Islamia University. He got a many backlashes. Many people asked what is the reason for his silence. Many people also questioned his support as he is Jamia alumni. But that doesn’t seem to break his golden silence. SRK seems to remain silent till date.
Your silence is now getting deafening.
Whatever GoI is threatening you with, your silence is going to cost you so much more. Love & respect you guys earned with your hardwork!#NoToCAB

2. Amitabh Bachchan
He is one of the biggest stars of all times. But his silence shocked many. He was called out by many for keeping his mouth shut. The youth of the nation got furious on why such bollywood biggies chose to keep their mouth shut. However after being questioned so many times he had this to say.

Rajni is known as superstar of south Indian industry. But the superstar who joined politics 2 years ago remained silent when asked about the protest during his trailer launch. He dogded the question by saying “This is a cinema function. I don’t want to mix politics and cinema”.
4. Aamir khan
Aamir khan is known for making influencing Bollywood movies. But he has also chosen to keep mum. He got trolled many times. Many people questioned him but there is no way he broke his silence. It’s not like he never raised his voice. Remember in 2015 there was huge news wave when he spoke about ‘intolerance’. But this time he chooses silence.
Actress Kangana Ranaut called the bollywood stars ‘sissies and cowards’, who chose not to keep their mouth shut regarding protest. India is a country of integrity and unity in diversity. Let us all support what is right. And not be afraid to raise our voice for something that matters.
