He also mentioned about Sushanth Singh, Sushanth Singh was a Host of Savdhaan India Show, Sushanth Singh participated in rallies due to that Producers of Savdhaan India said Sushanth to leave the Show without any reason.
Javeed Jaffery pointed out that no employment, Indian economy is falling down, No Food, Shelter for poor people the government should focus on development but our government is interested in Hindus and Muslims religious fights. He praised B.R. Ambedkar for the Constitution, unfortunately, our government is totally against that constitution.
Farhan Akhtar stated that when educated young students and many people are protesting which means there is something wrong is happening or going to happen. Discrimination is happening in between religious views. Farhan said As I born and grow up in India it is important to raise my voice.
Huma Qureshi Bollywood actress also participated is Peace rally on against NRC and CAB when an Interviewer came near to Huma, Huma Qureshi said to the Interviewer go and ask the common people because they are suffering more, Why simply you people target a celebrities, She said citizenship should not be decided on bases of names, religion.
Sushanth Singh said that protest should be done without any violence and he is happy that Hindu, Muslims, Christians and Sikhs gathered in a protest supporting each other.

Bollywood Singer Papon Angaraag cancels Delhi show over CAB, says his home state is ‘burning. He Tweeted (It’s painful to see the way Assam is burning! Humanity is suffering! Assam has been burdened with illegal immigration for decades! We don’t deserve this! The diverse, complex mix of the Assamese culture & people and their existence needs to be understood! We need to be heard properly)
Bollywood actress Richa Chadha Tweeted (I am no expert but #CAB #NRC sounds like an expensive and corrosive plan. Its like 160 people died in ATM lines during the demonetization were signalling the death of the economy as well. So the taxpayer will bear the brunt of this hubris?)
Bollywood actress Tapsee Pannu, Yami Gautham and Nusrat Bharucha shared their views on Jamia Milia Islamia College students protests, but no one clearly mentioned the word NRC or CAB because they all know using this words publically may affect their film carrier.
