The actor was asked by the media about his thoughts on the bill and the reaction of the people to it. Farhan gave a very uninformed answer and was severely bashed for it. When asked about the government’s rehearsed pledges with regard to the Citizenship Amendment Act, Farhan pointed out that the new citizenship law was an indication of something being wrong with the act.
