While Chhapaak actress Deepika Padukone might have taken her stand in the JNU violence row, the users are expecting major A-listers like Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and others to speak up as well. Now, an old video featuring Big B, Sachin Tendulkar amongst others is going viral on the internet where the actors can be said chanting ‘Main Hindustani’ over a social message.
The video showcases various celebrities starting from Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar, Shabana Azmi, Anupam Kher, Abhishek Bachchan, Tabu fighting against religious discrimination with the slogan ‘A crime against Indians is a crime against India’ (be it a Hindu or a Muslim). The social media users are backlashing most actors featured for maintaining silence over the on-going crisis in the country, starting from CAA to JNU violence.
