Comedian Kunal Kamra has been in the headlines since yesterday. Earlier we saw him sharing his experience of what happened when he flew on the same flight with journalist Arnab Goswami. It did not go well with many and the comedian faced a backlash resulting in three airlines banning him for a certain period of time. But now, he has found support from many Bollywood celebs including Swara Bhasker, Anubhav Sinha and others.

Filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has been vocal against the ruling party and its controversial bills, including CAA NRC. Anubhav, in a tweet, wrote that what Kunal did was not correct in ordinary circumstances but the currents situation is not one of them.

He wrote, “Of course what Kunal did is ridiculous under ordinary circumstances. But these are no ordinary times. These are times when a union minister instructs all airlines to ban a stand-up comedian because he insulted Goebbels clan. So stop trying to sound ‘proper’ please,”

Meanwhile, actress Richa Chadha reminded the people who are condemning Kunal, of the episode when Sadhvi Pragya arguing with people in the flight. She wrote, “Genuinely asking in light of this… a flight was held up and an elected representative said, “first class is my right”. Was she put on any no-fly list for causing a delay? We’re co-passengers who asked her persistent questions banned? Does ANYONE have more info?”

Swara Bhasker on the other hand had a funny take and said, “@kunalkamra88 how will you survive this devastating blow?”

Filmmaker Hansal Mehta also took to twitter to put out his stand and wrote, “I did not like the way @kunalkamra88 heckled Arnab on a flight. I felt it was unnecessary and uncool coming from someone who usually criticizes with such sharp wit. But seeing the even more uncool response by airlines (with govt blessings) to his behaviour I have mixed feelings… Kunal Kamra’s act now seems almost like the only option to expose an establishment and its stooges. He called Arnab out in a very crude way and the response was a vulgar show of authoritarianism. Kamra’s protest still does not feel right to me but I almost feel it was necessary.”

For the unversed, Air India, Spice Jet and Indigo Airlines have all banned Kunal for the next 6 months and there have been a lot of mixed reactions about the same. Kunal earlier today has even shared a statement where he spoke about the episode in length.
