On Sunday, some Bollywood celebs were invited for meeting related to CAA by Union Minister Piyush Goyal and BJP vice president Baijayant Jay Panda. Ranvir Shorey, Anu Malik, Shaan, Bhushan Kumar, Prasoon Joshi, Kunal Kohli, Roop Kumar Rathod, Abhishek Kapoor, Kailash Kher, Shashi Rajan, Anu Rajan, Ramesh Taurani and Rahul Rawail had attended the meeting in the evening.
The meeting was held by the ministers to discuss the Citizen Amendment Act (CAA) and to clear the ‘misinformation’ around it. From the day CAA happened in India, a lot of people including several Bollywood celebs have criticised it. Actor Ranvir Shorey has shared what happened during the meet.
Ranvir told Indian Express, “We were mostly clearing the air around CAA. The fact how it’s not about taking the citizenship away but granting it to refugees from neighbouring Islamic countries. The government feels there is a lot of misinterpretation regarding the CAA, because of which there are protests still going on.”
The actor added that he was already in support of CAA but it was pointed out to him that there could be some problems with it along with NRC for the minorities. He revealed that he mentioned it to the BJP leaders but he was given assurance that it won’t affect the citizens of India.
Ranvir shared, “I was also told the Home Minister and Prime Minister themselves have given assurances that the NRC or any exercise will legally be conducted in a way where no Indian citizen will be affected.”
