Now on social media, netizens are bashing Bollywood for keeping mum on the national issue.

A user wrote, “Why these #Bollywood celebrities are silent on the Wrestlers Protest at Jantar Mantar Ground Delhi. Only they speak dialogues in movies and they don’t open their mouth in real issues.” While another said, “These Bollywood celebs will otherwise leave no opportunity to pick up middle class topics to make blockbuster movies or the biopics of our wrestlers or other heroes. Where are these spineless people now? Why is no support coming for the real ground level Dangal? #WrestlersProtest.”
