Varun Dhawan, who is busy with the promotions of Street Dancer 3D broke his silence on the JNU violence. On January 5, a group of goons attacked the students and teachers in JNU which has shocked the entire nation.
Yesterday, Deepika Padukone visited JNU and participated in the silent protest. Since the beginning, Swara Bhasker, Anurag Kashyap, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub, Richa Chadha, Anubhav Sinha and many others have been actively raising their voice against the violence. Now, even Varun Dhawan has condemned the attacks on students.
In an interview with PTI, the Badlapur actor said, “Cannot stay neutral on such issues. It’s dangerous and sad if masked people enter an educational institution and all this happens.”
He added, “But the police will investigate it. As an Indian, I have full faith in the police and judiciary. I hope those involved in this incident get severe punishment as soon as possible.”
Varun added that parents want their students to be safe inside college campuses. He siad that it’s the need of the hour to have peace and stability around and people should remain united.
There has been a clear divide in Bollywood regarding the protests and the violence. When the October actor was asked about this, he answered, “I am not going to get into what people are saying on Twitter on this issue.”
