Hrithik Roshan on student protests against CAA: 'Saddened by the unrest across various educational institutions'
Hrithik Roshan took to Twitter to express how 'saddened' he is by the 'unrest across educational institutions.
With student protests raging across India against the Citizenship Amendment Act 2019, Bollywood celebrities stand divided on the issue. While a few celebrities such as Anurag Kashyap, Farhan Akhtar, Richa Chadha, and Ali Fazal among others are unabashedly voicing their opinion to condemn the act, deafening silence from prominent personalities like Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan is raising questions.
Hrithik Roshan recently took to Twitter to express how 'saddened' he is by the 'unrest across educational institutions.' He further added, "Great teachers learn from their students. I salute the words youngest democracy."
However, he seemed to have deterred from making any statements against the state or the CAA.
