Saif Ali Khan has finally spoken on the CAA-NRC protest happening across the country. He remained diplomatic and A-political as he expressed his views. In conversation with film critic Anupama Chopra, the actor even without mentioning about protests in his conversation, touched upon the topics which included secularism, democracy and remaining A-political in today’s day and time. He also added of being a responsible actor while he speaks upon such topics.
Subtly expressing his views on the ongoing protests across the country, he stated that he feels sad about the countrymen taking a populist approach as compared to being liberal, democratic which we are known for. He also mentioned that this approach is taking us away from the secular route which we were bound to follow. He added that his life in terms of facilities such as education, medical, investment and work is far more advanced and better but stated that the way country is headed now, it’s obvious that it is not holding onto the notion of secularism anymore.

Known to be a democratic country, Saif feels that citizens are not taking a stand against certain things. If one happens to exercise the right of being democratic, we just end up hurting many people, Saif says. For that matter even if an actor takes a stand, his/her film might get affected, with a ban imposed on it, leading to a lot of chain reactions in terms of revenue generation especially. Thus, remaining A-political is the safe option, states Saif Ali Khan. ALSO READ: JNU Visit Costs Deepika Padukone Dearly, Are Brands Associated With Actress Cutting Down On Ads Featuring Her?
