Several protests erupted across India after the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) was passed into an act by the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, after it was sanctioned by the President of India, Ram Nath Kovind. Amid ongoing protests over Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA), a troll on social media asked Farhan Akhtar, Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi to reach out to Muslims and tell them to not destroy the country’s property. Farhan hit back at the troll and replied that he will request David Dhawan to cast him in ‘Bigot No 1’.
The social media user wrote, “Hi @FarOutAkhtar @Javedakhtarjadu @azmishabana, reach out to your qaum & tell them not to destroy my country’s property. Don’t cry when these rioters get arrested & beaten black & blue.” Farhan Akhtar had a savage, witty reply to the troll and he wrote, “Going to request David Dhawan to cast you in ‘Bigot no 1.’ .. you are perfect for the part.” David Dhawan is known for his many films ending with the suffix, ‘No. 1’, some of which are Coolie No 1, Hero No 1, Anari No 1.
