Stars like Parineeti Chopra, Sonakshi Sinha, Alia Bhatt, Farhan Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Vicky Kaushal and many more have taken this matter to their social media handles to express their viewpoint.

He said, “Honestly, what’s happening in the country and is been reported, the reason why I don’t want to comment on what exactly it's happening because there are four-five versions floating. See as we are sitting in her Mumbai, something else is happening on the other parts of the country, so it is very wrong on us to comment on that until we don’t see that or 100% aware of what’s happening.” ALSO READ: Street Dancer 3D Vs Step Up: 5 Similarities Between Varun Dhawan-Shraddha Kapoor's Gig And Hollywood's Famed Dance Franchise
