Amid ongoing protests against the NRC and Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019, a few celebrities such as Parineeti Chopra, Anurag Kashyap, Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana and others took to social media and raised their voice. While a section of Twitterati was furious that the Bollywood biggies won’t speak about it, with each passing day, more and more celebrities seem to be coming out with their opinions on it and the latest one to voice his opinion is Sacred Games writer Varun Grover. He has come up with a unique anthem of his own to protest the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019.
Varun Grover is a writer, standup comedian and National Award winning lyricist. He won the award for Best Lyricist at the 63rd National Film Awards in 2015. In a video posted by the writer of Sacred Games fame on Twitter, he talks about the controversy surrounding CAA and NRC papers and about the protests and the government’s handling of it throughout the country. Titled 'Hum Kaagaz Nahi Dikhaenge,’ (We Won’t Show The NRC Papers) this anthem has gone viral on the Internet. Sharing the video, Varun Grover wrote, “"हम काग़ज़ नहीं दिखाएँगे।" Inspired by the spirit of every protestor and India-lover. With hat-tips to Rahat Indori saab and the Bangla slogans.
