On December 11 Citizenship Amendment Bill was passed in Lok Sabha. While, the decision has received a mixed response from the audience. While a few have accepted the new change in the country, others are expressing their disappointment with the government through protests.
The protest has affected the box-office collection of Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha starrer ‘Dabangg 3‘ that released last Friday.
Sonakshi spoke out on the same and said CAA is more important than ‘Dabangg 3’ earnings.
Sonakshi Sinha feels CAA protests is more important
Talking about the on-going protests, Sonakshi in an interview with IANS said,“We all know what is going on in the entire country. I think people know that what is more important, but I am honestly happy with the audience response to our film. At this moment, entire country has come together on this matter (CAA protests) and it is more important than a film.”
‘Dabangg 3’ collected around Rs. 24 crores on its day one. Pledging her support to the protest, the actress further added,“I am with the people of this country. I feel the way people are protesting on streets, you can’t snatch that right from them. I am very proud of the people who have come out and voiced their opinion. I am with them.”
But are the bigwigs of Bollywood scared to openly air their views? “I think they don’t feel scared, but when they (celebrities) hit the streets, then the entire focus shifts on them. We know media cameras start following them, and because of that other people might feel ignored. If people can understand that they are also a part of the crowd, then they would definitely come out,” she said.
