CAA protests: Rangoli Chandel reacts to Anurag Kashyap's tweet
The film fraternity continues to be divided over the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), which has resulted in massive nationwide protests.
Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap called the current government fascist. "This has gone too far.. can't stay silent any longer. This government is clearly fascist .. and it makes me angry to see voices that can actually make a difference stay quiet," Kashyap had tweeted.

Kangana Ranaut's sister Rangoli Chandel was quick to react on Kashyap's tweet. Here's what she said:
Anurag ji shatpratishat sehmati toh Sri Ram, Krishna, Jesus ya Mohammad ji ko bhi nahin mili thi, unse bhi bahut logon ko bahut sari problems thi, karne wale apna kaam kar gaye bolne wale bolte reh gaye ð https://t.co/ruIxnkR7WK— Rangoli Chandel (@Rangoli_A) December 23, 2019
Yeh desh kisi ke baap ka nahin hai, says Raftaar
When Raftaar took the stage on Saturday night at the Bollywood Music Project fifth edition show at Bandra Kurla Complex, instead of starting his performance with a song, he first made an anti-CAA statement. An angry Raftaar said, "You can't ask me my religion when I come on stage. Today, I am being asked my religion to stay in this country. Everyone is like my brother and sister. I am standing by them [students]. No one will leave this country. Yeh desh kisi ke baap ka nahin hai," he further added, "We are one so let's begin the party."
Raftaar then belted out his numbers, Dilli wali baat cheet, Bandook meri Laila and Aisi dhakad hai among others.
The real issue
Though the ongoing protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) are said to have affected the box office collection of Dabangg 3, Sonakshi Sinha remains unfazed. For her, the ensuing nationwide stir against it is more important than any talk of collections of the film. "The entire country has come together and that's what matters," she said at an event.
Dabangg 3 collected Rs 24.5 crore on its first day of release.
Mira Nair demands actor's release

Join me in demanding her release (sic)."
A social activist and Congress worker, Jafar was capturing videos of the agitation at the time of her arrest.
