Anil Kapoor daughter Rhea Kapoor Shows Support To JNU Students: Writes Emotional Post on Social Media

The recent violence that happened on Sunday at Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) has raised a lot of anger among the Bollywood celebrities. Many known celebrities from Bollywood like Anurag Kashyap, Dia Mirza, Richa Chaddha, Zoya Akhtar, Taapsee Pannu and more have expressed their deep concern over the JNU violence. Now Rhea Kapoor, the younger daughter of Anil Kapoor has shared a post on Social media supporting the JNU students.

In a social media post, Rhea Kapoor wrote “Very rarely do I get into politics on social media because my first thought is who really cares what I think? Am I equipped to give an opinion on a public platform about things that I may barely understand? But now I have to say that I know our generation and when we look back I’m afraid we may be remembered for things we didn’t stand for.”.

Further, Rhea says “I know this is not who we are. This is not what we believe. So then I guess for those afraid to speak up fearing they may make a mistake, this is the only way to use your voice. To say, I don’t know everything and there may be things that i do not understand. But I know this isn’t right. For everyone who feels pressure to ‘pick a side’ don’t. Say what you feel. Most good people I know react to sincerity with understanding and empathy. Be sincere, use your voice and tell the truth. What’s happening in our country seems alien and unrecognisable. Im not sure how we got here. It’s always been a hidden truth that you may be punished if your opinions are too loud or unpopular. But now it’s there to see. And that scares the shit out of me. My thoughts are with the students at JNU you are so much braver than I could ever be.”
