Anil Kapoor’s younger daughter Rhea Kapoor shared a post via social media. In this post Rhea is talking and supporting JNU students in support. Rhea wrote, “On social media, I rarely consider political issues, because my first thought is who will appreciate my views? Am I qualified to give my opinion about things that I could hardly understand. But now I have to say that I know my generation and when we look back, I feel scared. We will be remembered for the things we did not stand for. I know that it is not us. This is not what we believe in. ”

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. 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. ?
Simultaneously, Rhea Kapoor has further written, “For those who feel pressure to favor one, speak what you feel. Many good people, whom I know give their responses with understanding and honesty. Be truthful, use your voice for truth. Everything that is happening in our country is very strange. I do not understand how we have reached this point. It is always an untold truth that if your thoughts are quite outspoken and unpopular then you get punished for it. My thoughts are with the students of JNU and you are as brave as I ever could have been. ”
