Netizens and Bollywood celebs are right now aghast about the violence at the Jawaharlal Nehru University. A call of help to Delhi police was made by several people in the industry after an armed group of men attacked the students and the teachers in the campus. Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker was one of the industry people who condemned the act severely and even tweeted a video message about the same. She broke down to tears as she urged everyone to gather and demand a halt on mob violence. Amid this, a fresh controversy has erupted. Dream Girl director Raaj Shaandilyaa and Swara got into a social media feud. JNU Violence: Sonam Kapoor Takes a Stand Against ‘The Right-Wing Extreme Ideology’ in Her Instagram Story.
The filmmaker wrote a distasteful post on Facebook that read as, ‘sasti chizon pe dhyaan na de, Swara Bhasker se mehenga Dainik Bhasker bikta hai.” This post was screengrabbed by the Veere Di Wedding actress and shared on her Twitter account. She replied to the same by writing, “अगली बार role offer करने और आपकी फ़िल्म के trailer को share करने की request वाले messages भेजने के पहले आप भी ‘सस्ती हरकतों’ के बारे में थोड़ा सोच लेना! :) Good luck @writerraj sir! :) :).” Check out the tweet below.

She also recently hit back at filmmaker Ashoke Pandit who termed her as ‘urban naxal’ and accused her of abusing police. She replied saying, “Yes sir! The job of the police is to protect unarmed citizens not protect armed goons. If the police beats unarmed protesters for ‘revenge’ and silently watches goons go on a rampage toh sawaal aur shikaayat toh karengey hi na hum. Pretty basic logic. Hate less, use ur brain more.”
Meanwhile, other celebs like Taapsee Pannu, Zoya Akhtar, Reema Kagti, Richa Chadha, Dia Mirza, Sayani Gupta, Gauahar Khan, Vishal Bharadwaj, Anurag Kashyap, Anubhav Sinha, Swanand Kirkire, Hansal Mehta, Rahul Bose etc were seen conducting a peaceful protest in Delhi, reciting poems and slogans.
