Anurag shared a tweet on his page, which read, "I have immense respect for Akshay Kumar. It must be extremely difficult to be trained in martial arts with a spine missing."

Several Bollywood celebrities posted opinions all through Monday on the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the countrywide tension it has unleashed, which was triggered off after Sunday's protests at Delhi's Jamia Millia Islamia University.
