The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and the National Register of Citizens (NRC) have gripped the nation with protests happening across the country. The citizens are voicing their opinions and are leaving no stone unturned to express their disapproval on the issue. Many Bollywood celebrities such as Anurag Kashyap, Dia Mirza, Swara Bhaskar among others have come forward and extended their support towards the protest. However, people are upset with the A-listers of the industry for maintaining silence over the issue.
Now, the King Khan of Bollywood, Shah Rukh Khan is on the radar for being mute on the issue. Recently, during the protest in Delhi’s Shaheen Bagh, the protestors slammed the Zero actor for not speaking out on the issue. They started singing ‘Tujhe Dekha’ from his film Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayange and twisted the lyrics to suggest the actor’s silence over the matter.
In the video, protestors sing ‘Tujhe Dekha to ye jaana sanam, Shah Rukh ho gaya baigana sanam’. In the video, the crowd cheers and claps on the song.

The video has gone insanely viral on social media and has fetched 1.3K retweets and 2.6K likes. The clip has been shared by a Twitter user Md Mubashshir Naseer and he captioned it, “#ShaheenBagh sends its love to SRK in a way never seen before: Tujhe dekha to ye jaana sanam, Shahrukh hogaya begaana sanam Somebody please show this to @iamsrk #ShaheenBaghProtest #ShaheenBaug.” (sic)
Netizens reacted on the video in their own style. One user wrote, “Tera jamia pe chup rahne Ko, library me police ki harkaton pe chup rahne Ko, Nahi bhuloonga main jab Tak hai Jaan jab Tak hai Jaan. Phir tera na AMU pe bolna, DU pe phir se chup ho Jana. Tera JNU pe aankhon ka meech Lena nahi bhuloonga main jab Tak hai Jaan jab Tak hai Jaan”.
Another tweeted, “Why should we show..They are not deaf n dumb. They can do ted talks to motivate the world but cannot defend his own country and costitution.”
