#MigrantLivesMatter, #MinorityLivesMatter, #PoorLivesMatter, posted Abhay Deol on Instagram. Not the one to mince words, he called out Bollywood and middle-class India for not taking a stand on matters that affect the country.
Last week, the US erupted into nationwide protests over the killing of George Floyd, an African-American man, while in police custody. #BlackLivesMatter re-entered the discourse and some stars in Bollywood felt like they had to chime in. The same celebrities who’ve remained largely mum throughout the migrant crisis unfolding in India for two months now, who did not speak up during the anti-CAA protests, who’ve turned a blind eye while minorities in India have faced discrimination.
