NEW DELHI: Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskar has openly participated in protests against the Citizenship Amendment Bill. In a recent video, however, she appealed to people to come out in large numbers outside the main gate of Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University as the students were attacked by a few goons on Sunday, 5th January and it seems people did listen to her. 

The actress took to her social media handle to post a video of herself requesting people to come out in support of JNU. She also became emotional as it was personal for her because her parents live on campus. Along with the video, she wrote, "Urgent appeal!!!! To all Delhiites PLS gather in large numbers outside the Main Gate of JNU campus on Baba Gangnath Marg.. to pressure the govt. & #DelhiPolice to stop the rampage by alleged ABVP masked goons on JNU campus. PLS PLS share to everyone in Delhi! 9pm on 5th. Jan."

A few hours after, she again posted a video of the university's campus showing that the people were safe there for now. Expressing her heartfelt thanks to the people, she wrote, "My mom is safe. JNU is peaceful for now. the gates are open! Eternal gratitude to the citizen protestors of Delhi who showed up at JNU main gate earlier tonight- you saved JNU! Thanks to the media & reporters who risked their own safety & showed Us what terror was unleashed 2day."

Previously, the Veere Di Wedding actress found herself in the mid of a controversy yet again for saying that she does not have any proof of her Indian citizenship and thus was criticized heavily.
