Bollywood reactions on Article 370 of Kashmir

Several Bollywood celebrities have reacted to Home Minister Amit Shah’s announcement that the Narendra Modi government intends to repeal Article 370 of the Constitution, which grants special status to the state of Jammu & Kashmir. Actors such as Kangana Ranaut, Dia Mirza, Pooja Bedi, Zaira Wasim, Anupam Kher, Raveena Tandon, Sanjay Suri, director Onir, writer Chetan Bhagat and others have taken to Twitter to share their opinions about the developing story.

The move, as well as the possibility of J&K being bifurcated into two Union Territories, has been met with criticism by the opposition, and several Kashmiri leaders such as Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah have been put under house arrest. Tensions arose in J&K after a security incident.
