Kunal tweeted and said, ‘Respect and love are not earned. If no one gives, we are not smaller than him. Just give the ground to play, we can jump even higher.
Izzat aur pyaar maanga nahi kamaya jaata hai. Koi na de toh usse hum chhote nahi hote. Bas maidaan khelne ke liye barabar de do chhalaang hum bhi oonchi laga sakte hai ?

Let us tell you that since the suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput, issues like nepotism, camp and outsiders have become hot in Bollywood. Now Bollywood has given its reaction on the tweets of Vidyut and Kunal. Bollywood stars have come out openly in support of Vidyut and Kunal.

It’s a shame … the ones in power will keep perpetuating a f***ed up system that nurtures a select few & empowers them while disempowering and marginalising the majority . This is perpetuated not just by producers but studios / platforms, directors & actors. #bollywoodnepotism https://t.co/qW7ruNq6zy

Yes it does. Sadly & Rightly as Simon & Garfunkel said-After changes upon changes we are still the same. Keep fighting buddy. We’ve never met. But I feel what you’re saying. Stay strong.
