Celebrities in support of Anna Hazare

Anna Hazare is fast becoming quite a sensation with his staunch stand against corruption, and he sure has influenced the majority of the nation to opt for a way out of corruption, by demanding the passing of the Lokpal Bill. Following Anna Hazare's earlier protests and bowing to his demands, the Government presented its own version of the Lokpal Bill, which Anna Hazare deemed unsatisfactory, and demanded to be revised, but the government wasn't in favour of these changes.

This led to Anna Hazare announcing another fast till his demands for a proper Lokpal Bill are met. However, the government and the politicians were totally against it, and when Anna Hazare went forward with his plans for a fast, he was arrested. This has led to nationwide protests from all quarters, and this time, the members of the film fraternity are also raising their voices in support of Anna Hazare's ideals.

Many film personalities including Siddarth, Trisha Krishnan, Bipasha Basu, Divya Spandana, Shekhar Kapur, Anupam Kher and others have come out in support of Anna Hazare and have condoned his arrest on various platforms. The most popular platform has been Twitter, through which these stars reach out to most of their fans. It is a good thing to note that these film stars do not just confine themselves to their profession, but also involve themselves in current affairs, and are not shy to put forth their views. Three cheers to these personalities!
