The actor was allegedly ousted from a popular Indian show because of his presence at the protest

Television and film actor Sushant Singh has visited the Jamia Millia University to express his solidarity with the protesting students against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, and the National Register of Citizens (NRC).

The actor, who has been vocal in his condemnation of the atrocities perpetrated on students, went to the university on Saturday.

 Singh is reportedly expected to join the protests at New Delhi's Shaheen Bagh next, reports the Indian online entertainment television channel Zoom Tv.

The actor is among the Bollywood celebrities active in condemning the CAA. He has used his Twitter account to criticize the violence at various educational institutions across the country. 

While taking part in an anti-CAA protest in Mumbai, Sushant Singh said: "We are people of this country [India] and such acts [CAA] are tarnishing the image of our country."

A few days back, there were rumours that the acclaimed television actor would be removed from the show "Savdhaan India" because of his presence at the protest. 

In his view of the matter, he tweeted that it was a very small price he would pay. How else would he face Indian leaders like Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru?

However, the channel dismissed the rumours, saying the actor's contract had ended and so he had to be replaced.

In response, Sushant said: "The channel has the right to change the host, but I wasn't given any reason." 

Earlier, several other actors, including Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Swara Bhasker, Anubhav Sinha, Richa Chadha and Renuka Shahane, among others, were vocal in expressing their political opinions on the student protests. 

Recently, reputed actor Deepika Padukone appeared at Jawaharlal Nehru University in a show of support for the students of the university.
