New Delhi, Apr 11: After being stopped by local police from visiting the National Institute of Technology (NIT) Srinagar, which recently witnessed clashes between local and outstation students, Bollywood actor Anupam Kher gave a special message to the students protesting at the campus.
The Bollywood actor wrote a special message on Twitter, "Dear NIT Srinagar students: My special gift for you. आज ख़ुद आपको देता। कोई बात नहीं, तिरंगा तो हमारे दिलों में है।:) (I wanted to give you the tricolour myself. It's ok. Tricolour resides in our hearts)."
The actor also tweeted his picture with the message.
Anupam Kher was stopped at the Srinagar airport and was not allowed to visit NIT. He was asked to return to Delhi as there were apprehensions of law and order problems.
Kher reached the airport on Sunday morning and was scheduled to visit NIT to "give moral support to the students".
As i return from Srinagar airport, my heart is heavy but i have hope that things will change & become better. I remain an #EternalOptimist.— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPkher) April 10, 2016
Trouble had broken out at the campus when groups of local and outstation students clashed following India's defeat at the hands of West Indies in the semi-final match of T20 Cricket World Cup.
