Abhishek Bachchan: I have always been a very proud Indian. Today, we should ALL be ashamed. Will it always take an innocents death for a nation to awake? This is not the country I grew up in as a child, this is not the country I want my daughter to know whilst she grows up!
Akshay Kumar: Our fighter lost the battle of life. Her only fault, she ventured out of the house at night, walking the streets of the national capital expecting to be safe. The day a woman can walk freely on the roads at night is when India will be truly independent. RIP democracy!
Amitabh Bachchan: ‘Amanat’, ‘Damini’ just a name now… her body has passed away, but her soul shall shall forever stir our hearts.
Anubhav Sinha: ASHAMED…. That I belong to a race that commits such heinous acts. My apologies to all women. RIP would be such a farce.
Anupam Kher: This is Death of Human Dignity, Death of Being an Indian, Death of Innocence and This is also Death of A System. India is Heart Broken. RIP.
Arjun Rampal: Amanat, has died and has left this country to hang its head down in shame. I sincerely do hope there will be redemption for her soul.
Boman Irani: She was like a soldier of revolution. If forgotten, the shame on us is greater than the one’s we accuse!

Poonam Pandey: Nirbhaya damini amanat… Whatever ur name is… still cant believe u r no more… its disturbing… :’( :’( She died a death that she didn’t deserve at all. No woman deserves this death, this type of inhumane treatment.
Shabana Azmi: And SHE PASSES AWAY in Singapore. RIP. Our impotence stares us in the face. May SHE become the wake-up call our country needs. We must soul search. Female foeticide; inequal access to nutrition, education, health; no decision making powers; dowry demands; rapes rampant. INDIA WAKE UP.
Shahid Kapoor: The innocent dies while the guilty still live ….. Shameful day sad day …. Reality staring us in our faces …. We need CHANGE
Shahrukh Khan: We couldn’t save u but wot a big voice u have, u brave little girl.That voice is telling us that rape is not an aberration,not a mistake… Rape embodies sexuality as our culture & society has defined it. i am so sorry that i am a part of this society and culture… I am so sorry that I am a man.I promise I will fight with ur voice. I will respect women, so that I gain my daughter’s respect.
Shekhar Kapur: Her greatest betrayal is that we will forget. Political systems’ greatest hope is we will forget. Our only redemption is if we do not forget.
Sonakshi Sinha: The girl isn’t dead. Instead she’s moved to a better place where no rapes happen. Too bad that place doesn’t exist in apna Bharat mahaan.
Sonam Kapoor: Please don’t let her tragic death be in vain. RIP nirbhaya. This has been our countrys most shameful moment. I hope we can atone for what has been done.
Sophie Choudry: Her plight made the nation rise up & address an issue that’s bn ignored too long!She must not become anothr statistic!Kp the momentum alive!
