Rock had participated in anti-CAA protests in 2020 and had also tweeted about it. Netizens believes that this may be a reason for the cancellation of his visa in India.
He said he has approached many officials in Dubai and Wellington, the capital of New Zealand but no one helped him.
His wife Manisha has visited the office of home ministry in Delhi many a time but no help was extended to her.
Rock and Manisha have filed a petition in the Delhi High Court seeking restoration of his visa. He has also started an online petition to garner public support for his cause.
