Rock also seeks help from the New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern. He also approached the Delhi High Court wanting a reversal of the government’s decision on his ban. Rock also tweets “Dear @jacindaardern, the Govt. of India has blocked me from entering India separating me from my wife & family in Delhi. They blacklisted me without telling me, giving reasons, or letting me reply. Please watch my struggle https://t.co/dq0Z98SCFw @NZinIndia,”.
Further in the video message, the vlogger said to leave for Dubai and Pakistan eight months ago, but at the airport he has been told cancelation of his Indian visa.
