Chandigarh, Dec 3 (IANS) The car of actress Kangana Ranaut was stopped and surrounded by protesting farmers in Punjab's Kiratpur Sahib town on Friday, demanding an apology from her for comments against the women farmers.
The incident took place close to Bunga Sahib gurdwara on the Chandigarh-Una highway. She was travelling from Manali to Chandigarh to board a flight to Mumbai.
Video footage showed the farmers carrying their organization flags surrounded the Mercedes car and demanded an apology from her. Police personnel were also seen there, convincing the protesters to clear the road.
In the video, the actress said, "I have left from Himachal and arrived in Punjab because my flight was cancelled. My car has been surrounded by a mob who are calling themselves farmers and are attacking me. They are hurling abuses at me and threatening to kill me."
"In this country this kind of mob lynching is happening openly, if I didn't have security then what would have happened? The situation is unbelievable. If the cops wouldn't have been here then they would be lynching openly. Shame on these people!"
In another video, Kangana was seen interacting with a woman from the crowd and holding her hand. "I am completely safe and have left from there. Thanks to Punjab police and CRPF," she added.
Kangana was disappointed after Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that the government is scrapping the three controversial farm laws.
The plea said Kangna has made these utterances on a public platform of social media like Instagram. "This post on Instagram in short means and infers 'Sikh farmers as Khalistani Terrorists, upholds the genocide of 1984', means that Sikhs should be treated as a lower race like unwanted mosquitoes and they need a Guru like Mrs. Indira Gandhi.
Preparations for the much-hyped marriage between Bollywood stars Vicky Kaushal and Katrina Kaif have begun at the Six Senses Fort Barwara located in Sawai Madhopur district in Rajasthan. An event management company has been entrusted with the responsibility of making all the necessary arrangements for the big day.
The film, directed by Kabir Khan, is a biographical sports drama based on the 1983 World Cup-winning Indian cricket team. '83', which also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jiiva, Saqib Saleem, Harrdy Sandhu, Ammy Virk, Pankaj Tripathi, Boman Irani, Nishant Dahiya and Sahil Khattar, is all set to release on December 24.
The plot has ample face-offs and action sequences that are astutely choreographed. The fights that feature Salman Khan are mostly captured in slow motion, probably to camouflage the hero's waning spirit.
Delhi Assembly's Committee on Peace and Harmony on Thursday summoned Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut to depose before it on December 6 (at 12 noon) over her recent social media post in which she had labelled farmers protesting against Centre's three farm laws as "Khalistani terrorists".
