Kangana, Daljit Dosanjh in Twitter spat over farmers’ protest

The actress called Dosanjh as Karan Johar’s ‘pet’. The war of words erupted after Kangana misidentified an elderly woman saying she was at the protest for ₹100

The actor shifted to Instagram and Koo, after Twitter suspended her account over a vitriolic tweet related to the recent Bengal assembly polls.

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut and actor-singer Daljit Dosanjh were involved in ugly Twitter exchanges on Thursday (December 3) after she misidentified an elderly woman at a farmers’ protest against Centre’s new farm laws.

On Wednesday (December 2), Kangana had misidentified Mahinder Kaur as Bilkis Bano of Shaheen Bagh protests and said she had joined the protest for ₹100. The actress later deleted the tweet after several users, including Dosanjh, slammed her.

The war of words continued on Thursday as well, as Kangana hit out at Dosanjh calling him filmmaker Karan Johar’s “pet”.

“Ooo Karan johar ke paltu, jo dadi Saheen Baag mein apni citizenship keliye protest kar rahi thi wohi Bilkis Bano dadi ji Farmers ke MSP ke liye bhi protest karti hue dikhi. Mahinder Kaur ji ko toh main janti bhi nahin. Kya drama chalaya hai tum logon ne? (Karan Johar’s pet, the grandma who was protesting in Shaheen Bagh for her citizenship, the same grandma was seen protesting with the farmers. I don’t even know who is Mahinder Kaur. What is this new drama?) Stop this right now,” she wrote in a tweet.

“Respected MAHINDER KAUR JI Ah Sunn La Ni With Proof @KanganaTeam Banda Ena V Ni Anna Hona Chaida.. Kush v Boli Turi jandi aa ..(Listen to this proof, @KanganaTeam. One should not be this blind. She keeps saying anything),” he wrote in his tweet.

Mahinder and others at the protest spoke to BBC and said Kangana should work in the fields and for that they would give the actress ₹100. “We will give her ₹100 in the evening,” a woman said in the interview.

According to reports, a legal notice has been sent to Kangana over her tweet on the elderly woman. Advocate Harkam Singh, in his notice, has demanded an apology from her.

“It is to inform you that the said lady is not a fake lady. Her name is Mahinder Kaur and she belongs to Bathinda. She is the wife of farmer Labh Singh Nambardar. She in her life, has always remained connected with fields and filed work and she is the wife of a farmer,” the notice said.
