The Madhya Pradesh police has set up thick security around Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut after some state Congress leaders threatened her that they would not allow her shoot for a film if she did not apologise to farmers over her tweets.
Kangana is currently shooting for her upcoming film Dhaakad in the Sarni area of Betul district, Madhya Pradesh. The MP cops have now beefed up security in the area.
Talking to PTI over phone, Sarni City Superintendent of Police (CSP) Abhay Ram Choudhary said, "Security has been tightened for the actress after MP Home Minister Narottam Mishra directed Betul Superintendent of Police Simala Prasad to do so."
Police personnel equipped with batons and firearms are deployed around the coal handling plant (CHL) near a power project, where the shooting is on, he added.
"Police will man gate numbers two and four of the CHL, from where actors usually enter the shooting venue," Choudhary said.
Moreover, an inspector has been assigned to oversee the safety at the resort, located around 45 kms from Sarni town, where Kangana is staying during the shoot. The police officer informs that her shoot at Sarni would end on February 17, 2021.
"We will ensure that she does not face any disturbance during the shoot," the CSP added.
Kangana Ranaut invited trouble over her recent tweets on the ongoing farmers protest. The Congress leaders had alleged that Ranaut had maligned farmers.
Recently, Twitter deleted some of Ranaut's controversial tweets over the farmers's protest.
