Actress Kangana Ranaut’s recent remarks against the farmers' protest have sparked several controversies and debates on social media. While her views are being opposed by netizens and celebrities like Diljit Dosanjh, she has now faced the wrath of a group of widows of farmers in Maharashtra.
According to a report in IANS, scores of widows of farmers came together as they retaliated strongly against Kangana’s remarks and burnt her effigies in Maharashtra's Yavatmal district. Reportedly, the women were protesting against the farm laws, which later turned violent as they burned an effigy of Kangana and hit it with shoes to express their anger for her 'insulting statements'.
The women protestors also carried banners and boards which read: 'Yes, we are farmers but not terrorists', referring to Kangana's recent tweets against the farmers protesting at the Delhi border.
In addition, the protests have also called for a boycott on all Kangana Ranaut films until she does not withdraw her remarks and also demanded an unconditional apology to the farmers.
Social activist Smita Tiwari along with farm activists like Anil Tiwari, Ankit Naitam, Sunil Raut, Suresh Talmale, Neel Jaiswal, Manoj Chavan, Sandeep Jajulwar, Chandan Jainkar, Pradeep Kosare, Bablu Dhurve, and Ashutosh Ambade participated in the protests.
Meanwhile, Kangana has been engaging in social media wars with other Bollywood actors like Diljit Dosanjh, Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker among others.
