Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut’s car was stopped in Punjab’s Kiratpur Sahib on Friday by protesters demanding an apology for her statements against farmers who had campaigned against the law. The center’s controversial agriculture was finally abolished this week.
An ardent supporter of the ruling BJP, Ms. Ranaut has defied the law, regularly calling the thousands of farmers who have camped on the Delhi border for more than a year, terrorists, Khalistanis and “” anti-social elements”.
On Friday, Ms. Ranaut was walking through the area with her security details when her car was stopped by protesters waving flags and shouting slogans.
“I’ve been surrounded by a mob here. They’re abusing me and threatening to kill me,” she claimed in a video posted on her Instagram Story.
“This crowd stalks public places. What if I don’t have security with me. The situation here is unbelievable. Am I a politician? What is this behavior?” Mrs. Ranaut said.
