"They are calling themselves farmers and attacking me"
Kangana Ranaut took to Instagram and claimed that a “mob” attacked her car.
The outspoken actress arrived in Punjab and her car was immediately surrounded by protestors, bringing the vehicle to a halt.
In her Instagram Story, they were heard chanting and Kangana wrote:
“As I entered Punjab, a mob has attacked my car… They are saying they are farmers.”
In another video, Kangana explained that she travelled from Himachal Pradesh and reached Punjab on December 3, 2021.
As soon as she reached the state, protestors surrounded her car.
Kangana claimed: “They are calling themselves farmers and attacking me, abusing me and threatening to kill me.
“Mob lynching is taking place openly in our country.”
She called the situation “unbelievable” and wondered what would happen if she had no security.
Kangana continued: “There are so many police officers here but my car is still not being allowed to leave.
“Am I a politician? Do I run a political party? What is this behaviour? Unbelievable!”
She claimed that people are using her name for political reasons, adding that if the police were not present, there would have been a public lynching.
Kangana added: “Shame on these people.”
Kangana was also seen shaking hands with one protestor, telling her that she studied in Punjab.
She said: “Love conquers all. Everyone warned me against talking to them but I did.”
One elderly woman told Kangana to think before she speaks, prompting Kangana to reply:
“I did not say anything about you, I spoke about those protesting at Shaheen Bagh.”
Kangana later told her fans that she was “completely safe” and was out of the “sticky situation”.
This came after the actress objected to the repeal of the three farm laws.
She previously said: “Sad, shameful, absolutely unfair.
“If people on the streets have started to make laws and not the chosen government in the Parliament, then even this is a jihadi nation.
“Congratulations to all who wanted it like this.”
She had also said that dictatorship is needed “when the conscience of the nation is in deep sleep”.
On the work front, Kangana was last seen as former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in Thalaivii.
She has a number of projects lined up including Dhaakad, Tejas and Emergency.
She is also set to direct and star in Manikarnika Returns: The Legend of Didda.
