As famous actors Diljit Dosanjh and Kangana Ranaut got engaged in an ugly war of words over the farmers’ protest, their Twitter spat soon became a new meme trend on social media.
It all began when Diljit slammed Kangana for misidentifying an elderly Sikh woman, who had joined the ongoing farmers’ protest, as Shaheen Bagh protester Bilkis Bano. The Punjabi actor-singer had also shared a video of the elderly lady in question, saying that she was Mahinder Kaur.
“Listen to this with proof, Kangana. One shouldn’t be so blind… You are saying just about anything,” Diljit, who hails from Dosanjh Kalan village near Punjab’s Jalandhar, said.
Later, Kangana deleted her post but also hit back at Diljit by calling him Bollywood director 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 drama)? Stop this right now,” tweeted Kangana.
While the two actors were busy in the vitriolic exchange, here’s how Twitterati reacted:
Meanwhile, singer Mika Singh has also slammed Kangana for misidentifying an elderly Sikh woman as Bilkis Bano of Shaheen Bagh.
“I used to have immense respect for @KanganaTeam, I even tweeted in support when her office was demolished. I now think I was wrong, Kangana being a woman you should show the old lady some respect. If you have any etiquette then apologise. Shame on you,” tweeted Mika on Thursday.
Diljit has, meanwhile, received several Bollywood celebrities’ support.
