Actor Kangana Ranaut's car was on Friday briefly stopped at Kiratpur Sahib in Punjab's Rupnagar district by a group of people who were demanding an apology from her over her remarks on the farmers' protest against the Centre's farm laws.

Ranaut was returning from Himachal Pradesh when this incident took place.

 

In a video message on her Instagram account, the actor said," As I entered Punjab, a mob attacked my car...They are saying they are farmers."

The police said when her car reached the Bunga Sahib gurdwara near Kiratpur Sahib in Rupnagar, a group of men and women, carrying flags of a farmers outfit, did not allow the cavalcade to move forward.

They were demanding an apology from the actor for her comments against farmers protesting the Centre's three farm laws, they said.

Her car was stopped for about half an hour. 

Ranaut also spoke to some protesting women, the police said. 

After the police persuaded them, the protesters allowed the actor's car to proceed from Rupnagar.

Earlier, the actor was accused of comparing protesting farmers with "Khalistani terrorists". In the past, FIRs have also been registered against her over her remarks.
