Recently, Diljit Dosanjh slammed Kangana Ranaut over her tweet against an elderly Sikh woman who participated in the farmers’ protests. He ended his Twitter exchange with Kangana with a tweet that read, “Kangana Ranaut is known to divert attention from the issues at hand. The issue is about unfair Farm Bill and we stand with farmers in peaceful solidarity. If one wants to fix their Karma, they must apologise to the mothers of Punjab.”
