Bollywood Comes Out In Support Of Protesting Farmers – Check Out Priyanka, Sonam & Other’s Posts

The fury and compassion was started by Diljit Dosanjh but is now carried on by many Bollywood celebs.

From Sonam Kapoor to Gippy Grewal to Priyanka Chopra, take a look at the celebs’ supportive posts.

#1 Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor Shares Her 'Scariest' Uber Experience in London, Says Was  Shaken After the Ride

Sonam Kapoor is currently in London but her heart’s still in India. “When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.”

Later on, Sonam shared the Instagram story of Anand Ahuja’s post that reads, Some people are supporting the protests, while others are supporting the bill changes… it’s ok to have differing opinions. The reason I shared these posts about the protests today is because I realized that while the idea behind “Free markets”/ letting farmers sell directly is understandable, the farmers; fears of no minimum price guarantee and the potential for private strong-holding and corruption are REAL. Protocols to avoid these outcomes NEED to be established before any changes are implemented.
