Though some celebs have spoken up about the farmers’ protests, a lot of Bollywood Biggies have remained silent.
Recently, a video went viral after Ajay Devgn’s car was blocked by a 28-year-old man, who questioned the actor about his stand on the protests.
As per the Tribune report, the guy in question was identified as Rajdeep Singh, from Santosh Nagar, who is a driver originally hailing from Punjab. Mumbai Police said that Rajdeep blocked Devgn’s car outside Film City in Goregaon, reportedly demanding to know why he had not spoken out in support of farmers.
“This guy is against Punjab. Punjab has given him food. How is he able to digest his food? How can you be against Punjab? You should be ashamed. You have been wearing turbans in movies with so much pride? Why aren’t you ashamed? Are you going to run me over? Why can’t he come out of the car and talk?” yelled Rajdeep, heckling Ajay Devgn.
Soon afterwards, Devgn’s bodyguard Pradeep Indrasen Gautam lodged a complaint and Rajdeep Singh was arrested under IPC sections 341 (wrongful restraint) 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation), as per Senior Inspector Dharmendra Kamble of Dindoshi police station.
