Former minister in the previous Kamal Nath government in Madhya Pradesh, Sukhdev Panse has made a derogatory remark against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, calling her a 'Naachney Gaane waali' (which loosely translates into a cheap version of a public entertainer).
Ranaut on Friday evening reacted to Panse's derogatory remark with a strong reply based on an IANS tweet about Panse's comment earlier.
"Whoever this fool is does he know I am no Deepika Katrina or Alia.... I am the only one who refused to do item numbers, refused to do big hero ( Khan /Kumar) films which made entire Bullywoodiya gang men +women against me. I am a Rajput woman I don't shake a** I break bones," Kangana wrote on Twitter.
Panse said Ranaut, who insulted the farmers protesting at various borders of New Delhi, had met with a Congress-led protest during the shoot of her upcoming spy thriller Dhaakad, leading to police action on the political party workers.
When some leaders from the Congress opposed her, the state police resorted to physically assaulting the Congress workers.
Kangana was at Sarni in the Betul district where the Congress protest took place last week.
Police used force on the Congress leaders and also registered cases against them.
On Thursday, Congress workers took out a rally under the leadership of Panse and submitted a memorandum to the District Collector.
Protesting the police action and FIRs registered, Panse said the police action was against democracy.
The Congress has been supporting the farmers agitation against the three contentious central farm laws.
"The police should not act as a puppet of Kangana as governments keep changing. There should be a fair investigation of the police's action against the Congress workers and no action should be taken against our party workers till the probe is complete," Panse added.
More than 250 Congress workers on February 12, protested at Sarni, where Ranaut was shooting. They demanded that she apologise for her tweets against farmers.
In response, Kangana tweeted: "Police protection has been increased around me as Congress workers in MP held a protest to stop my shoot. Congress MLAs are saying they are protesting on behalf of farmers. Which farmer gave them such power of attorney? Why can't they protest for themselves?"
This comes after she made controversial remarks about "Tandav" creators through a post. In the now-deleted tweet, Kangana had said that it was "Time to take their heads off", for allegedly insulting Hindu gods in the web series.
On the birth anniversary of Sushant Singh Rajput, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut said she regrets not being there to protect him from the toxicity of Bollywood, and took digs at Karan Johar, Mahesh Bhatt and Aditya Chopra.
Some tweets of actor Kangana Ranaut were deleted on Thursday by Twitter; scores of widows of farmers staged a noisy protest in Yavatmal to slam the Bollywood actress for her "anti-farmer remarks," hit her effigy with shoes.
Actress Kareena Kapoor Khan treated her fans on Sunday with a picture of her two boys and wish them a Happy Mother's Day .
She also starred as the fiancee to Tom Hanks' character in the comedy "Bachelor Party,” and as Jerry Seinfeld's girlfriend in a 1991 episode of "Seinfeld."
