Kangana Ranaut, the National Award-winning actor, increased her security after threats of protests erupted at the location where she was shooting for her upcoming Hindi film Dhaakad, the actor announced on February 12.

In her social media post, the actor, who called the incident as the “chronicles of an opinionated woman”, alleged that some Congress workers in Madhya Pradesh carried out protests against her while she was shooting in the state. She wrote that she had to change her vehicle and take a longer route.

This came after the Manikarnika actor on February 2 courted controversy for calling farmers “terrorists” in response to pop-star Rihanna’s statement on the ongoing farmers’ protests.

As a result, a second complaint was filed against Ranaut in Karnataka. Harshvardhan Patil, an advocate, filed a complaint against Ranaut at the Tilakwadi police station at Belagavi in Karnataka.

According to Patil, Ranaut has been trying to provoke people to assault the farmers’ community and their families by making such derogatory remarks.

“If her statement is read keenly or meticulously, it can be seen that by addressing our nation as a vulnerable broken nation. Kangana Ranaut has also insulted the Indian Armed Forces and their capabilities and capacity. Her statements are not only causing insult and annoyance to the farming communities and their families, they are also giving cause for annoyance to our armed forces who have kept our country secured from any so-called vulnerabilities,” said Patil who comes from a farmers family in Belagavi.

The first complaint had been filed in October 2020, when the Karnataka police in Tumakuru filed a case against Ranaut over her tweet regarding the three Farm Bills following the First-Class Judicial Magistrate Court’s order based on a complaint filed by Ramesh Naik, an advocate from Karnataka.

The advocate had sought action on Ranaut’s tweet posted on September 21, 2020 where she had called the protesting farmers as “terrorists”.

Ranaut’s Dhaakad is directed by Razneesh Ghai and features actors Divya Dutta and Arjun Rampal. The first look posters of the actors from the film released in January.
