Kangana Ranaut and Diljit Dosanjh have declared a war of words on Twitter. And it all started when Kangana misidentified an elderly woman at the ongoing farmer’s protest as Bilkis Banos, fondly known as Shaheen Bagh Dadi. She had tweeted, “Ha ha ha, she is the same dadi who featured in Time magazine for being the most powerful Indian... And she is available in 100 rupees. Pakistani journos have hijacked international PR for India in an embarrassing way. We need our own people to speak for us internationally.”
Though Kangana deleted the tweet shortly after realising her mistake, her gesture did not sit well with singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh. He shared a video of the woman who had appeared in the protest, Mahinder Kaur, and asked Kangana to respect the elderly. He tweeted, "Respected MAHINDER KAUR JI Ah Sunn La Ni With Proof @KanganaTeam Banda Ena V Ni Anna Hona Chaida.. Kush v Boli Turi jandi aa .. (Listen to this proof, @KanganaTeam. One should not be this blind. She keeps says anything).”
Ideally, one should have accepted the mistake and moved on, but Kangana being… well, Kangana, decided to go ahead and engaged in an ugly spat with the Good Newwz actor. In one of her tweets, she called Diljit as Karan Johar’s paltu (pet) and asked him to stop the drama. Diljit retaliated and asked the Tanu Weds Manu actress if she too is the pet of every person she has worked with.
Ooo Karan johar ke paltu, jo dadi Saheen Baag mein apni citizenship keliye protest kar rahi thi wohi Bilkis Bano dadi ji Farmers ke MSP ke liye bhi protest karti hue dikhi. Mahinder Kaur ji ko toh main janti bhi nahin. Kya drama chalaya hai tum logon ne? Stop this right now. https://t.co/RkXRVKfXV1— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) December 3, 2020

Well, as you can see, the fight escalated rather quickly and soon before we knew, things turned from bad to ugly. Obviously, with so much drama on the plate, Twitterati flooded the micro-blogging site with their opinions and memes. While some openly chose sides, some were there just to enjoy the whole fiasco. Take a look
Liberals are actually celebreting this sexist singer #diljitdosanjh because he spoke against #KanganaRanaut and threatened her to come to Punjab by playing the regional card.— Vagabond (@ExMachina1196) December 3, 2020

So #DiljitDosanjh is not only famous for his sexist songs & mysognist films, but also a known Khalistan sympathizer.#KanganaRanaut was wrong in her dadi tweets, but these people don't have any moral high ground to school her.#सब_पर_भारी_कंगना pic.twitter.com/xfoI4JIb9J— Vagabond (@ExMachina1196) December 3, 2020
We aren't sure what the outcome of this verbal spat will be or if there will be any outcome at all. Diljit isn't the first Punjabi star to get into an argument with Kangana over her views on the farmer's protest. Recently, former Bigg Boss 13 contestant Himansha Khurrana also slammed the actress for her controversial tweets and as a result, Kangana blocked Himanshi on social media. Whether she will do the same with Diljit, is yet to be seen.
