Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut who previously faced backlash and boycotts from the Sikh community in Punjab during the Farmers' protests, shared her thoughts on the ongoing matter.

Kangana Ranaut, in her tweet, advised the Sikh community to disassociate themselves from Khalistanis and encouraged more Sikhs to support Akhand Bharat.
She reflected on her own experience of facing protests and boycotts in Punjab due to her stance against Khalistani terrorists.
She expressed concern that Khalistani “terrorism” could tarnish the reputation of the Sikh community and urged Sikhs not to be influenced by such elements.
The actress emphasized the need for the Sikh community to avoid getting "excited or instigated by Khalistani terrorists" and concluded her message with "Jai Hind" (Long Live India).
