He also got into a spat with actress Kangana Ranaut who was involved in another tussle with Diljit Dosanjh who has been vocal about the farmers’ issue.

Earlier, professional wrestler Dalip Singh Rana, better known by his ring name The Great Khali had backed thousands of farmers who are protesting in Delhi.

“They will buy it for Rs 2 and sell it for Rs 200. The laws will also harm daily wage workers, roadside vendors; the common man will suffer. I will appeal to everyone to support the farmers so that the Centre is forced to accept their demands,” he said adding that “It will be tough for the Centre to deal with the farmers from Haryana and Punjab.”
