Mumbai: Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, along with a slew of other prominent personalities from the film industry, has voiced support for actress-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut after she was reportedly slapped by a CISF constable at the Chandigarh airport.

The incident unfolded as Kangana was en route to Delhi, just a day after her victory in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections from Mandi, Himachal Pradesh, as a BJP candidate.

In a show of solidarity, various celebrities, including Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Zoya Akhtar, Soni Razdan, Arjun Kapoor, and Prajakta Koli, have lent their voices to condemn the assault. Additionally, figures such as Anupam Kher, Mika Singh, Raveena Tandon, and Shekhar Suman have spoken out against the act of violence.

Renowned journalist Faye D’Souza took to Instagram to express her disapproval of the incident, emphasizing that violence is never the answer, especially in a country built on the principles of non-violence espoused by Mahatma Gandhi. She underscored the danger inherent in security personnel resorting to violence while in uniform, highlighting the potential consequences if dissenting voices were routinely met with physical aggression.

Hrithik Roshan, Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Zoya Akhtar, and Soni Razdan, among others, showed their support by liking D’Souza’s post.

In response to those backing the CISF personnel involved, Kangana Ranaut penned a detailed note, drawing attention to the repercussions faced by criminals despite their underlying motivations. She cautioned against aligning with the emotional impulses that drive criminal behavior, stressing the importance of upholding the law.

As the controversy unfolds, the entertainment industry continues to grapple with questions surrounding violence, accountability, and the responsibility of those in positions of authority.
