Actors Priyanka Chopra and Sonam Kapoor have come out in improve of protesting farmers. Farmers across the country have been staging a massive protest against the government’s new agriculture laws, which they fear will leave them at the mercy of big corporations.
“Our farmers are India’s Food Soldiers. Their fears wish to be allayed. Their hopes wish to be met. As a thriving democracy, we will have to be sure that this crises is resolved sooner than later,” Priyanka wrote on Twitter.

Sonam took to Instagram to share a series of pictures from the ongoing farmers’ protest at the side of a quote by Daniel Webster, “When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, due to this fact, are the founders of human civilization.” Her hsuband, businessman Anand Ahuja, showed solidarity with the farmers by sharing a picture of a protesting farmer. Then again, he did not add any caption.
Many other celebrities have also backed the farmers. Actor-singer Diljit Dosanjh joined the protest at the Delhi border on Saturday and appealed to the government, saying, “We have only one request from the Centre… please fulfil the demands of our farmers. Everyone is sitting here peacefully and all the country is with farmers. This agitation is approximately farmers. Things are twisted on Twitter but the truth is that farmers are protesting peacefully, nobody is talking approximately bloodshed here.”
“No farmers = Barren land ! Our land is a Blessed one , so will have to be OUR Farmers’ lives !!!! Requesting the government to understand their issues and favour them,” actor Gauahar Khan wrote on Twitter.

Actor Riteish Deshmukh had tweeted earlier this week, “Whether you eat today, thank a farmer. I stand in solidarity with each and every farmer in our country. #JaiKisaan.” Filmmakers Hansal Mehta and Anubhav Sinha had also supported the farmers’ protest.
Actor Chitrangda Singh had written on Twitter, “We wish to retain them feeling safe…might sound egocentric but for our own needs. They feed us and work tirelessly with their sweat and blood. #respectfarmers.” She had added a hashtag – ‘farmers are lifeline’ – at the side of the tweet.
