Auto Driver Stops Ajay Devgn’s Car for 15 Minutes

Ajay Devgn's car was stopped in Mumbai today for around 15 minutes by a man who was apparently upset with the actor last month backing the Central government who against the farmers protest.

Thousands of farmers, mainly from Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, have been protesting for months against the Centre's agriculture laws near three Delhi borders.

The deadlock remains unresolved despite several rounds of Centre-farmer talks.

Pop singer Rihanna, who has millions of followers on Twitter, tweeted “Why aren't we talking about this".

The Central government responded by saying people must research and properly understand such issues before commenting on it.

Many celebrities – Akshay Kumar, Karan Johar, Sachin Tendulkar, Lata Mangeshkar, etc. supported the government with their tweets. 

Ajay Devgn had also tweeted saying: 

"Don't fall for any false propaganda against India or Indian policies. It's important to stand united at this hour w/o any infighting," 

On 2nd March, Ajay Devgn was in his BMW car outside Film City, Goregaon. A 28-year-old man named Rajdeep Ramesh Singh was driving his autorickshaw when he saw the BMW. Since the glass of the car was not tinted he immediately recognised Ajay. Singh quickly got out of his rickshaw and stopped Ajay’s car. He stood in front of the car and refused to let it pass for 15 minutes.Singh was angry because Ajay had supported the government and was not supporting the farmers. A video of the incident has gone viral. 

In the video the man can be heard saying: "This guy is against Punjab. Punjab has given him food. How is he able to digest his food? How can you be against Punjab? You should be ashamed. You have been wearing turbans in movies with so much pride? Why aren't you ashamed? Are you going to run me over? Why can't he come out of the car and talk?"  

Ajay who is sitting in the passenger seat of the car is seen folding his hands. Another man, who appears to be his security staff, tries to reason with the protester, who refuses to budge.

Finally Ajay’s bodyguards were able to move the man away. The bodyguard contacted the local Dindoshi police and a case was registered against the man.
