Diljit Dosanjh has been in the spotlight quite lately for his nasty twitter exchange with actor Kangana Ranaut over the farmers' protest and he's again hogged the attention with reportedly a generous donation of Rs 1 crore for buying warm clothes for the protesters. Dosanjh has made the contribution without creating a "big deal" out of it, according to Punjabi singer Singga.
Singga said in Punjabi, "Thank you brother, you gave Rs 1 crore for the farmers, for their warm clothes, and nobody knows. You didn't post about it. Nowadays people can't shut up after donating Rs 10."
Dosanjh has been vocal in his support for the farmers and has urged the government to listen to their demands. He also participated in the protest at the Delhi border on Saturday. The actor also shared a photo of himself at the protest site.
Addressing the farmers at the Singhu border, he said, "Hats off to all of you farmers, you have created a new history. This history would be narrated to future generations. Farmers' issues shouldn't be diverted by anyone."
He added, "I want to request the government- do not divert from the issues. There is no other discussion going on here apart from that related to farmers. Whatever the farmers want, the government should accept. All are sitting peacefully. There is no talk of bloodshed. Everyone twists [facts] on Twitter."
Since the news of his donation came out, there has been a lot of buzz on Twitter regarding the same with some appreciating the actor's gesture and others calling him out for being uninformed and pulling a PR stunt. See what Twitter has to say here.
