Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP-elect Kangana Ranaut, who was allegedly slapped by a CISF constable while she was headed to Delhi for the NDA meeting garnered support from her long-time nemesis and filmmaker Karan Johar. During a recent event in Mumbai, the Dharma honcho was asked about his take on the incident.

Karan said, "I do not support or condone any form of violence verbal or physical." Watch the video below.

Earlier, veteran actor Shabana Azmi shared her views on the incident. "I have no love lost for Kangana Ranaut. But I can't find myself joining this chorus of celebrating 'the slap'. If security personnel start taking the law into their hands, none of us can be safe," Shabana said in a post on X.

However, music composer Vishal Dadlani said that he is willing to offer a job to the CISF constable, who was suspended.

Responding to expressions of support, Kangana wrote on her Instagram stories, "Remember, if you are ok with breaking into someone's intimate zone, without their permission, touching their bodies, and assaulting them, then deep down, you are ok with rape or murder, also because that's also just penetration or stab only what big deal, you must look deeper into your psychological criminal tendencies."

The actress further added: "I suggest please take up yoga and meditation, or else life will become a bitter and burdensome experience, don't carry so much grudge, hate, and jealousy please, free yourself."

Hours after the incident, Kangana released a video on her official Instagram page, where she narrated the details and expressed concern over "rising terrorism and extremism in Punjab." In the video, Kangana said, "I am getting a lot of phone calls from the media and my well-wishers. Firstly, I am safe, I am perfectly fine. The incident that took place happened at Chandigarh airport with security staff. The moment I came out after the security check, a security staff member in another cabin came from the side and hit me on my face and started abusing me."

"When I asked her (CISF jawan), why did she do this, she said that she supported the farmers' protest. I am safe but my concern is that jo aatankwad aur ugarwad Punjab mai bad raha hai (the terrorism and extremism that is rising in Punjab), how do we handle that?" she asked.

On the acting front, Kangana will next be seen in the film ‘Emergency'.
