In the wake of controversial Agriculture Bill passed by the Indian government leading to farmers’ protests all over the country, a Punjabi film production house – Rhythm Boyz Entertainment – has removed the songs of all their films from Jio Saavn Digital store owned by Reliance Group.
Farmers believe that the newly passed three Agriculture laws will benefit big corporates like Reliance instead of the actual farmers.
Rhythm Boyz Entertainment owned by singer/actor Amrinder Gill’s brother Karaj Gill has been behind blockbuster Punjabi movies like Bambukat, Angrej, Lahoriye, Chal Mera Putt series, Love Punjab and more.
While the production house has already extended support to the farmers sitting at protest at New Delhi’s Singhu border, its decision to remove all its content from Jio Saavn store has given a new boost to the Farmers movement against the laws.
“Most of the content has already been removed from the Jio Saavn Digital Store and the instructions to remove the rest have already been given. We are extending full unconditional support to our farmer fraternity,” said Karaj Gill, the owner of Rhythm Boyz Entertainment.
It has been almost three weeks now that the farmers, not only from Punjab but others states like Uttar Pradesh and Haryana are protesting against the new Agriculture laws.
Several Punjabi artistes have shown their unconditional support including Diljit Dosanjh, Ammy Virk, Gippy Grewal, Nimrat Khaira, Sargun Mehta, Tarsem Jassar, Ranjit Bawa and many more.
Earlier the farmers leaders were supposed to have a meeting with the Indian cabinet ministers on 9th December but the meeting was called off as the farmers’ dealers didn’t like the offer made by Home Minister Amit Shah.
Now the issue has reached a deadlock and the farmers are considering to make the protest even more intense and larger.
When Kangana Ranaut, made light of the Farmers’ movement by calling certain people as terrorists, singer/actor Diljit Dosanjh gave her some befitting replies. Dosanjh was well-supported by other Punjabi artistes like Ranjit Bawa, Himanshi Khurana and Gippy Grewal.
According to certain news portals, in return Kangana Ranaut has blocked Himanshi Khurana and Ranjit Bawa from her Twitter profile.
