Diljit Dosanjh took to his Insta-story and shared a picture of American singer Rihanna without any caption to express his gratitude after she tweeted in support of the protesting farmers in India. The picture was accompanied by her song, ‘Run This Town’.
Diljit also shared a Punjabi proverb on Twitter and wrote: “Jaat Di Kohr Kirli, Shateeriyan Nu Jaffe… (which in English means that your status in life is rather insignificant but you know how to talk big).”
Jaat Di Kohr Kirli
Shateeriyan Nu Jaffe…

No sooner did she tweeted, a number of Bollywood celebrities like Richa Chadha, Shibani Dandekar, director Hansal Mehta reacted to Rihanna’s show of support.
Diljit had also joined the protest last year at the Singhu border near Delhi. He had taken to his Twitter handle and wrote, ‘We have only one request to Centre..please fulfil the demands of our farmers. Everyone is sitting here peacefully and the entire country is with farmers’.
Diljit and Kangana had a war of words last year after Kangana opposed the protesting farmers.
