The shoot of Janhvi Kapoor‘s upcoming film Good Luck Jerry was stalled again by protesting farmers on Saturday in Patiala. This is the third time that this has happened since the film shoot began in Punjab. Janhvi later returned to Mumbai on Saturday evening.
As per a PTI report, farmers demanded a statement from the actor in support of their protest. This was the second time that the film’s shoot had been stalled by the farmers in Patiala. They had also halted the shoot in Fatehgarh Sahib district earlier this month.
“We had earlier told them that they would not allow shooting of the film here. But they still held a shooting. We stopped it again today,” said a protester. “We have no grudge against any person. If she (actor) gives a statement in support of farmers only once, we will allow the shooting,” they added.
Farmers from Punjab, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh have been camping at Delhi’s borders for several weeks, demanding the repeal of the farm laws and a legal guarantee on the minimum support price for crops.
Janhvi was seen at the Mumbai airport on Saturday evening. Earlier during the day, Janhvi had shared a video from the film’s sets on Instagram. It showed her playing cricket with a few children and the film’s crew.
Janhvi was last seen in Netflix’s Ghost Stories and Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. The latter was also surrounded in controversy upon its release. The Air Force had objected to its representation in the movie.
The actor will now be seen in Dostana 2 with Kartik Aaryan and in Roohi Afzana with Rajkummar Rao. She also has Takht, to be directed by Karan Johar, which has been put on the back burner amid the coronavirus pandemic. The film is based o the Mughal royal family and also stars Kareena Kapoor, Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Bhumi Pednekar and Anil Kapoor.
