Top Bollywood personalities, including Hrithik Roshan, Alia Bhatt, Sonakshi Sinha, Zoya Akhtar, Soni Razdan, Arjun Kapoor, and Prajakta Koli, have lent their support to actress-turned-politician Kangana Ranaut, who was slapped by a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable at the Chandigarh airport.

Kangana, who was traveling to New Delhi after her Lok Sabha elections win from Himachal Pradesh's Mandi constituency, was allegedly slapped by Kulwinder Kaur. Post the incident, Kaur was suspended and an FIR was registered against her based on a written complaint by CISF officials.

Kaur was unhappy with Kangna’s comment on Punjab ladies during the farmers’ agitation against the three farm laws, suggesting they participated in the protest for money.

Journalist Faye D’Souza shared a post on Instagram condemning the slap incident, stating, “Violence can never be the answer... it is particularly dangerous when security personnel react violently while in uniform". The post was liked by Hrithik Roshan, Alia Bhatt, Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha, Zoya Akhtar, and Soni Razdan, among many others.

Veteran actress Shabana Azmi expressed disappointment with those who "celebrated" the slapping 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,” she wrote on X.

Kangana also penned down a strong note against those supporting the slap incident. She questioned the “criminal tendencies” of such people and asked if they would also be okay if somebody is raped or murdered.
