Actor-politician Kangana Ranaut lashed out at Bollywood for not commenting on her slap row. On June 6, Kangana was allegedly slapped by a CISF officer during a security check-in at Chandigarh airport as she left for New Delhi. After calling out Bollywood's silence on the matter, the actor deleted her Instagram story.

Kangana's now-deleted Instagram story about the slap row read: "Dear film industry, you all are either celebrating or are totally mum on the airport attack on me remember if tomorrow if you walking disarmingly on some street of your country or anywhere else in the world and some Israeli / Palestinian hits you or your children just because you tried to bring eyes to Rafah or stood up for Israeli hostage... then you will see I will be fighting for your rights of free speech, if someday you wonder why I am where I am remember you are not me (sic)."

Kangana Ranaut claimed that she was heading to the boarding point after the security check when CISF officer Kulwinder Kaur allegedly argued with and slapped her at the frisking area.

Sources suggest that Kangana's controversial remarks about women in Punjab during the farmers' agitation may have provoked the alleged slap.

Following the incident, constable Kulwinder Kaur was suspended immediately, and an FIR was filed against her, according to CISF officials. A probe panel has also been established to investigate Kangana's allegations.

Later, Kangana Ranaut posted a video message on social media. She said, "I am safe, I am perfectly fine. The slapping incident that happened at Chandigarh Airport occurred during the security check. When I completed the security check and was waiting to pass the woman security officer, she came towards me, hit me, and started abusing me. When I asked why she did it, she said she supports the farmers. I am safe, but my concern is how to handle this shocking rise in terror and violence in Punjab."
