Kangana had reacted to cricketer Rohit Sharma's message on farmer's protests with a tweet laced with profanities. Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut lashed out at Rohit Sharma, the vice-captain of the Indian national cricket team in limited-overs formats, for his tweet on the farmers' protests.

In a late-night tweet on Feb. 3, 2021, Sharma said, "India has always been stronger when we all stand together, and finding a solution is the need of the hour. Our farmers play an important role in our nation's well-being and I am sure everyone will play their roles to find a solution TOGETHER. #IndiaTogether"

Reacting to the tweet, Ranaut, who has been vocal against the ongoing protests, called Sharma' dhobi ka kutta' (a Hindi slang) In another tweet, the actor responded to Sharma's statement of solidarity against the rising global criticism of the farm laws.

On Feb. 3, both the tweets by Ranaut were removed by Twitter for "violating Twitter rules" in line with the microblogging site's "range of enforcement options."

Thousands of farmers have been protesting against three farm laws passed by the parliament in September 2020. They have been demanding that the government revoke them and provide a legal guarantee of Minimum Support Price (MSP) for their produce.
