This year Diwali was celebrated on big screens with Rohit Shetty’s latest ‘Sooryavanshi’ starring Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif. However, this celebration was seized in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district, as a group of farmers had stopped its screening for their protest against the three farm laws on Saturday.

It was noted that the reason for their displeasure was not the movie in general but was the fact that the ‘Housefull’ actor was not in support of their protest.

According to reports, Activists of the Bharti Kisan Union (Kadian) are following the union’s district president Swaram Dhga who started the march from a local Shaheed Udham Singh Park to Swaran cinema, going against the screening of ‘Sooryavanshi’. Protesters were also seen venting out their frustration by tearing the movie posters that were outside the cinema halls.
