New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: The shooting of Janhvi Kapoor's upcoming film 'Good Luck Jerry' has once again halted by a group of farmers protesting against the farm laws. The incident took place in Patiala on Saturday when the agitating farmers disrupted the shoot of the film, and demanded a statement from the actress in support of the farmers's protest against the three new laws.
The protesting farmers said that they would not allow the shooting of the film in Patiala until the actress makes a statement in support of their demonstration against the agri laws. Earlier also, the farmers had stopped the shooting of Jahnvi's film in Fatehgarh Sahib district.
"We had earlier told them that we would not allow shooting of the film here. But they still held a shooting. We stopped it again today," a protestor was quoted as saying by PTI.
