After Diljit Dosanjh, Amninderpal Singh Virk, better known as Ammy Virk, joined the farmers’ agitation against the new farm bills.
The Punjabi singer-actor was spotted at Singhu Border. He extended his support to farmers. While addressing the farmers, the Punjabi singer sang for them.
This was to lighten the mood of the farmers.

In his speech, he said, that we (farmers) are not asking for anything. We are just refusing to take what the government is offering.
Not only this, several singers have been composing new songs on the current agitation.

Meanwhile, thousands of farmers, mostly from Punjab and Haryana have gathered at various border points of Delhi since November 26 as part of their protest against the Centre’s farm laws.
Dosanjh, who was last week involved in a Twitter spat with actor Kangana Ranaut, shared a black-and-white picture of farmers sitting on roads protesting, ‘Bharat Bandh’ written atop in bold.
“Today is Bharat Bandh #FarmersProtest” he wrote in the caption.
Sharing the same photo on his Twitter account, singer-actor Ammy Virk wrote, “#Today Bharat Bandh #ModiYesOrNo.”
The picture of “Bharat Bandh” was also shared by actor Neeru Bajwa and Gippy Grewal on their respective Twitter handle.
Maan said that he will always stand with the farmers.
“I have a lot to express but will only say this – I’m always with you and will always stand with you. Long live the farmers,” he wrote alongside a photo in which he is hugging a farmer.
Singer-actor Harbhajan Mann shared a picture of a farmland with ‘Jai Kisaan’ written over it and a map of India with a lock.
“Today WE make history!! Today Bharat Bandh,” Mann tweeted. Singer Mika asked the agitating farmers to remain peaceful in their protest.
“I request all the #farmer brothers please keep calm and protest, I don’t want some one else do the mistake and then we face the repercussions as a class of farmers … I’m sure #government will give us the solution.. but please sare shanti hi bana ke rakho (please all of you maintain peace)… sat sri Akal..” he tweeted.
