Chandigarh, December 4
The unexpected showdown between Diljit Dosanjh and Kangana Ranaut left the Indian Twitterati hooked all day.
The feud started on Wednesday when Diljit lashed out at Kangana for misidentifying an elderly Sikh woman during the farmers’ protests as Bilkis Bano of Shaheen Bagh and, claimed that the woman had joined the protest for Rs 100.
Kangana deleted the tweet after the severe backlash.
This followed an ugly war of words.
Every attack from Ranaut, Dosanjh had a counter-attack in ‘shudh’ Punjabi.
While the heated argument was engaging, most of it was in Punjabi—which led to a major section of Indian clueless, especially with Google missing out on accurate translations.
Then Punjabi Twitter stepped in— and they did not disappoint.
Punjabi is tough. Any translation of this fight?

Do they appear to you as one who will incite violence?
Every word you say is like that, what do you want?
They are like God for us
Did nobody teach you any etiquette of speaking?
Punjabis will teach you how to speak to those who are elder to you https://t.co/3vOMV1Gwn9

“Brainless mannerless person, i’m talking about the mother whose photo you shared saying she can be hired for Rs 100. Have you heard her response or should I send it again? Don’t divert the topic or run away. Your crooked methods may work in Bollywood, won’t work with Punjabis”

Does she have any sense on how to speak to elders? Senior, as if!
