Mumbai: Superstar Gippy Grewal on Saturday criticised Bollywood for not standing up for Punjab at a time when the state needs their support for the ongoing farmers' protest. 

Thousands of farmers from Haryana, Punjab, and other states held demonstrations for the tenth consecutive day at Delhi's border points, protesting against the new farm laws.

Gippy Grewal, took to Twitter and wrote that for years Punjab has welcomed Bollywood with open arms but its silence over the issue was painful. 

"Dear Bollywood, every now and then your movies have been shot in Punjab and every time you have been welcomed with open heart. But today when Punjab needs you the most, you didn't show up and speak a word. Disappointed," singer tweeted.

Meanwhile, farmers on Friday announced ‘Bharat Bandh’ on December 8, hardening their position ahead of the fifth round of talks with the government.
