In one of her previous posts, Khurana had expressed her views on farmers' protest in a video message.

The singer-model, who was part of last year's Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss, urged those taking part in the protests to take proper precautions.

"It's my request to all the people protesting to not forget that we are going through pandemic so please take proper care," she added.

Farmers continued their rail roko (block the trains) agitation in many parts of Punjab on Saturday, 26 September protesting against the farm bills.

The movement of trains in the state remained suspended due to the agitation, with at least 28 passenger trains being cancelled.
