Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday that the three farm laws, which have led to widespread farmer protests, will be withdrawn. Celebrities like Taapsee Pannu, Richa Chadha, and Sonu Sood have reacted to the news.

Sharing a news clipping, Taapsee Pannu wrote, "Also….. Gurpurab diyaan sab nu vadhaiyaan (Sending Gurupurab wishes to all)."

Richa Chadha wrote, "Jeet gaye aap. Aapki jeet mai sab ki jeet hai. (You won. Our victory comes from yours.)" She was reacting to a tweet that read (as translated), "Farm laws repealed. We won. #FarmersProtest."

Reacting to writer Jairaj Singh's tweet, Richa wrote, "India has lots to learn from its farmers! Salute."

Sonu Sood thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the farmers in his tweet. "This is a wonderful news! Thank you, @narendramodi ji, @PMOIndia , for taking back the farm laws. Thank you, farmers, for raising just demands through peaceful protests. Hope you will happily return to be with your families on the Parkash Purab of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji today," Sood wrote.

Himanshi Khurana shared a post on Instagram with the caption, "Happy Guruparab." In the post, she wrote, "Finally victory is ours, many congratulations to all the farmers. A big gift on Guru Nanak Dev Ji's Prakash Purab. Happy Gurpurab."


India's farmers had been protesting the farm laws for months and several celebrities, including international stars like Rihanna and Amanda Cerny, have shown their support.

Rihanna's tweet about the farmer's protest didn't go down well with many and trolls left sexist and racist remarks under her tweet while asking her to not interfere in 'India's internal matter'.

Taapsee Pannu had then tweeted, "If one tweet rattles your unity, one joke rattles your faith or one show rattles your religious belief then it's you who has to work on strengthening your value system not become 'propaganda teacher' for others," seemingly in Rihanna's support.
