Several celebs from the Punjabi entertainment industry including Wamiqa Gabbi, Neeru Bajwa and Jagdeep Sidhu also expressed grief over the shocking incident.
Now, Punjabi Singer and actor Amrit Maan has also emotionally reacted to New York’s suicide case with a video. He shared the video on his Snapchat account. In the video he is seen singing an emotional song against domestic violence.
He also went on to call the New York’s incident shameful and asked girls to speak up against the cruelty. In the video’s caption, Amrit wrote, ‘Stop domestic violence…ikk aurat te hath chakkna mardaangi nahi…Speak up girls.. #stopabuse #Newyork .. kise di zindagi nu enna nark na bnaao..

Amrit Maan sung, “Ho dum mera nit ghutde aa Nishaan jo teri kutt de aa (×2), Dhidh ch bacha rakhi aan jihnu nitt thakrauna tu… Taan vi Mard Kahauna Tu (×2), Jag ch mard kahauna tu”.
