Actress Khushbu, who recently joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), has now been arrested by the Police, while she was on her way to Chidambaram to participate in a protest. Thol Thirumavalavan, the President of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK), speech about women quoting Manusmrithi created a huge controversy among the people and political parties. Opposing his remarks against women, BJP party organised an agitation at Chidambaram and a lot of notable leaders from the party were expected to take part. However, actress Khushbu was arrested this morning near Muttukadu (ECR) by the Chengalpattu Police. A few other BJP party members were also arrested along with Khushbu.

The police officials clarified that the arrest is only a preventive measure due to the ongoing pandemic and added that the arrested party members would be released soon. The spread of Covid 19 is getting serious and intense with every passing day and that is said to be the reason for arresting Khushbu and other party members. After getting arrested, Khushbu took to her Twitter page and posted, "Arrested.. been taken in police van. we will fight till our last breath for the dignity of women. H'ble PM @narendramodi ji has always spoken about the safety of women and we walk on his path. We will never bow down to the atrocities of few elements out there. BHARAT MATA KI JAI!".

Talking in a video, Khushbu said, "The police arrested us when we entered Muttukadu. We thought they would permit us until Cuddalore, but we were stopped and arrested in Muttukadu itself. This protest is for condemning Thirumavalavan's comment against women. I've always addressed him as 'anna' on the grounds of respect, but I am not sure if I will be able to call him the same way after his comments on women. Why is he talking unnecessary things and garnering attention? He should apologize for his words and that is when we would stop. Maybe, the police can arrest us today, but we will not stop until he apologizes for what he said. Our protest will definitely continue,". It is said that Khushbu and the other party members would be released in the later half of the day. This arrest has created a huge buzz on social media.

On the acting front, Khushbu will next be seen playing one of the female leads in Superstar Rajinikanth's Annaatthe, directed by Siva. Khushbu is also involved in the production of films and television serials under the banner of Avni Cinemas. For now, check out Khushbu's latest tweet and video after getting arrested below:
