Dia Mirza, who was in Rajkot to perform for a police function, angered local BJP workers, who began shouting slogans of ‘Dia Mirza hai, hai!’
After her supportive statements favouring Aamir Khan and the Narmada Bachao Andolan, the police feared a backlash and requested Dia to leave the city immediately.
Realising the impact and enormity of her words, scared Mirza was escorted out of the city in the middle of the night to Ahmedabad, amid tight security.
She boarded an international connecting flight at 3.10 am, which landed in Mumbai at 5.30 am on Monday. Originally, she was supposed to board an 8.30 am flight to the city.
