This isn't the first time that the actor has been penalised by the social media platform. Earlier this year, certain restrictions were imposed on her account after she posted an incendiary tweet against Amazon Prime Video series Tandav, in which she said it was ‘time to take (the makers') heads off’ for hurting religious sentiments.

At the time, a Twitter spokesperson told NDTV that Kangana’s tweet was in violation of the platform's Abusive Behaviour Policy, which prohibits ‘targeted harassment of someone, or (inciting) other people to do so’. "We prohibit content that wishes, hopes or expresses a desire for death, serious bodily harm against an individual or group of people and take enforcement action when we identify violations which could include placing an account in read-only mode," they said.

Kangana had tagged Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in retaliation. She had written in a tweet, "My account and my virtual identity might get martyred for the country anytime."
