On Sunday, Rohatgi took to her Twitter account to confirm the news of her arrest. She wrote, "I am arrested by Rajasthan Police for making a video on Motilal Nehru which I made from taking information from Google. Freedom of Speech is a joke."
Rohatgi has made such controversial statements several times
Last year, Rohatgi had claimed that the Kerala floods were a result of God's wrath due to cow slaughter.
Separately, in June this year, she made controversial remarks about the caste of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Thereafter, an NCP leader filed a police complaint against her. She then issued a video apology.
Recently, Rohatgi alleged the Mumbai Police had blocked her on Twitter.
Rohatgi, who made her movie debut in 2002 with Yeh Kya Ho Raha Hai?, has done many Bollywood films like Plan, Rakht, 36 China Town, and Dil Kabaddi. She was also a contestant on second season of popular reality TV show Bigg Boss in 2008.
