Aamir Khan-Kareena Kapoor starrer ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is again trending on Twitter and it is not for the right reasons. Netizens are using the hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha on Twitter, asking people not to watch the film.
Apparently, some Twitter users went through the archives and found Aamir’s controversial “India’s growing intolerance” statement and circulated it on the micro-blogging site. In the past, some controversial statements of Kareena are also coming out online. Well, this is not the first time that netizens have expressed anger towards the upcoming film. Earlier, when the makers of the film launched the trailer in May, the same hashtag was trending.
Talking about the controversial statement, in 2015, Aamir Khan said in an interview, “Our country is very tolerant, but there are people who spread ill-will”. His wife Kiran Rao also made headlines by saying that she considered leaving the country for the safety of her children. Netizens have called him ‘anti-Hindu’ and ‘anti-national’, circulating his quotes and videos from old interviews with the hashtag #LaalSinghChaddha.
Check out some of the tweets here: Recently, the makers announced that the film will be available on OTT after 6 months of its release. The film is set to hit the theaters on August 11.
Laal Singh Chaddha, produced by Aamir Khan Productions, Kiran Rao and Viacom18 Studios, also stars Mona Singh and Chaitanya Akkineni. It is the official remake of the Academy Award-winning 1994 film Forrest Gump, which starred Tom Hanks in the lead role. (ANI)
