On Twitter, netizens are demanding an audience to boycott Laal Singh Chaddha. Recently, the tag – ‘Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’ trended on Twitter as people demanded a ban on the Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer movie. LSC is an official remake of the very popular Hollywood movie Forrest Gump. Are you wondering why would people be angry with the movie, even before it hit the cinema halls?
Netizens have dug out Aamir Khan’s old statement that caused massive controversy in the past.
But, this isn’t the first time that the ‘Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’ hashtag has trended on social media. Even when the movie trailer was released people took to social media to ask the audience to boycott the movie.
In 2015, Aamir Khan made a statement about India becoming intolerant, and that upset many netizens across the country. In his interview, he said that he along with his former wife Kiran Rao want to leave the country as it was growing intolerant.
Never forget, never forgive
How can we watch movie of Anti-Hindu, Anti-Bharat, Pro-Turkey actor?
Though Aamir had then clarified that he never called India intolerant but rather called out people who spread ill-will against religions. He said, “Our country is very tolerant, but there are people who spread ill-will…Those who speak of breaking up this vast country, such people are present in all religions, only Modiji can stop them. After all, Modiji is our PM, we have to tell him”.
Not just because of Aamir Khan, netizens are asking people to boycott the movie because of Kareena Kapoor as well. In one of her interviews, she made a problematic statement about nepotism. She blamed the audience for nepotism and asked the audience not to watch their movies. She said: “The audience has made us, no one else has made us. Same people pointing fingers are the ones who have made these nepotistic stars right? Aap jaa re ho na film dekhne? Mat jao. Nobody has forced you. So I don’t understand it. I find this whole discussion completely weird.” The problematic statement irked many as star kids refuse to acknowledge the prevalent nepotism in the Bollywood industry.
What would be the fate of LSC? Only time can tell. But, one thing is for sure struggling Bollywood desperately needs LSC to create magic at box office. What do you think about these controversies and tag – “Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’? Tell us in the comments below.
