Recently, the trailer of Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer Brahmastra was released. Being one of the most-hyped films of 2022, the movie is directed by Ayan Mukerji and produced by Dharma Productions along with Fox Star Studios. This fantasy drama also features Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, and Mouni Roy in key roles. And, as per various sources, even Shah Rukh Khan is doing a cameo in the movie.
With so many talented actors, one may assume that fans would be really excited to watch it. But, sadly, soon after the launch of Brahmastra trailer, #Boycott Brahmastra started trending on Twitter. And, what shocked us, even more, was that there were multiple reasons why netizens demanded that fellow social media users boycott the movie.
Brahmastra went on floors in 2018 but witnessed multiple delays. And, a few days back, finally, the makers unveiled its trailer after a long wait. But, soon after the trailer release, a section of social media users called for a movie boycott.
In case you haven’t watched it, here’s the trailer:
Sushant Singh Rajput fans on social media played an active role in trending “Boycott Brahmastra” on Twitter calling the lead stars Ranbir and Alia “worthless nepo kids”. The other reason behind the boycott demand was a temple scene from the trailer in which Ranbir is seen in slippers. And, another reason is Karan Johar’s promotion of nepotism in Bollywood. Some did share how they don’t want to support Bollywood for its rampant use of drugs.
Here are the reactions:
We will never support these Druggies.. We will never support worthless Nepo kids..
We won’t forget what they did to Multi talented Sushant Singh Rajput.
Why did Karan Johar release the trailer of his film on 15th June but full promotion from 14th? Could have chosen any other day. Is it to mock SUSHANT? He kept insulting him when he was alive but that still hasn’t quenched this thirst it seems.#BoycottBrahmastra#Brahmastra
For the unversed, the big-budget Brahmastra will hit the theatres on September 9. Is boycotting Brahmastra just another Twitter trend or has Bollywood actually lost its sheen and charm? What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
