Netizens have been trending ‘Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’ for quite some time now. Aamir Khan, the film’s lead actor, is reportedly facing backlash on social media over remarks he made against India a few years ago.
In the midst of everything, Kangana Ranaut used her Instagram account to voice her concerns. She claims that Aamir is the brains behind all of the negative press that has been created about the movie.
She wrote, ‘I think all the negativity around upcoming release Laal Singh Chadda is skillfully curated by mastermind Aamir Khan Ji himself, this year no Hindi films have worked (barring one exception of a comedy sequel) only south films deeply rooted in Indian culture or with local flavour have worked, a Hollywood remake would have not worked anyway.But now they will call India intolerant, Hindi films need to understand the pulse of audiences it’s not about being a Hindu or Muslim.Even after Aamir Khan ji made Hindu phobic PK or called India intolerant he gave biggest hits of his life please stop making it about religion or ideology, it takes away from their bad acting and bad films (sic).’
Aamir too had spoken about the negative campaign against the film recently at a promotional event of the film. He said, “Yes, I feel sad. Also, I feel sad that some of the people who are saying this, in their heart, they believe that I am someone who doesn’t like India. In their hearts they believe, but it is untrue. It is rather unfortunate that some people feel that way. That’s not the case. Please don’t boycott my film. Please watch my film.”
Laal Singh Chaddha also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Naga Chaitanya in pivotal roles. The film is all set to release on August 11.
