Netizens Troll Kareena Kapoor For Using Mindless Words Like ‘Elitist’ & ‘Classist’ To Describe Laal Singh Chaddha

Kareena Kapoor Khan was trying to convey that since "Forrest Gump" is an American movie, most Indian moviegoers haven't seen it.

Laal Singh Chaddha which finally took several years to be ready for moviegoers, is all set to release on August 11 and stars Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan.

In a recent interview while promoting the film, Kareena Kapoor was discussing the movie when she used numerous adjectives to describe how watching “Laal Singh Chaddha” might be novel for fans.

Kareena Kapoor Khan was trying to convey that since “Forrest Gump” is an American movie, most Indian moviegoers haven’t seen it. She added that for them, “Laal Singh Chaddha” will thus just be a story and not a Forrest Gump remake.

Kareena attempted to justify why “Laal Singh Chaddha” would be a novel experience for the Indian audience in an interview with News18 by pointing out that “many” would not have seen the original film, Forrest Gump.

However, when she used terms like “elitist” and “classist,” Kareena went a little too far. During the interview, she is heard saying, “No, because it’s an original adaptation in a different language. Our language and our sentiments are very different from theirs also. So, we’ve adapted it for our Indian screens, and I’m sure people would enjoy it. But many people still haven’t watched ‘Forrest Gump’…the masses would not have seen. It is an elitist kind of classist film. So they (Indian audience) will see it for a story, not because it’s a remake of ‘Forrest Gump’.”

This part of Kareena’s interview started doing rounds on the internet.

An internal user wrote, “We have Aamir who is literally begging people asking them to watch the movie and on the other side we have this snob who keeps pushing people away from the movie. Great jodi”

Another one wrote, “God she’s one of the most empty headed people EVER, do you even know what classist means, Kareena? Verbal diarrhoea every time she tries sounding the slightest bit smart”

While one commented, “I lost a couple of braincells trying to understand what does she even mean.”

Meanwhile, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is the official Hindi remake of the Hollywood 1994 classic ‘Forrest Gump’, starring Tom Hanks. It also stars Kareena Kapoor in a pivotal role.
