While netizens are busy trending ‘Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’, ‘Dhakad’ actress Kangana Ranaut has claimed that the controversy is ‘skillfully curated by mastermind Aamir Khan Ji himself.’
Kangana on ‘Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, known for voicing her opinion on any issue, recently took to her Instagram stories and shared a lengthy note targeting Aamir Khan ahead of the release of his film, Laal Singh Chaddha.
The 35-year-old accused the actor of spreading negativity around his upcoming film to create a buzz for Laal Singh Chaddha. The actress opined that Aamir has “skillfully” curated the negativity.
“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 flavor have worked, a Hollywood remake would have not worked anyway,” read a part of her Instagram story.
The actress further added: “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 Hinduphobic PK or called India intolerant he gave the biggest hits of his life please stop making it about religion or ideology, it takes away from their bad acting and bad films.”
Does Aamir love India?
Recently, Aamir Khan reacted to the boycott trend by saying, “That Boycott Bollywood… Boycott Aamir Khan… Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha… I feel sad also because a lot of people who are saying this in their hearts believe I am someone who doesn’t like India… In their hearts, they believe that… And that’s quite untrue. I really love the country… That’s how I am. It is rather unfortunate if some people feel that way. I want to assure everyone that it’s not the case so please don’t boycott my films, please watch my films.”
Directed by Advait Chandan, Laal Singh Chaddha stars Kareena Kapoor Khan alongside Aamir Khan. The film is the official Hindi remake of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump. Slated for release on August 11 (on the occasion of Raksha Bandhan), the film also stars Naga Chaitanya in a key role. Apart from its songs, the film has been in the news after ‘boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’ started to trend on Twitter. The trend gained momentum after a few netizens dug out Aamir’s old remarks about India and intolerance.
