For many days, the hashtag ‘Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’ has been trending on social media.
Now, Laal Singh Chaddha star Aamir Khan, who has begun the promotions of his upcoming film, has talked to the media and finally broke his silence on the #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha campaign happening on social media.
When asked to comment on this negative campaign against this film, Aamir Khan said, “I feel sad about it. Also, I feel sad that some of the people who are saying this, in their hearts, believe that I am someone who doesn’t like India.”
“In their hearts they believe (so), but it is untrue. It is rather unfortunate that some people feel that way. That’s not the case,” he maintained. He then added, “Please don’t boycott my film. Please watch my film.” Aamir Khan became a target after his 2014 blockbuster PK (2014) was accused of hurting religious sentiments.
The campaign got reactivated after the demise of Sushant Singh Rajput in June 2020. The whole of Bollywood was targeted and Aamir Khan also bore the brunt of it. Several fake quotes attributed to Aamir have also been shared on social media. With Laal Singh Chaddha’s release being less than two weeks away, the campaign has become stronger.
