Why are people boycotting ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’?


It has been several days since a boycott against Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan starrer ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has been trending on social media.

The most talked about the movie is coming on the silver screens this month on 11th August, however, social media trending with a hashtag not-so-pleasant ‘Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha’.

Here are the possible reasons why Aamir Khan’s Forrest Gump is being boycotted before its release:

Khan’s controversial ‘PK’ movie

Ahead of its release in 2014, Aamir Khan-starrer PK was embroiled in controversy, with Hindu outfits demanding a ban on the film for allegedly hurting religious sentiments. Complaints were filed in several parts of the country, with the organisations alleging that the movie mocked Hindu gods and its contents were “highly provocative”.

Remarks about ‘growing intolerance’ in India

As per reports, the boycott hashtag began trending after a section of the internet dug out bits from Aamir’s 2015 interview, where he had spoken about the ‘growing intolerance’ in the country.

Khan met Turkish First Lady

Trolls dug up Aamir Khan’s meeting with Turkey’s First Lady Emine Erdogan while he was shooting for Laal Singh Chaddha. Erdogan had shared some photos with the actor that triggered Indians because in the past Erdogan had made comments about the Delhi riots and called it “massacres of Muslims”.

Let’s have a look at the memes and hashtags advocating a complete boycott for the movie:
