#BoycottLaalSinghChaddha: Atul Kulkarni's Old Tweet 'What Makes You Think I'm Hindu' Adds Fuel To Online Trend

Touted as Mr Perfectionist of Bollywood, Aamir Khan is geared up to entertain the audience with his upcoming movie ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’. But seems like his movie has hit a roadblock #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha online as the actor and his co-star Kareena Kapoor Khan’s old interview resurfaced online, leaving many movie buffs disappointed. And just when things started to calm down and the movie was reported to gain momentum at the box office in the advance booking, #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha has once again started trending on social media thanks to writer Atul Kulkarni’s 2013 tweet.

A renowned actor himself, Kulkarni enjoys a huge fan following on social media himself as a tweet ‘what makes you think I’m a Hindu’ from 2013 has resurfaced on Twitter. While many desi-Twitter users have been calling the actor-turned-writer an anti-Hindu, the hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChhadha has once again gained momentum and started trending online.

Reacting to the boycott trend, Aamir at an promotional event had said, “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.”

Helmed by Advait Chandan, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ stars Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Mona Singh, Manv Vij and Naga Chaitanya in significant roles. The official adaptation of Tom Hanks ‘Forrest Gump’ is scheduled to release in theatres on August 11, 2022.
