Seems like every single day, social media brings up new and absurd reasons to boycott a particular film, actor, company or even Bollywood. Recently Aamir Khan got caught up in the whole boycott culture as netizens bought up his previous statements about intolerance, which heavily affected the business of his movie Laal Singh Chaddha. Similarly, a certain section came for Shah Rukh Khan and his upcoming movie Pathaan as they trended #BoycottPathaan, however, SRK’s fan base came out in support for the actor. Now an old video of the actor addressing social boycott of his movies is going viral.
In the clip, Shah Rukh is seen talking about the social boycott of his movies and said that the people of India have given him immense love. He said, “Actually, sometimes it is good…agar picture utni na chale jitna aap samjhte the, toh ek excuse mil jata hai…yeh excuse hai…social boycott hua tha isliye nahi chali…”
He further said, “With due respect, kisiko hoga issue, kuch ek commet tha, kuch kisine bana diya, woh log bade khush honge…aur agar khush hai toh woh bhi khush ho…humari wajah se hi khush ho…but ess desh mein, Bharat mein, jitna pyaar mujhe kiya jaata hai, main yeh danke ki chot par bol sakta hoon, bahut kam logon ko kiya gaya hai. Aur woh pyaar ek baat se yah do cheezo se…sahi galat log samjhte hai…I don’t think that has affected me or my film or will ever affect me or my film.” Watch the video here.
