The demand for boycott of Aamir Khan’s film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ is increasing every day on social media. The film is going to release on August 11 and before that Aamir has also given clarification to the fans that he loves India and the audience should not boycott his film. But in the meantime, Kangana Ranaut has made such a sensational claim, which has turned the whole story upside down. Kangana has described Aamir Khan as the mastermind of this #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha controversy on her Instagram story. Kangana says that Aamir Khan deliberately started this controversy before the release of his film.
Kangana Ranaut says that Aamir is afraid that his film will flop and that is why he himself started this controversy. On Wednesday, Kangana wrote on Instagram, “I think all the negativity around upcoming relase Laal Singh Chadda is skill fully curated by mastermind Aamir Khan Ji himself.” Without naming ‘Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2’, Kangana further wrote in her post, “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 flavour have worked.”

Kangana further wrote in her post, ‘A Hollywood remake would have not worked anyway…. 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 biggest hits of his life… please stop making it about religion or ideology, it’s takes away from their bad acting and bad films (sic).”
Why did Kangana mention intolerance and Hinduism?
This claim of Kangana has come at a time when old videos of Aamir Khan are going viral on social media. One of these videos is also when he said in the midst of a debate of intolerance that his wife is afraid to live in this country. In Aamir Khan’s 2014 release ‘PK’, there was a lot of uproar when a character appeared in the costume of Lord Shiva and was shown in the toilet. Then ‘PK’ was also called an anti-Hindu film. In her post, Kangana has mentioned these things going viral on social media.
Kangana’s ‘Dhaakad’ proved to be a disaster
However, it is true that in the case of films, negative publicity and controversies turn out to be a profitable deal in many ways. If the film remains in controversies, then the audience reaches the theaters in large numbers. But one thing is also to be noted here that along with ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, there is also a demand for the boycott of Akshay Kumar’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’. By the way, Kangana Ranaut’s last film was ‘Dhaakad’, which could not survive even two days at the box office. ‘Dhaakad’ is one of the biggest disaster films of Bollywood till date. Kangana Ranaut will next be seen in the film ‘Emergency’ based on Indira Gandhi.
