Days after Kangana Ranaut made a sensational claim that the negativity surrounding Laal Singh Chaddha is ‘skillfully curated’ by Aamir Khan , director Advait Chandan has taken a jibe at those trolling the superstar.
On Monday, the filmmaker took to Instagram Stories and appeared to taking a jibe at Kangana Ranaut, and others, who said trolls were hired to create a buzz around Laal Singh Chaddha.
“I am told there are people being paid to troll Aamir Sir. This is deeply upsetting to hear and it’s outright unfair. Why have I been trolling him for free?” Advait wrote as he shared the hashtag ‘Pay Every Troll’.
Actor Kangana Ranaut had previously taken to her Instagram handle and said that all the negative buzz around Laal Singh Chaddha was created by mastermind Aamir Khan. She wrote, “I think all the negativity around the upcoming release Laal Singh Chaddha is skillfully curated by mastermind Aamir Khan Ji himself.”
Following this, a section of social media users said that trolls were being paid to garner attention for the film. The boycott trend against Laal Singh Chaddha began after Aamir Khan’s 2015 interview, where he said that his then-wife Kiran Rao had suggested they move out of India because of ‘growing intolerance’, resurfaced and caught attention on social media. Laal Singh Chaddha is set for an August 11 theatrical release.
