Laal Singh Chaddha, starring Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor, was involved in a controversy a few days before its premiere. On social media, hashtags urging a boycott of the movie became famous.
Here are why trolls called for a boycott and how Aamir and Kareena replied. Aamir discussed the “increasing intolerance” in the nation in a 2015 interview that reportedly inspired the hashtag “boycott.” Aamir had commented, “As a citizen of this country, we read in the papers what is happening and see it on the news, and I have been frightened.” I cannot disagree. There have been a few incidences that have concerned me.
He said that Kiran asked me if we should leave India. She made a terrible, significant remark during our conversation. She is worried about her kid and the environment we will be in.
Later, Aamir stated that his comments had been misinterpreted and that he hadn’t meant to hurt anyone. “This mistake caused me pain, and it caused pain for many other people. I attribute this to the media because you guys misrepresented what I said. Please refrain from doing this, I beg of you all,” Aamir urged.
I never mentioned that; let me assure you of that. I was born in India, and I shall also pass away there. I never considered relocating outside of the nation. Kiran and I won’t give it much thought. I become homesick after a two-week absence from my homeland.
Aamir’s Meeting With the First Lady of Turkey
Aamir Khan’s encounter with Turkey’s First Lady Emine Erdogan while he was filming Lal Singh Chaddha, has also been brought up by trolls. On social media, Erdogan posted several images with the actor and said, “In Istanbul, I had the honor of meeting the famous Indian actor, director, and filmmaker Aamir Khan. I was pleased to read that Aamir chose to finish filming his most recent movie, “Laal Singh Chaddha,” in various regions of Turkey. I’m excited about it!”
He has also endorsed India’s revocation of Article 370 and Pakistan’s position on Kashmir. All parties involved will benefit from such a resolution. The Kashmir issue will continue to be resolved via justice, peace, and conversation as long as Turkey is involved, “Erdogan stated.
What Aamir & Kareena Said About the Controversy
In an interview with India Today, Kareena further stated, “Certainly, since the accessibility is there now.” Today, everyone has a voice. Different platforms are available. Everybody has a viewpoint. Therefore, if that is going to be the case, you must learn to disregard some things. Otherwise, living your life will just become impossible. I don’t take any of this seriously. I only publish what I choose to publish.
“I’m thinking, ‘It’s a movie, it’s out, and everyone will have their view. That’s all, then. If the movie is good, I think the audience reaction will be positive and transcend all expectations. My belief is that quality films will outperform everything.”
