Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut’s words have landed her in controversies, in the past.
However, that hasn’t stopped the actress from speaking her mind.
This time, she spoke about a controversy involving superstar Aamir Khan and the actor’s upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha co-starring Kareena Kapoor.
She has gone on record saying that the mastermind behind the #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha campaign is Aamir Khan himself!
She portrays Aamir Khan as some kind of evil genius who is doing this campaign for publicity.
Kangna posted this on Instagram.
“I think all the negativity around upcoming release Laal Singh Chadha is skilfully curated by mastermind Aamir Khan Ji himself.”
“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.”
“A Hollywood remake would have not worked anyway..But now they will call India intolerant.”
She further added, “Hindi films need to understand the pulse of audiences. It’s not about being a Hindu or Muslim…even after Aamir Khan ji made a Hinduphobic PK or called India intolerant he gave biggest hits of his life… please stop making it about religion or ideology. It takes away from their bad acting and bad films.”
#BoycottLaalSinghChaddha – The background
Ahead of the release of Aamir and Kareena’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’, the film triggered controversy after “#BoycottLaalSinghChaddha” started trending on Twitter.
Apparently, some Twitter users went through the archives and dug up Aamir’s controversial “India’s growing intolerance” statement and circulated it on the micro-blogging site.
Apart from that, Aamir’s wife Kiran Rao also made headlines for saying that she considered leaving the country for the safety of their children.
This comment had led to outrage a few years ago.
However, this comment got a fresh lease of life and made news again when Laal Singh Chaddha is about to be released.
