Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Wednesday said superstar Aamir Khan had orchestrated the controversy around his upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha himself.
“I think all the negativity around upcoming release Laal Singh Chadda 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, 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,” Kangana said in an Instagram post
Aamir had earlier urged fans to watch the movie after calls to boycott the film trended on Twitter in wake of his controversial 2015 statement on growing intolerance in India. He assured fans he loved India and urged them to watch the film. “…I feel sad. Also, I feel sad that some of the people who are saying this, in their heart, they believe that I am someone who doesn’t like India. In their hearts they believe, but it is untrue. It is rather unfortunate that some people feel that way. That’s not the case. Please don’t boycott my film. Please watch my film,” the superstar commented when asked if the incessant trolling bothered him.
The movie is slated to release on August 11.
