Recalling Aamir Khan’s ‘India is intolerant’ statement, one Twitter user wrote, “The one who do not feel safe in India should not even release his movies in India. Should definetely go somewhere else like Suaristan/Paxton or Afghanistan where all his brothers live and rule #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha at any cost.” Another netizen said Kareena’s comment on nepotism was a reason to boycott the film, “Two reasons for me to not watch Laal Singh Chaddha 1. Kareena Kapoor asked us to not watch the movie. 2. I’ve watched Forest Gump. Don’t want to ruin it’s charm.” One Twitter user also pointed out Army reference in the trailer and wrote, “His next movie is coming. Acting as mentally challenged in Army Uniform. Has lots of jokes on Army too. Hope people boycott this rubbish. Don’t know how he got clearance from IA for using uniform, badges and making such films ?? #BoycottBollywood #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha.”
