Aamir Khan Laal Singh Chaddha

Up for some Bollywood news? Aamir Khan Productions releases its newest film Laal Singh Chaddha on August 11, 2022. The 2022 Hindi Indian language comedy-drama film is from Eric Roth’s screenplay. Laal Singh Chaddha is produced by Viacom18 Studios, Kiran Rao, directed by Advait Chandan, and distributed by Paramount Pictures. However, it circulates hate and boycott attempts before its release date as it allegedly copies Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump.

The film centers around the “extraordinary adventure of a simple man”. If you are familiar with the 1994’s Oscar-winning Best Picture, Forrest Gump, Laal Singh Chaddha may be close to your liking too. The Hindi Indian film is a remake of the famous Tom Hanks film, and it leads to netizens disliking the thought of it. Additionally, you can watch the emotional official trailer here. Thoughts?

Laal Singh Chaddha to be Boycott

Indians throw backlash on the upcoming movie and want to boycott Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha. This backlash has been going on since May 2022. People have posted their sentiments as to why they want to boycott the film. Here are the following reasons we have found.

  • One of the main reasons is its film is a copy of Forrest Gump. In line with this, netizens use the power of social media to reach other people with the Twitter hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha.
  • Many people who watched the official trailer on May 29th share the same thoughts. Additionally, here below is a Tweet from a netizen stating that you can watch the original for free, instead of watching Aamir Khan’s upcoming film.

  • Furthermore, the above-mentioned reason is not the only cause of the backlash. The lead actor, Aamir Khan, receives a lot of hate due to his controversial statements mentioned before.
  • Several Twitter users below the hashtag mention his statement way back in 2015 that he doesn’t feel safe in Bharat anymore. Netizens picked on this as they release Laal Singh Chaddha in India and worldwide in theaters in August. Check the Tweet below.

  • In addition, there are netizens who brought up Aamir Khan mocking their Dharma in a movie. You may refer to the Tweet below. Also, this sparked other people, like the account @KreatelyMedia, to bring up Khan as an anti-Hindu, anti-Bharat, and pro-Turkey actor.

The synopsis says, “With a childhood marked by a unique bond between Laal and his single mother, tempered with strong values, the story follows Laal’s journey of love, innocence, and destiny as he triumphs over life’s many challenges.
