Without any doubt, three things are very popular in India-Films, Politics, and sports. We see hero worship in peaks in India which is not the same in any other country. The same hero worship made many actors serve as Chief Ministers and Parliamentarians as well. However, the trend has changed in India.
As if the Covid pandemic outbreak is not enough, the film industry is suffering from the boycott trend. Many films in Bollywood became victims of the trend and Aamir Khan's recent outing Laal Singh Chaddha also fell prey to the trend. A section of people started demanding that the film should be boycotted.
The Right-wing has been aggressively fighting against Hinduphobic content and films and such films are facing the heat. Stressing on old comments made by Aamir Khan in an interview, the Hindu groups and Right-wing are targeting the star on various issues.
The Right-wing is very stringent on boycotting the anti-Hindu content to a level that even Hindu actor Akshay Kumar's recent outing Raksha Bandhan faced the wrath. The reason behind Akshay Kumar starrer seeing impact is film's writer Kanika Dhillon reportedly making anti-Hindu remarks on social media in various posts.
Talking about Laal Singh Chaddha, the Right-wing hit the bull's eye in carrying out anti-sentiment towards the film. As a result, the film opened with one of the least ever openings in Aamir Khan's career.
Raising a new doubt about whether Lal Singh Chaddha's failure should be seen as the success of the Right-wing, the members and sympathizers of the ideology are openly enjoying the outcome. Not just the common people, but even the politicians are also doing the same.
Actress-turned-politician Vijayashanti who is with the Telangana wing of the Bharatiya Janata Party has been bashing the film for quite some time. When Megastar Chiranjeevi came onboard to present the film in Telugu, Vijayashanti indirectly took a potshot at Chiranjeevi for presenting the film in Telugu.
In a series of Tweets, Vijayashanti said that Lal Singh Chaddha's failure is the success of supporters of Hindu outfits and the BJP party as they created awareness about the real nature of the lead actor Aamir Khan.
