Earlier, members of the Sanatan Rakshak Sena protested against the film in a mall in Varanasi. State President of Sanatan Rakshak Sena Chandra Prakash Singh said that after watching Aamir Khan’s last film ‘PK’, it was clear that the actor makes fun of Hindu gods and goddesses and makes unflattering remarks on them. The organization appealed to the people not to watch the film and also gave a memorandum to the station in-charge of Bhelupur.
‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ directed by Advait Chandan is a remake of Hollywood film ‘Forrest Gump’. Reacting to the boycott trend, Aamir had earlier said, “I feel sad. At the same time, I am also sad that some people who are saying this, believe in their heart that I am someone who does not like India. They believe in their heart, but it is untrue. It’s unfortunate that some people feel that way. that’s not it. Please don’t boycott my film. Please watch my film.” At the end of its second weekend, ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ has earned Rs 55 crore at the box office.
