Aamir Khan’s film Laal Singh Chaddha, which is one of the much-awaited films of this year, is all set to release this week. However, the superstar has been on the receiving end as #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha began to trend on Twitter for the past few days.
A section of netizens called for a boycott and began to dig Supertar’s old statements that are often misleading. Now a video is going viral on Twitter which seems to be a clip from the recent episode of Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati that had Mr. Perfectionist as the guest.
In the viral video, some netizens claimed that Aamir Khan did not salute while the national anthem was played during the episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 14. In the video, however, the superstar was heard saying, “Bharat Mata Ki Jai”.
A Twitter user sharing the video, which seems to be recorded from TV, was captioned, “Patriotic Aamir Khan refuses to salute Indian Army. Watch and boycott #LaalSinghChadda”. Take a look at the video below:
