Mumbai, Dec 22, 2019-
Days after Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar came out in support of those protesting against the changes in the Citizenship Act, Twitter users opposed him on Sunday and rallied to demand a boycott of his upcoming movie ‘Toofan‘.
#BoycottToofan trended on Twitter with 1,775 tweets.
Toofan is set for October 2020 release. The sports-based film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is jointly produced by Farhan and others.
One user wrote: “Friends a humble request — Please trend this… and ask others to tweet and retweet. #BoycottToofan #FarhanAkhtar @FarOutAkhtar.”
“We don’t want to see movies of such people… who aren’t with the Constitution of our country… and inciting others to go against it,” read another post.
One user remarked: “Don’t see this upcoming movie of Farhan Akhtar. #BoycottToofan”
“Do we really need to boycott his movie… his movies in the past did not make any mark… even when not boycotted. So, no one really gives a *** to his movies.”
One post read: “@FarOutAkhtar. Misleading the youth by spreading hatred. He is the biggest threat to the nation.”
A Twitter user remarked: “We don’t want to see a movie of such an illiterate person like @FarOutAkhtar who knows nothing about CAA. Since some people were protesting, he also gathered people to protest & did the same. Such a hypocrite. Have you ever spoken on Kashmiri Pandits?”
“Let’s boycott people who have zero sense and are not responsible citizens,” said a user. (Agency)
