Anupam Kher reminded Aamir Khan of his ‘past’ in the latest interview. He also talked about the ongoing boycott culture in Bollywood.
The Kashmir Files fame Anupam Kher recently criticized Aamir Khan after his film Laal Singh Chaddha failed to perform at the box office and called for a boycott by netizens on social media.
A lot of people on Twitter asked everyone to boycott Aamir’s film owing to his past comment on India affecting the box office collection of the movie.
These days a lot of Bollywood celebrities are reacting to the ongoing boycott culture of Bollywood and now veteran actor Anupam Kher has reacted to the same saying that everyone on Twitter is entitled to start a new trend any day.
The boycott calls were initiated when people pulled out Aamir’s old comments on the country. In 2015, Aamir Khan said that he felt ‘alarmed’ by the things happening in India.
“When I chat with Kiran at home, she says, ‘Should we move out of India?’ That’s a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make. She fears for her child.
She fears what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers every day. That does indicate that there is this sense of growing disquiet, there is growing despondency apart from alarm,”
the actor stated and his statement grabbed mixed reactions across the nation.
Talking about Aamir’s remark, Anupam told India Today,
“If you have said something in the past, it will surely haunt you.”
“If someone one feels that they should start a trend, they are free to do so. There are new trends on Twitter every day,”
He depicted his concern over the ongoing boycott trends which continue to target one film after another.
Anupam Kher and Aamir have been part of several films together, such as Dil, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin, and many others.
Back in 2015, Anupam was among the many individuals who slammed Aamir for his comments.
In one of his tweets, he wrote,
“Did you ask Kiran Rao which country would she like to move out to? Did you tell her that this country has made you AAMIR KHAN?”
Reportedly, so many other films also became the target of boycott trends, besides Laal Singh Chaddha including Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan, Vijay Deverakonda’s Liger, and even Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming Pathaan.
