Once again, Alia Bhatt incited outrage online, increasing awareness of her next movie Brahmastra. The recent comments by the Bollywood actress offended many, which sparked the wildly popular Twitter hashtags “Boycott Brahmastra” and “Boycott Bollywood.” However, neither the movie nor the actress is original in this regard. Trolls frequently attack Alia for a variety of reasons.
This time, Alia allegedly said in an interview, “if you don’t like me, don’t watch me,” which sparked outrage among online users. As a result of the video’s widespread distribution on social media, several Twitter users have vowed to boycott her upcoming movie, “Brahmastra.”
A user of Twitter stated, “The #BoycottBollywood campaign appears to be driving #Bollywood insane. Whenever you like, @aliaa08 “. The following comment was made by another user: “Inspired by Kareena Kapoor Khan, now Alia Bhatt states, “I can’t keep defending myself vocally. And don’t watch me if you don’t like me “So you already know what to do with her future film, Bhramastra, don’t you? RT to spread the word and reach everyone’s WhatsApp groups.” “Alia Butt: “If you don’t like me, don’t see my movie.” This nepo seed is so bold! Accepted as a challenge! Boycott Bollywood and #BoycottBrahmastra “another wrote.
A previous incident in which Kareena Kapoor’s old interview appeared on social media just before the premiere of her movie “Laal Singh Chaddha” angered many people. Kareena expressed similar views to Alia in the video, which sparked a “boycott” trend on Twitter and ultimately hurt the movie’s box office performance. In recent years, the boycott trend has become increasingly popular, with many performers and their films suffering as a result.
Regarding “Brahmastra,” it will be released in theatres on September 9. Brahmastra, the first movie of a trilogy that would create the Astraverse, Bollywood’s very own cinematic universe, took five years to make. Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada are the five Indian languages in which the movie will be released.
