After Aamir Khan's 'Laal Singh Chaddha' and Akshay Kumar's 'Raksha Bandhan' witnessed a disappointing start at the box office amid call for the boycott of their films, now, Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt starrer 'Brahmastra' is facing call for a boycott.
Ayan Mukerji's directorial 'Brahmastra' is touted to be the biggest motion picture in the Indian cinema, made with the technology of VFX and an intriguing storyline based on the Astraverse universe which combined the elements from the Hindu mythology.
Why are people calling for a boycott of Ranbir Kapoor's 'Brahmastra'? The question seems be their in minds of those who have been waiting for this fantasy drama.
Well, a lot of reasons are being given behind the call for a boycott of 'Brahmastra'. These include:
'Ranbir Kapoor's clip from Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani'
A video from 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, has surfaced on social media. In the clip, Bunny asks Naina to make out "behind a temple" and those behind the call for a boycott are claiming that it insults Hinduism.
'Amitabh Bachchan calling out "ghoonghat" on Kaun Banega Crorepati'
A statement of Amitabh Bachchan in which he said that he finds 'ghoonghat' regressive to a woman contestant on the host seat in 'KBC' is being called out by the trollers. They claim that Bachchan hasn't criticised 'burkha' or 'hijab' that is worn by Muslim ladies.
'Karan Johar backing the film'
Those who are against nepotism are always against Karan Johar and simultaneously people are calling for a boycott of 'Brahmastra' in an order to protest against Karan.
Some people have found the film's poster offensive claiming that Ranbir Kapoor's character 'Shiva' is mocking 'Lord Shiva' by holding Trishul in jeans and a shirt.
'Ranbir Worked in PK'
'Brahmastra' is also facing boycott calls because as per a social media user “Ranbir was equally involved in insulting Hindu Gods in 'PK'.
Ranbir was equally involved in insulting Hindu Gods in PK.
Amitabh questions Hindu ghoonghat in KBC but fails to speak on burkha and hijab.

1. Karan Johar production.
2. Unbearable Ranbir Kapoor (He is a good actor, but worst script sense and typecast roles)
3. It took years to make, like it was supposed to be released somewhere in 2018 initially and had multiple release date changes, (1/n)
