This is one of the reasons that Ranbir Kapoor is facing a lot of backlash on social media and trollers are even pushing #BoycottBrahmastra on Twitter.

After Ranbir, Alia and Ayan visited Ujjain, the Bajrang Dal members held black flags and placards at the Mahakaleshwar Temple to protest against the film.

On the other hand, Congress leader Priyanka Chaturvedi shared a post in which several Bollywood celebs can be seen posing with PM Narendra Modi. She wrote, "None of this photo op will help if you'll continue to be mute spectators to hate and believe it's not your business to talk politics."
