The recently released film ‘Atrangi Re’ starring Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar, Dhanush and Sara Ali Khan seems to be surrounded by controversies. The film released last week on the OTT platform Disney Plus Hotstar and now the demand for its boycott has started on social media. #BoycottAtrangiRe has started trending on Twitter.
‘Atrangi Re’ was released on the OTT platform on 24 December. In this film, Sara plays the character of Rinku, a Bihari girl who is forcibly married off to a Tamil boy Vishu. It is shown in the film that Rinku is in love with a magician and is even ready to leave her husband for him. The name of this magician is Sajjad Ali and this character is played by Akshay Kumar. Just on this matter some people have come down on social media to oppose this film.
Some users say that the film depicts Hindus as cruel who force their daughters to get married. At the same time, some people are saying that a Hindu girl is ready to leave her husband after falling madly in love with a Muslim, thus the film is promoting ‘Love Jihad’.
Talking about Akshay Kumar, now he is going to be seen in films like Prithviraj, Bachchan Pandey, Raksha Bandhan, Ram Setu, and Oh My God 2 after ‘Atrangi Re’. Talking about Sara Ali Khan, she is yet to announce her next film but it is believed that she will be seen in ‘The Immortal Ashwatthama’ opposite Vicky Kaushal.
