The boycott trend continues on the internet with every new Bollywood release. The latest in line is the Dharma Production’s Pan India movie: Liger. But, what do netizens want you to boycott Liger?
While promoting the film, one of the journalists asked the Telugu film star Vijay Deverakonda, what does he think about the boycott trend that bollywood is facing? He said, ‘Dekh Lenge’.
He said, “I think we are giving this too much attention. Toh karne do (boycott), kya krenge hum. Hum toh picture banaayenge, jinko picture dekhna hai vo dekhnge.”
Not just this, fans have continuously trolled film producer Karan Johar on nepotism. This is also one of the reasons why people want to boycott the film, and get justice for Sushant Singh Rajput.
The film lead, Vijay, has continuously shown faith in the film beyond the boycott trend. He said, “I believe that life has taught me to be a fighter” and film will find its audience. Although, the early booking trends, particularly in the Telugu-speaking belt look promising.
‘Boycott Liger’ See what some of the Twitter have to say
The boycott trend has affected big-budget films like Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chadha, and Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan. Hritik Roshan was criticised for hurting Hindu sentiments through his recent Zomato Ad, and hence ‘#BoycottVikramVedha’ was trending on Twitter.
Liger stars Telugu filmstar Vijar Deverakonda, who gained popularity from his 2017 cult movie Arjun Reddy, and Ananya Pandey in central roles. Through this movie Vijay debuts in Hindi films. The film also stars Ramya Krishnan, Ronit Roy, and popular American boxer Mike Tyson in an extended cameo.
Liger is directed by Puri Jagannadh, and produced by Karan Johar, Jagannadh, Charmme Kaur, and Apoorva Mehta. The film is made on a massive budget and will get a worldwide release on 25th Aug, in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
