"Mastermind," says Kangana Ranaut. The boycott Laal Singh Chaddha fad is supported by Aamir Khan and
Aamir Khan may have initiated the criticism of his own movie, according to Kangana Ranaut, who also noted that no Hindi films are performing well at the box office.
According to Kangana Ranaut, Aamir Khan personally started the boycott movement for his next movie Laal Singh Chaddha. The movie is an official Hindi translation of the Tom Hanks-starring Forrest Gump from 1994. On social media, there are currently demands for a boycott of it.

"I think all the criticism about the upcoming release Laal Singh Chadda is skilfully curated by mastermind Aamir Khan Ji himself," Kangana shared in a message on her Instagram Stories. This year, only south films that are thoroughly entrenched in Indian culture or have a local flavour have succeeded (with the exception of a comedic sequel in Hindi). A Hollywood remake would not have been successful. The box office success of Bhool Bhulaiyya 2, the Akshay Kumar-starring sequel to Bhool Bhulaiyya, is one of the few notable Hindi films of this year. The Kashmir Files and Gangubai Kathiawadi are two other Bollywood films that have performed well at the box office this year.
The movie marks Aamir and Kareena Kapoor Khan's third collaboration; they previously appeared in Talaash and 3 Idiots. Advait Chauhan is the director of the film Laal Singh Chaddha, which also has significant roles for Mona Singh and Naga Chaitanya.
Internet users have lobbied for a boycott of the movie using the hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha weeks before its August 11 premiere. Aamir Khan responded to the trends by saying, "That Boycott Bollywood... Boycott Aamir Khan... Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha... I'm also saddened by the fact that many individuals who are expressing this in their hearts think I don't like India... They genuinely believe it in their hearts And that is completely false. I cherish this nation.
