Rohit Shetty's 'Dilwale' starring Shahrukh Khan and Kajol that released yesterday was a big hit with much fanfare! But post release also, the flick is facing troubles from major parts of India.
The actor, Shahrukh Khan, who was recently embroiled in a controversy owing to his 'intolerance' statement, has irked some social activists who have decided to boycott the film in their region.
Many days ago, Shahrukh Khan had troubled himself by commenting that he finds India intolerant and his statement resulted in a mass outrage, especially on the internet and social media where many accused the actor of being a traitor and some even alleging that he is a Pakistan supporter! This was the biggest controversy of the year.
But, the actor after the constant backlash his film faced, decided to release an apology to the people for his statement. However, it looks like that this hasn't worked in favour of the actor.
The Bajrang Dal activists in Bihar have decided to oppose the film by shouting slogans, especially in Araria and Patna districts in the state. On the other hand, the Jan Samsaya Nivaran Manch in Rajasthan have been protesting with posters that read 'Boycott Dilwale'.
Rumour has it that the film is facing the wrath of people even in regions like Allahabad where the public is apparently burning the posters of the film owing to the Shahrukh Khan controversy.
It seems like the people won't be able to easily forget the said words of Shahrukh Khan!
