Aamir Khan regrets 'Laal Singh Chaddha' Twitter trolling
Aamir Khan has time and again trended on Twitter for his past controversial remark. Recently, netizens again brutally trolled him on the micro-blogging site once again and went one step ahead by making the hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha go viral.
With Aamir's film 'Laal Singh Chaddha' releasing on August 11, the actor has been busy promoting it. The actor was in the national capital on August 9 where he addressed the 'Boycott' trend on Twitter and responded by saying, "If I have hurt anyone by any means, I regret it. I don't want to hurt anyone. If someone doesn't want to watch the film, I'd respect their sentiment. I'd, however, love for people to go watch the movie because it's our labour of love. A lot of people have worked hard on this film, and I hope people like it," added Aamir.
For the unversed, last month, some Twitter users started using the hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha, asking people to not watch the movie.
Some Twitter users went through the archives and dug up Aamir's controversial "India's growing intolerance" statement and circulated it on the micro-blogging site.
Talking about the controversial statement in question, in 2015, Aamir Khan said in an interview, "Our country is very tolerant, but there are people who spread ill-will". His wife Kiran Rao also made headlines for saying that she considered leaving the country for the safety of their children.
Coming back to 'Laal Singh Chaddha' promotions, during the media interaction, Aamir also revealed that he is very nervous about the film's release and hasn't gotten sleep in 48 hours.
Helmed by Advait Chandan, 'Laal Singh Chaddha' is an official Hindi adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 film 'Forrest Gump' which had Tom Hanks in the lead role.
