Radical Hindutva groups boycott Aamir Khan’s Movie PK

Chandigarh 22 Dec 2014 : PK” is latest movie from director Rajkumar Hirani. It’s being screened worldwide on 4844 screens. Starring Amir Khan, ‘PK’ is getting massive response from viewers.

The controversy took Twitter by a storm as Twitteratis jumped on the social networking site to tweet about the same. While Aamir Khan fans started tweeting with the hashtag #WeSupportPK, a certain section of the audience tweeted against the film with the hashtag #BoycottPK.

The film has a love track between Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput. Sushant plays a Pakistani boy while Anushka plays a Hindu girl. At the start, the lovers separate due to misunderstanding and family pressure, but towards they end they get back together. The Hindutva organisations are calling this romantic angle a concealed endorsement of Love Jihad.

Another bone of contention these religious groups have with the film is its portrayal of God men and the Hindu religion as a God-fearing and not a God-loving one. These organisations passed derogatory remarks about how Aamir despite having married a Hindu, never dared to target Islam in the way he has attacked Hinduism.

#BoycottPK has been trending on Twitter for a while. Some fanatics have also tweeted derogatory remarks about Rajkumar Hirani and Aamir Khan.

We think that these accusations made on Aamir’s film are rather ridiculous. The criticism of blind faith and hypocritical God-men spanned across religions and it wasn’t just targeted at Hindus. To be honest, it is quite stupid to say that a Rajkumar Hirani film, could propagate negativity. We mean look at Munnabhai MBBS and 3 Idiots.

We leave it for you guys to decide, tell us if you think boycotting PK is justified.
