Laal Singh Chaddah Movie Boycott Campaign

Now, his latest film Pathaan, which hasn’t even aired yet, has received discordant boycotts from social media.
Regarding this boycott, the Mohabbattein actor has already expressed his opinion. In an interview that has now gone viral on Twitter, Shah Rukh Khan said there was little profit for filmmakers from the boycott even though he gave absolutely no support for doing so.

Regarding the boycott aimed at his previous film, Shah Rukh Khan is actually not the one who cares about it. “There are those who argue, there are those who comment about it, but in this country, I know I have received a lot of love from society and with that belief I believe that not many people have received as much love as I have,” concluded Shah Rukh Khan.
