Bollywood film industry is going through a bad phase these days. Many big stars’ films were released this year, but due to the displeasure of the people, their films had to face boycott. Their film’s earnings and his fan following have suffered due to this. Films of big actors like Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar have come under the wraps of this ‘Boycott’ trend which has been going on for several days. Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Pathan’, Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Vikram Vedha’ have also been included in this list. Meanwhile, supporting Aamir Khan, Vijay Deverakonda has suffered. Now the boycott wave has started moving towards his upcoming movie ‘Liger’.
Why Vijay Devarakonda is being trolled?
The matter started when South superstar Vijay Deverakonda had supported Aamir Khan’s film ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ in the past. Apart from this, both the lead stars of the film had said something about the boycott trend in an interview which the trolls did not like. But what was on social media, people started demanding to boycott Liger.
It is believed that Karan Johar can also be the reason for the boycott of the film. Amidst all this, Vijay Deverakonda made a tweet which is becoming quite viral. Karan is the producer of this film and he has been accused of promoting nepotism.
Vijay wrote in his tweet, ‘When we live according to religion, then we do not need to worry about others. We will fight back.’ He wrote this statement along with fire emoji.
Vijay Devarakonda’s response on trolls
Recently, reacting to the boycott trend, Vijay Deverakonda said, ‘I think we are giving too much attention to it.’ On this, Ananya says, ‘Every day there is some boycott and cancellation.’ In response to this, Vijay further says, ‘Yes, let it be done. What can we do? We will make a picture, they will watch if what they want to watch. Those who do not want to watch, they will watch on TV or in the phone. We cannot do anything.’
Vijay Deverakonda’s film ‘Liger’ will be released in theaters on 25 August 2022. It will be released in 5 languages Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam.
