The trend started gaining momentum after Devrakonda praised Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha and said that boycotting the film doesn’t just affect the stars, it also affects the 200-300 people associated with it. Following the statement, netizens have now decided to BoycottLiger.
When You Decide To Boycott A Film, You Are Not Affecting Aamir Khan Alone
In an interview with India Today, Vijay said, “There are 200-300 actors working on a film and all of us have staff members, so a film gives employment to many people and is a source of livelihood for many. When Aamir Khan Sir makes a Laal Singh Chaddha, it is his name that features prominently in the film, but there are 2000-3000 families that are being provided for.” He further requested the audience to see the bigger picture and realize how it will also affect the economy.
Look At The Bigger Picture
He continued, “Aamir Sir is someone who pulls the crowd to the theatres. I am not sure why this boycott call is happening, but for whatever misunderstanding this is happening, please realize you are not affecting Aamir Khan alone but the economy. It is a much bigger picture.”
