Mumbai: Days after Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar came out in support of those protesting against the changes in the Citizenship Act, Twitter users opposed him on Sunday and rallied to demand a boycott of his upcoming movie Toofan.
#BoycottToofan trended on Twitter with 1,775 tweets.
Toofan is set for October 2020 release. The sports-based film directed by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is jointly produced by Farhan and others.
One user wrote: "Friends a humble request -- Please trend this... and ask others to tweet and retweet. #BoycottToofan #FarhanAkhtar @FarOutAkhtar."
"We don't want to see movies of such people... who aren't with the Constitution of our country... and inciting others to go against it," read another post.
One user remarked: "Don't see this upcoming movie of Farhan Akhtar. #BoycottToofan" "Do we really need to boycott his movie... his movies in the past did not make any mark... even when not boycotted. So, no one really gives a *** to his movies."
One post read: @FarOut-Akhtar. Misleading youth by spreading hatred. He is the biggest threat to the nation."
A Twitter user remarked: "We don't want to see a movie of such an illiterate”.
