During the meeting they talked about Boycott Bollywood. He said, ‘The trend of boycott is not worth paying attention to.’ Not only this, Javed Akhtar has also given a befitting reply to those who commented on Shahrukh Khan.
Javed Akhtar said this about Shahrukh Khan
Javed Akhtar said, ‘Whatever is being said about Shahrukh is all nonsense. He is a gentleman. He is secular. No one is more secular than him. I can say this with such a claim because I have seen the atmosphere of his house, I know how he lives in his house.
Why people are protesting against ‘Pathan’?
Actually, the controversy started when the song ‘Besharam Rang’ from ‘Pathan’ was released. As soon as the song was released, people started calling it obscene. Subsequently, the saffron color of Deepika’s bikini in the song was also dragged into a religious controversy. Not only this, social media started demanding to boycott Shah Rukh Khan’s film and Bollywood.
Record broken despite opposition
Despite protests and calls for a boycott, the film was a smash hit at the box office. On the very first day ‘Pathan’ did a business of Rs 57 crore. Let us tell you, this is the first Hindi film to earn so much on the opening day. Along with this, ‘Pathan’ is the first film in Shah Rukh Khan’s career, which has earned more than Rs 50 crore on the opening day.
