Why is #BoycottRakshaBandhanMovie Trending on Twitter? 

#BoycottRakshaBandhanMovie: Akshay Kumar’s upcoming big release Raksha Bandhan is all set to hit the theatres on August 11, 2022. The film starring Bhumi Pednekar, Sahejmeen Kaur, and others is getting a lot of negativities as the film is accused of plagiarism. It has been reported that Raksha Bandhan’s story is copied from a Pakistani film. Also, the writer of Raksha Bandhan Kanika Dhillon was slammed after her old tweets surfaced online where she wrote about gau mutra, hijab ban and communal lynching.

Kanika Dhillon has been caught embarking on a confused anti-Hindu speech on Twitter as her tweets went viral on the platform ahead of the film’s release. Akshay was questioned why he chooses to work with such people who have an innate Pishnet to hate everything associated with Hinduism. This is not the first time Akshay has worked with people who are anti-Hindus. A user asked Akshay, “Why @akshaykumar always ends up partnering with Hindu haters, beef lovers? Is it coincidence? #RakshaBandhan”.

Is Kanika Dhillon the reason behind controversy?

Another user shared a screenshot of Kanika Dhillon’s tweet and commented, “You are against Hindus tradition & also working on a movie called #RakshaBandhan You basically wants hindu tradition money but hate hindus tradition We hindus #BoycottRakshaBandhanMovie Paiso ke liya nachne wale hum difference na samjaye hijab aur ghoonghat me #KanikaDhillon”.

Amid this, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut took to her social handle to weigh in. Reacting to a news Kanika deleting the controversial tweets after boycott trends, Kangana took a jibe at Kanika. She wrote, “Ha ha nothing affects them as much as financial loss… only the fear of financial loss can make them delete Hindu phobic and anti India tweets, nothing else… interesting”.
