A few days before the release, Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar’s film ‘Toofan’ caused a storm on social media.
The hashtag #BoycottToofaan started trending on social media in India. Opponents of the film demanded a boycott of the film.
In angry messages on social media, Indian citizens say that the ideology of Love Jihad is being promoted through the film and anti-India and anti-Hindu Dharma propaganda is being spread.
In the film, Farhan Akhtar is playing the role of Aziz Ali, a national level boxer from India and his rival actress Mrunal Thakur is playing the role of Dr. Pooja Shah.
Critics say the ‘Lo Jihad’ is being promoted through the romantic relationship between the two characters.
The film will be released on July 16 on the web streaming service Amazon Prime.
