Akshay Kumar reacts to boycott 'Raksha Bandhan', 'Laal Singh Chaddha' trend

Bollywood is gearing up for two big releases this week. Akshay Kumar's 'Raksha Bandhan' and Aamir Khan's 'Laal Singh Chaddha'. Both films are touted as big-budget films and stakes are high on both as these films feature A-list superstars who manage to pull in the crowd with their films. While the buzz on both the films is high, there is also a certain section on social media which has trolled both films, demanding a boycott of them. 

'Raksha Bandhan' and 'Laal Singh Chaddha' faced the boycott trend on social media with trolls claiming that the people involved in both films have in the past made anti-national comments. 

Reacting to the ongoing boycott trend in India, Akshay, during a promotional event in Kolkata urged people not to get involved in such activities. He said, "If you don`t feel like watching the movie, then don't. It's a free country and the film is out there, so if someone wants to watch it or not, it's up to them. I would like to tell you, no matter which industry it is, be it the clothing industry, film industry or anything else, all of this help the economy. But doing things like boycotting movies, it doesn`t make sense."

A few days earlier, Aamir too expressed his views about the ongoing Boycott trend in India.

"That Boycott Bollywood... Boycott Aamir Khan... Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha... I feel sad also because a lot of people who are saying this in their hearts believe I am someone who doesn`t like India... In their hearts they believe that... And that`s quite untrue. I really love the country... That`s how I am. It is rather unfortunate if some people feel that way. I want to assure everyone that it`s not the case so please don`t boycott my films, please watch my films," he said.
