On Tuesday, #Boycott_Atrangi_Re started trending on Twitter, above #MrunalThakur and #Liger. The tag was attached to tweets accusing the film of insulting religious figures and promoting secular ideas of love in modern India.

Directed by Aanand L Rai, Atrangi Re is a love story starring Dhanush, Sara Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar. The film is written by Himanshu Sharma. The storyline touches on issues of mental illness and communal violence. One of the primary characters, Sajjad Ali, played by Akshay, is a Muslim, which seems to have riled up sentiments online.

Atrangi Re premiered on Disney+ Hotstar on December 24. It's likely the last major Hindi release of the year. Jersey, which was slated to arrive in theatres on December 31, has been indefinitely postponed amid rising Omicron cases.
