I am a big beef guy: Ranbir Kapoor’s video resurfaces on Twitter as boycott Brahmastra trends

Alia’s recent comments “don’t like me, don’t watch me” have also not met well with certain users

Published: 29th August 2022

#BoycottBrahmastra has been trending on Twitter lately for a multitude of reasons. The major one being, a video of Ranbir Kapoor having a meal, and talking about his love for red meat. “I am a big beef guy,” he said in the clip. 

This has left netizens irked and they are calling out the film’s cast and makers for being “two-faced”. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Nagarjuna Akkineni, Amitabh Bachchan and Mouni Roy. It is directed by Ayan Mukerji.

There are other reasons too because of which the film is being boycotted. Alia, in a recent interview, said, “I can’t keep defending myself… don’t like me don’t watch me.” Similar comments were made by Kareena Kapoor Khan before the release of Laal Singh Chaddha and it bombed at the box office. Comparing the two comments, Twitterati has now taken up “the challenge” and some users now want to fulfill Alia’s wish too.

Another reason that has led to a spate of anti-Brahmastra tweets is Rahul Bhatt’s (Alia’s half-brother) alleged involvement in the dreadful 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks. Rahul was reportedly close to Lashkar-e-Taiba's Pakistani-American terrorist David Coleman Headley, who had a pivotal role in executing the attacks. Even Amitabh Bachchan is being accused of being Hinduphobic. A clip from him from Kaun Banega Crorepati is doing the round where he calls ghoonghat as regressive. This hasn’t gone down well with certain Twitter users who are calling him “anti-hindu”. On top of that, the film is also receiving hate because of star kids being part of it. Social media users are calling out the makers for promoting nepotism by casting Ranbir and Alia in the lead roles. Bollywood films are being boycotted recently on Twitter. It started off with Laal Singh Chaddha and Raksha Bandhan. Even Hrithik and Saif Alia Khan’s Vikram Vedha was attacked by the boycott brigade. Brahmastra Part One: Shiva will be released in theatres on September 9.
