Just hours after the teaser release of Shah Rukh Khan’s film Pathaan, netizens started sharing an old interview video of the actor in which the actor was seen passing a statement of growing intolerance in India. While a segment of netizens also pointed out Sushant Singh Rajput’s death blaming the industry for the same and asking people to boycott big names like Salman, Aamir, Akshay, and now Shah Rukh.

One of the major reasons that contributed to the failure of the film was the cancel culture. And now these boycott trends are targeting Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming film Pathaan. More than 45k tweets have been shared under the same trend.
Sharing the trend a user tweeted, “Glorifying a group of people called Pathans who are nothing but glorified child molesters. Unke Khoon main laundebaazi hai. I am sick and tired of the usage of Pathan, Sultan, good old Rahim chacha, Sufi music, Maula, etc. It’s done. Boycott this nonsense,”.
