Salman Khan's much-awaited film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai has been in the news ever since the trailer was released on Thursday.
While the trailer is being widely hailed by Salman fans, a separate group of netizens, including the late actor Sushant Singh Rajpu’st fans have called out a boycott for the film. The hashtag #BoycottRadhe is currently trending on Twitter as many feel that Salman is the reason why nepotism is rampant in the film industry. According to Sushant fans, Salmaan was one of the reasons behind Sushant’s downfall.
Sushant breathed his last on June 14, 2020, in Mumbai and since then, his fans have been calling for justice for the late actor. Amid this, several times since last year, Sushant’s fans have called to ‘boycott’ many stars in Bollywood. Now, as Radhe is gearing up for release, many of late actor’s fans have taken to the platform and urged everyone to dislike the trailer and to boycott the film. They have been tweeting about not forgetting what happened to Sushant and many have spoken about ‘nepotism’ in their tweets.
A Twitter user wrote, “Salman Khan is known to destroy careers and Sushant was no exception. In the past, he tried to destroy the careers of Arijit Singh, Vivek Oberoi, Abhinav Kashyap and several others” Another wrote, “I am not supporting Salman Khan movies.”
Radhe helmed by Prabhu Deva also stars Disha Patani, Randeep Hooda and Jackie Shroff. In the film, Khan will be essaying the role of an undercover cop, while Hooda will be playing an antagonist role. The film is set to release on May 13.
