The actor shed his inhibitions and posed for the cameras without a stitch of clothes covering his body. Soon the actor was embroiled in a controversy as many criticised him for his bold photoshoot. But there were many others such as Vidya Balan, Alia Bhatt and more who stood by the Padmaavat star. The Mumba police filed FIR under various Sections of the Indian Penal Code like 292 (sale of obscene books, etc), 293 (sale of obscene objects to young people), 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and provisions of the Information Technology Act.

Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor starrer Laal Singh Chaddha bore the brunt of the boycott trend that took the nation by storm. Right before the release of the Aamir Khan film Twitter users started trending the hashtag #BoycottLaalSinghChaddha. They asked people to not watch the movie. Aamir Khan was charged with insulting the Indian Army.  The Sanatan Rakshak Sena members of the Hindu community asked for the nationwide ban of Aamir’s Laal Singh Chaddha. The effect of the hysteria was felt when the movie was declared a failure.

Ranbir -Alia came together for the first time in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. The team promoted the film on major platforms across the nation. A part of the team’s strategy was to visit several renowned temples across the country and greet their fans. But due to the Boycott Bollywood trend, people dug up old content and controversies of the actors and used it against them. The same took place in Ujjain and the stars refrained from entering the temple. The reason for this was an old video doing rounds on the internet about Ranbir Kapoor admitting to eating beef. This angered the Hindu community of Ujjain and what happened next was history.
