‘Lal Singh Chaddha’ is a movie starring Aamir Khan where the main lead is a Sikh. The call to boycott the movie has been trending all over social media for a while now. And the Twitter community has been coming up with hashtags to unite the people to prevent them from watching the movie. England spinner Monty Panesar is all against the movie ‘Lal Singh Chaddha’, starring Aamir Khan.
He called the film to be disgraceful and said that the film insults the Indian Army too. Panesar added that the movie was a disgrace to Indian Armed Forces and Sikhs. This movie is a remake of the Hollywood movie ‘Forrest Gump’. The movie speaks about the US Army hiring low-IQ people making way to the history books.
Monty Panesar expressed his unhappiness regarding the movie on Twitter
The former England spinner took it to Twitter to express his unhappiness about the Bollywood remake of the ‘Forrest Gump’ movie. “Forrest Gump fits in the US Army because the US was recruiting low-IQ men to meet requirements for the Vietnam War. This movie is a total disgrace to the Indian Armed Forces Indian Army and Sikhs !! Disrespectful. Disgraceful. #BoycottLalSinghChadda,” Panesar tweeted.
The movie was shot in over a hundred locations all over India. The shooting began way back in the year 2019. And it was delayed further due to Covid-19. It was later revealed that the film might hit the theatres post-2020. However, after many delays, the film finally hit the screens. The film features some Indian stars like Kareena Kapoor, Akkineni Naga Chaitanya, Mona Singh, and others. Starring some of the vintage stars of India, the film stares at a possible low attendance due to the trend.
Monty Panesar migrated from the state of Punjab, India to England. He further went on to become one of the reputed spinners for England. The former spinner managed to pick 163 international wickets overall. He has represented England in 50 test matches, 26 ODIs, and one T20I between 2006 and 2013.
