#BoycottToofaan is trending on social media, as  Farhan Akhtar’s latest Bollywood outing Toofan is being slammed by Indians for allegedly promoting ‘love jihad’.

Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s upcoming film chronicling the life of national-level boxer Aziz Ali played by Farhan Akhtar whose love interest is Dr. Pooja Shah played by Mrunal Thakur.

The film scheduled to release on 16 July 2021 on Amazon Prime Video, has been grabbing eyeballs.

Ever since the trailer was released netizens came out attacking the film claiming that it’s against Indian culture, and have a problem with the depiction of an interfaith love story.

While Farhan Akhtar’s statements during CAA protests were also recalled by many Indian social media users adding more fuel to the fire.

Bhaag Milkha Bhaag star had openly spoken against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) in 2019 and joining anti-CAA rallies in Mumbai had evoked a similar response in January 2020.

Here is how Indians react to upcoming film:
