Kareena Kapoor Khan faces massive flak for saying ‘masses haven’t seen Forrest Gump because it is an ‘elitist’, ‘classist’ film

Aamir Khan‘s upcoming Laal Singh Chaddha, which is an official remake of 1994 Hollywood blockbuster Forrest Gump, has been facing a constant rejection from the audience. Netizens have been calling for boycott of Laal Singh Chaddha citing Aamir’s 2018 intolerance remark and Kareena Kapoor Khan‘s ‘don’t watch our films’ statement in the media. Amid the chaos, Bebo is now facing massive flak for her yet another statement about masses not knowing about Forrest Gump because it is an elitist and classist film.

While responding to a question about having apprehentions about signing Laal Singh Chaddha, Kareena said that they have adapted the Hollywood film for the Indian screens, adding that people would enjoy it since a lot of people still haven’t seen Forrest Gump.

“Because the masses would not have seen Forrest Gump. It is an elitist kind of classist film. It’s a film that the mass people they haven’t seen, so they will see it for a story. They aren’t gonna see it because it’s a remake of Forrest Gump. Of course, Aamir (Khan) has made it for that but it’s also a story that people would like to see,” Kareena told News18.

However, Kareena’s statement has rubbed many people the wrong way. Irked by her statement, netizens have criticised her for looking down upon the people of this country. While some people called out for her arrogance, some people amplified the boycott trend.

On kwK, Kareena said something gon the lines of Forrest Gump is for classy people while LSC is for masses. Even Reddit is like WTF lol. Regardless of ideology/other reasons, BW needs beatings like this just so that mediocrity that Kareena & her ikks are gets reality check!

In another interview, Kareena talked about the ‘cancel culture’ and stated that she doesn’t take such things seriously. Aamir, on the other hand, requested people not to boycott his film and urged the audience to go and watch it.
