'Boycott Toofaan' trends on Twitter ahead of Farhan Akhtar and Mrunal Thakur starrer's release

A film that has been in the headlines for the past few weeks is Farhan Akhtar and Mrunal Thakur starrer Toofaan. Starring Farhan as a boxer, the film showcases the journey of how he becomes a champion from being a gangster in Dongri. His love interest is played by Mrunal. She motivates him to become a boxing champion. While the story is about Aziz Ali, the boxer, it seems like his love story angle with Dr Pooja Shah aka Mrunal has triggered netizens. Amid the buzz related to the film, on Saturday, 'Boycott Toofaan' began to trend on social media. 

Several Twitter users took to social media to share their thoughts about the interfaith marriage and relationship portrayed between the characters Aziz and Pooja. Many were not comfortable with the same and claimed that 'it goes against culture' of the nation. A user wrote, "Movie sucks actor sucks and their ideology sucks and Bollywood sucks so I humbly request all my fellow citizens to please #BoycottToofaan." Another wrote, "Toofaan Movie Is against Our Culture ." Another claimed, "Remember @FarOutAkhtar Was against of CAA. It's our time, iski Toofan ko andhi main uda do."

Take a look at the tweets:
