By Chetan Sharma

New Delhi, Aug 11 (SocialNews.XYZ) Aamir Khan’s star “Laal Singh Chaddha” hit theaters on Thursday. And the film is drawing mixed reviews from critics as well as audiences.


Even before the film’s release, he was facing a lot of “hate” from netizens, as the call for “Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha” had been trending on social media ever since the film’s poster was released. made public.

Several Bollywood stars have endorsed Aamir and even the actor himself has asked people to watch the movie before making a decision.

For this, model and actor Milind Soman also shared his views. Speaking exclusively to IANS, he said “trolls can’t stop a good movie”. He further instructed the filmmakers to work more on the scripts so that people would be attracted to them despite the negative comments on social media.

The fitness icon also opened up about her Aug. 15 “Unity Run” program.

Excerpts from the interview:

Q: A trend started on social media with the hashtag “Boycott Bollywood”. The “Boycott Laal Singh Chaddha” is also circulating. Why is there such hatred towards Bollywood and what should be done to stop it?

A: Not everyone can agree with everything. You like a movie, but someone else might not like it… People have their voice today and they will say what they want.

If some people don’t like someone, they’ll say we don’t like that person. If they don’t like someone’s ideas, they’ll say we don’t like that person’s ideas. Some people don’t like a politician, they will say we don’t like that politician. But as I tweeted, trolls can’t stop a movie from becoming a hit. Because people always watch good movies.

When there is a good story, people will watch it. You’re not going to say, “Oh, it’s an amazing movie, but we’re not going to watch it because we don’t like the actor.” It never happened that way.

I believe that the public is made up of three types of people. Some people like the movie, some people don’t like the movie, and some trolls don’t watch the movie at all. So that’s how it is. I mean, how important can you give them? ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’ or ‘Raksha Bandhan’ or any other upcoming movie, if the movie is good people will watch it.

My tweet wasn’t about any nationalist sentiment or anything. My tweet was actually about Indian filmmakers. Yeah, if you make a good movie, nobody can stop you. People won’t say, “Oh, I don’t like that actor, so we won’t watch that movie.”

Suppose there are 20 actors in the movie and you don’t like one actor. What will you do? So I say, work on a good script and people are going to love it.

Most scripts I get these days I read them like this (hand on forehead). I say to myself, what are these people doing (laughs)? So all I’m saying is work on good scripts. Do a good job. He will succeed.

Q: Is there a new project or movie you are working on?

A: Right now I’m making a film and a web series. I have no right to talk about it. They’re the only ones that I found very, very interesting, maybe because of the director, maybe because of the story itself. But most of what I get, I’d say about 80%, I’m like, “What’s going on? “.

Q: From “Made in India” to “Unity Run”. Or say fitness icon dummy. How do you see your journey so far?

A: I did “Made in India” after quitting modeling. I started modeling in 1989. And “Made in India” came out in 1995 when I quit modeling.

I have always been athletic. At the age of nine I started swimming and represented Maharashtra nationally. I was a national champion until I was 23, that is in 1989. And I started modeling after that, and that also by chance because someone just came from offer me a job that was interesting and the money was good too. So I said yes. I was aware of what I could do.

You know, I can enjoy all that life has to offer without thinking twice.

When it comes to encouraging people to get fit, it only happened because people got interested in getting fit. People didn’t think much about fitness or health or anything until the mid-90s, let’s say. I would say that’s when you also started seeing actors improve their physique, because they started working out in gyms. And then little by little, it became a big thing.

I think that in the early 2000s, all actors had to have a good physique. Being in shape was something that was expected of actors, which was not the case before or. I mean, the learning created a big impact. When I was 50, I became Ironman.

I posted this on my Facebook page, just a simple message, and people went crazy, especially in the media. I was in Zurich, had just finished the event and put this on Facebook and almost immediately my phone started ringing. Every publication, every news channel asked “how did you do it”?

I was like, okay, I’m 50 but I’ve always been like that and I liked doing those things. In 2012 I raced from Delhi to Bombay but it wasn’t that important because no one cared. Three years later I did Ironman, and it was huge. Everything therefore depends on the evolution of the mind of the public.

Q: On August 15, you will be in action again. You will cover a distance of 420 km from Jhansi to Delhi in eight days. Tell us something about it?

A: I started these special races for Independence Day. A number of other athletes and runners also joined me, so I decided we should do it every year. I ran 70 km on the 70th Independence Day, 71 km on the 71st, and so on.

Last year on the 74th Independence Day, when the country was struggling with the deadly virus, I decided to celebrate the theme of unity by aiming to complete a race in eight days. I always celebrate Independence Day, but last year I wanted to do something a little more commemorative. There were a lot of conflicts, that’s why I decided to take the theme of unity.
