Kareena Kapoor and Aamir Khan’s upcoming movie, Laal Singh Chaddha, is all set to release tomorrow [August 11]. Laal Singh Chaddha is the official Indian adaption of Tom Hanks’ Forrest Gump. Ahead of the film’s release, Kareena called Forrest Gump an ‘elitist kind of classist film’. Following this, the actress was trolled by a certain section of Twitter users. Now, Kareena has reacted to being trolled for her statement about Forrest Gump.
KAREENA ON BEING TROLLED
In an interview with News18, Kareena Kapoor opened up about getting trolled for calling Forrest Gump an ‘elitist kind of classist film’. The actress said, “Every day, there’s one reason or the other for which we’re trolled. That’s why I’m not on Twitter. I feel like it’s for people who just want to keep venting and I don’t have time for that. I’m very busy with my kids, family and work. I don’t have time for all this.”
Kareena further spoke about her comment on Forrest Gump. “Somebody who probably doesn’t speak English is going to watch the film for their love of the story which they’ve come to know from the trailer and not because it’s a remake of a Hollywood film. It’s being dubbed in Tamil and Telugu too so that people can watch and enjoy it in their own language, and there’s nothing wrong in that. Not everyone in the world would have seen Forrest Gump,” she added.
