Angry at Aamir Khan's TV show, men's rights activists boycott Talaash movie
About 15000 men's rights activists have decided to boycott Aamir Khan movie Talaash, not that the movie has offended their sensibilities, but because the actor had earlier used the highly popular TV show Satyamev Jayate to 'spread male hatred in the society'.
AAMIR KHAN has ruffled the feathers of about 15000 men's rights activists, who have decided to boycott his film Talaash, which hit the big screen last Friday. Annoyed with Khan for, what they claim, 'showing men in bad light' on his TV show Saytamev Jayate, these activists are asking for an apology from the actor.
According to this NNIS video, 15,000 men have been viewing Aamir's career from quite some time but after he came up with Satyamev Jayate, they were extremely offended to see a serial based on half-truths and showcasing one side of the coin. According to these men, they were angry with Khan and not with the film. They also feel that Aamir is spreading anti-men feelings among his audience.
One of the founders of Save Indian Family Foundations (SIFF) said, “We are protesting as we have been observing Aamir as an actor for a year now. He has portrayed anti-male agenda on his TV show and he has indulged in spreading male hatred in the society. The programme had only half-truths and was dangerous."
He added that the domestic violence issues raised on the highly-popular show were only one-sided. "We have decided we are not going to watch Talaash or any of Aamir's movies and not just that, we will also urge people to stay away it as well. Why doesn't he take up real-life campaigns with other actors and really do something? We should also be against violence in movies and not just homes,” he added further.
