There have been rumours that Kareena Kapoor Khan has been approached to play the role of Sita Alaukik Desai's upcoming adaptation of Ramayana. Following reports that she has demanded a whopping fee of ₹12 crore for the film, #BoycottKareenaKhan and #BoycottKareenaKapoorKhan started trending on Twitter.
While some people criticised the actress for hurting religious sentiments by charging a hefty fee, there were others who supported Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Netizens also called out Saif Ali Khan for hurting Hindu sentiments through the web series, Tandav.
