Rajkumar Hirani۪s PK۪ seems to have stirred up quite a storm. Where some people have been raving about the film, others have been accusing it of being anti-Hindu in sentiment. So much so was the feeling of the latter that Twitter has been rife with a #BoycottPK hashtag. In contrast, a #WeSupportPK hashtag has also been used for those who are in favour of the film.
Many who have watched the film, including Juhi Chawla, have disagreed with some parts of it. The hashtag seems to accuse the film of a religious divide what with the character of PK۪, played by Aamir Khan, making social points about faith, religion, stereotypes and myths during the course of the film.
Surprisingly, despite this the film seems to be winning at the box office domestically and globally. It is almost at the 100 crore mark in India alone, showing that Khan and Hirani have created magic once again and made a film that has made people talk.
