Raksha Bandhan, starring Akshay Kumar and Aanand L Rai, has fallen in hot water only days before its release due to writer Kanika Dhillon’s Hinduphobic tweets, which have gone viral on the internet. People contended that although Kanika Dhillon has been generating money off Hindus, she has also been at the forefront of making nasty statements about the same group. She also posted a few additional posts that made fun of the government. Kanika Dhillon’s tweets have enraged many people, causing a significant social media backlash.

In the midst of all, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut resorted to social media to express her thoughts. Kangana poked fun at Kanika after she deleted contentious tweets after boycott movements. “Ha ha nothing impacts them as much as money loss,” she added. Only the threat of financial loss can motivate them to delete Hinduphobic and anti-India tweets, nothing else… intriguing.”

Raksha Bandhan, Akshay Kumar’s forthcoming big release, is planned to enter theatres on August 11, 2022. The film, starring Bhumi Pednekar, Sahejmeen Kaur, and others, has received a lot of criticism for alleged plagiarism. According to reports, the narrative of Raksha Bandhan is based on a Pakistani film. Kanika Dhillon, the author of Raksha Bandhan, was also chastised after past tweets promoting gau mutra, hijab bans, and communal lynching appeared online.
