Milind Soman appears to have waded into the controversy over upcoming film Laal Singh Chaddha with one succinct tweet. On Tuesday, the model-actor tweeted: “Trolls can’t stop a good film,” signing off with a smiley face. Seemingly apropos of nothing, his tweet promptly triggered said trolls. Milind named no names in his post but he didn’t need to – the only film trolls are currently going after is Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha, co-starring Kareena Kapoor and opening later this month. Calls to boycott the film have made it to the Twitter trend list nearly every day this last week or so.
The comments thread lit up as soon as Milind posted his tweet. “You just shown lighter to petrol,” reads the top comment. Many comments invoked The Kashmir Files and Rocketry. “Don’t defend those hypocrites,” read a reply to Milind’s tweet
