Why ‘Shame on Rohit Shetty’ trended on Twitter today

These users monitored the position of 'Shame on Rohit Shetty' in the chart of top 10 Twitter trends, pushing it up whenever it went down

Mumbai/New Delhi: Twitter users who prima facie came across as fans of Akshay Kumar trended “Shame on Rohit Shetty” on Thursday with memes and even invectives and expletives. It had so happened that film actor Salman Khan had referred to director Rohit Shetty as a younger brother on Twitter on 12 June while thanking the latter for postponing the date of release of the film Sooryavanshi.

Salman Khan wrote in a tweet that he always considered Rohit Shetty as his younger brother and today he has proved it. Film Suryavanshi will now be released on 27 March 2020.

Sooryavanshi was supposed to release on the occasion of Eid in 2020, but the date clashed with Salman Khan’s film Inshallah. Not only is Salman believed in the film trade to draw huge crowds on Eid, but the film with a Muslim-sounding title would also add to its appeal in the community, film trade pundits hold.

This incensed the fans of Akshay Kumar. However, very few of them have given the attack a communal colour. Nevertheless, many have used unprintable words while attacking Rohit Shetty on Twitter.

Alia Bhatt plays a key role in Salman Khan’s Inshallah. The film is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Now Salman Khan says Rohit Shetty is going to release Sooryavanshi on 27 March 2020.

Apart from Akshay Kumar, Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn have important roles in Sooryavanshi. Shooting for the film is going on these days.

The three lead actors in Sooryavanshi appeared super-excited about the film.

When the release date of Sooryavanshi featuring Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgan and Ranveer Singh had first been announced, it had surprised many that this movie would be released on the same day as Salman Khan’s Inshallah.

Trade pundits say this would have been bad news for the box office prospects of both the films, especially that of Rohit Shetty. However, the tweet of Salman sounded as though Shetty had obliged ‘Sallu bhai‘.

Fans of Akshay Kumar even monitored where their trend “Shame on Rohit Shetty” was placed in the chart of top 10 Twitter trends in India throughout the day, pushing it up with more tweets whenever it went down a few notches. An example:

Some of them did not appear to be sure what they ought to tweet with the statement. They posted any random image and added “Shame on Rohit Shetty” to the tweet!
