Another Twitterati slammed Atrangi Re even further, writing, "They want to advertise the movie in Pakistan and they know that Hinduphobic content will not stop Hindus from seeing it... So keep the cake and eat it too, wala funda hai unka... we need to start boycotting, and only then will they return to normalcy." "Atrangi Re" features a scene that mocks Shiv ji and Hanuman ji, according to another. What exactly is Bollywood's problem with Hinduism? Why is there such an obsessive need to include something Hinduphobic in every film? This industry should be boycotted until it goes out of business."
