Why is #Boycott83 trending in Twitter after the release of Ranveer Singh movie 83 based on Cricket World Cup?
If you are a cricket fan, you must have heard about the upcoming movie ’83’ starring Ranveer Singh, which is based on the Indian cricket team’s historic win in the 1983 World Cup. However, the movie’s release has been marred by controversy, with the hashtag #Boycott83 trending on Twitter since Friday morning. In this article, we will explore the reason behind this trend and how it is related to the late actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
The controversy surrounding the movie ’83’ started when Sushant Singh Rajput’s fans accused Ranveer Singh of mocking the late actor in a chips TV commercial that was released last year. Sushant was known for his love for physics, and some of his fans felt that the ad was making fun of him for his interest in the subject. This led to a social media campaign calling for a boycott of the movie.
The controversy escalated further when a clip from the movie’s trailer was shared on social media, in which Ranveer Singh’s character Kapil Dev says, “Ye physics wala hai, yeh kuch nahi jaanta hai” (He is a physics guy, he doesn’t know anything). Sushant’s fans saw this as a direct attack on the late actor and started using the hashtag #Boycott83 on Twitter in Sydney and worldwide to express their anger and disappointment.
Sushant Singh Rajput’s Legacy
Sushant Singh Rajput was a talented actor who made a name for himself in Bollywood with his unconventional roles and nuanced performances. He was known for his passion for science and technology and often shared his love for physics on social media.

Sushant’s fans have been vocal about their demand for justice for the late actor and have been using social media to raise awareness about his legacy. They see the controversy surrounding ’83’ as a way to keep his memory alive and ensure that his contributions to the film industry and society are not forgotten.
